The Seahawks play their sixth game of the season when they host the Titans on Sunday and reaching that point means that players on the PUP list will be eligible to start practicing and/or playing with the team.
Wide receiver Percy Harvin is just such a player. Harvin has been rehabbing his hip since surgery to repair a torn labrum and has most recently been doing so in New York with the medical personnel that performed the surgery. During an appearance on 710 ESPN in Seattle on Monday, Carroll was asked about the receiver’s condition.
“He will be back in town this week,” Carroll said. “He was in New York to make sure that the doctor that did the surgery and his rehab team back there was really on it and could really sign off on him. So he’ll be back with us. I know he started running last week. I don’t know any more than that until we get him out here working with our guys. It’s encouraging, we’re getting closer and if it can happen it’s going to happen as soon as possible.”
This week should bring some more clarity to the outlook for Harvin’s return as the Seahawks get a chance to figure out if the wideout they expected to be one of their offensive leaders will be able to help them at all this year.
