Now that Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin has returned to practice for the Seahawks on Tuesday, the question becomes how soon he’ll play.
How about Monday night?
Per a league source, Harvin could play against the Rams in six days.
The key would is “could.” No decision has been made whether he will. It depends on how Harvin performs and how his surgically repaired hip responds.
We’ve previously heard that the Seahawks won’t hold Harvin until a later point in the season. When he’s ready, he’ll play.
But why play him on Monday night at St. Louis against a team with Kellen Clemens at the top of the quarterback depth chart? The Seahawks definitely don’t need Harvin in order to beat the Rams.
The goal could be to show a few looks that future opponents will have to deal with in preparing to face a Seahawks offense that could use a little boost. Against teams better than the Rams.
Regardless of whether Harvin actually plays on Monday night, the Seahawks now have three weeks to let him practice without adding him to the active roster. When he’s moved to the active roster, the Seahawks would have to cut a player, waive a player, or put someone on a “reserve” list.
