The Seahawks’ biggest offensive concern right now is an injury-riddled offensive line that isn’t doing a great job of protecting Russell Wilson.
The return of wide receiver Percy Harvin from hip surgery wouldn’t do much to shore up that area, but it should have a positive impact on the offense all the same. Harvin is eligible to come off the PUP list when Week Six is officially in the books and coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Harvin doesn’t appear to be too far off from making it back to practice.
Carroll said on ESPN 710, via the Seattle Times, that Harvin ran well last week in his return to Seattle after rehabbing in New York. With a short week before Thursday’s game against the Cardinals, it’s unclear if Harvin will practice this week but Carroll said it’s “getting very close” and that Harvin’s “not too far off now.”
On Football Night in America on Sunday night, Mike Florio reported that the Seahawks won’t hold Harvin back for the tail end of the season. Once he’s deemed ready to play, the Seahawks are expected to put him on the field. Based on what Carroll said Monday, that may not be too long a wait.
