Twelve days ago, the Seahawks were prepared to put receiver Percy Harvin on injured reserve, shutting him down for the postseason run.
Then, out of the blue, Harvin was practicing and looking good and ultimately he’ll be playing on Sunday against the Saints.
So what happened? How did Harvin go from being a day away from IR to ready to suit up for the divisional round?
Peter King of TheMMQB.com explained during Friday’s PFT Live that the threat to put Harvin on injured reserve may have been aimed at getting him to practice hard in the hopes of getting him ready to play and play well.
If so, it worked. If so, it shows that Harvin remains somewhat of a challenge when it comes to getting him properly motivated and consistently focused on doing what he has to do to be as successful as possible.
