Carroll says Harvin will practice again next week

AP

The Seahawks won an ugly one over the Buccaneers last week, but they’re on the verge of looking much better.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Friday that wide receiver Percy Harvin would practice next week, and that tackles Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini would practice next Wednesday with an eye toward playing next weekend.

Harvin worked a week ago, then they pulled the reins back a bit to let him take his time coming back from preseason hip surgery.

Percy is the best he’s been,” Carroll said, via our Curtis Crabtree. “He had another excellent day. He’s not ready to play this week. He’ll return to practice, hopefully, next week and we’ll just go one day at a time then. All of the signs are really encouraging.

“He feels good. He’s not having any issues after he works out the next day so I think we’ve built up enough days here to take a real good positive step. I don’t know what that means in terms of playing next week but we’re hoping he’ll be able to get some extra work and really jump back into it.”

The tackles worked fully in practice Friday, and should be full speed for next Week 11.

The Seahawks are playing well enough to be 8-1 without those guys at the moment. Adding them in for the stretch run could make them even more dangerous than they already appear.

  1. if they stay mostly healthy and can keep the #1 seed in the NFC, It will take a monster game to knock them out of the playoffs

  2. Harvin will first go up against the vikings in seattle…right where he was basically cut a year ago.

    but don’t worry vikings fans! Ponder looked great last night! right? right? isn’t that the theme? i’m sure he’ll just tear up that seattle secondary!

    i cannot believe how many vikings fans think that yesterday shows there is still hope for playoffs.

    yes, there are vikings fans saying playoffs.

    there are no words…

    they appear to be a team headed for doom in the playoffs. these injuries will come back around

    Gee Trevor, or should I say Miss Cleo?
    Since you can see into the future…
    Could you give me the winning lottery numbers for next week?
    Thanks in advance!

    Go Hawks!

  4. I love the ‘Hawks and Percy coming back will add quite a new dimension to the attack. Add in Okung and Giacomini and they become a very, very tough game. If they can hold onto the home field advantage through the playoffs, they will be close to unstoppbable. But they have to find a way to keep winning until those guys get back.

    Where are there Viking fans talking about playoffs? That’s news to me (and probably all other Viking fans).

    At any rate, getting Okung back will probably be a big help — but I expect there to be a period of adjustment while Seattle tries to figure out how best to integrate Harvin in to their offense in mid-season. I’m sure Seattle will eventually benefit from Harvin, but I’m skeptical of this notion that it will just be an immediate night and day difference. (Seattle fans seem particularly touchy; I feel obligated to point out I consider them favorites to win the NFC with or without Harvin before I get bashed for speaking out of turn).

  6. Tainted saints take ur whining somewhere else. Id be happy if the vikes just went home, so nice try at smack talk. We fell just short against washington but hopefully seattle is different. Mariota to Minnysota

    its amazing how many hawks fans crawl out of the woodwork after a winning year

    Youre obviously no older than 16 so i’m going to fill you in on a little secret…EVERY team in every sport has those fans.The difference? The Seahawks still sold out when we won 4 games 4 years ago

  8. @taintedsaints2009,

    show me one post of a vikes fan talking playoffs? mook. but don’t let the truth get in the way of a good fairy tale, right?

    trolling the vikings on a thread about the seahawks…there are no words.

  9. Good luck with Excedrin Migraine. When healthy, and when willing to be a good teammate, he’s fun to watch. But that’s as far as he’ll take you.

    Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to the future(not the playoffs this year, tainted saints) and many great seasons with a true quarterback, and most importantly, Cordarrelle Patterson. We like to call him CP84.

    Thanks Seattle!
