Percy Harvin fully participates in practice for Seahawks


For the first time since becoming a member of the team in March, Percy Harvin fully participated in a practice with the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday.

It’s just another sign that Harvin is closing in on his debut for the 9-1 Seahawks.

Harvin had been limited throughout the offseason even prior to the decision to have hip surgery on August 1. He had appeared sparingly in the team’s OTA’s that were open to the media and did not take part in their veteran mini-camp in June. Harvin was placed on the physically unable to perform list to start training camp before it became apparent Harvin would need surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip.

Harvin first returned to practice three weeks ago for two days before having to take a step back once again as his hip got sore from his first football related work since June. Seattle had Harvin undergo another MRI to make sure everything was still on track and he’s continued to improve over the past two weeks while not being on the practice field.

Harvin was activated to the 53-man roster on Monday and head coach Pete Carroll said Harvin was ready to get back into practices on Wednesday.

“He feels 100 percent,” Carroll said. “He feels like he’s ready to go and go for it. He’s run really hard, I’ve seen him on the practice field a lot and watched him in his workouts, and he’s on it. It’s a pretty excited time so we’re all encouraged.”

Harvin appears to be on track to make his debut Sunday against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings, this Sunday. Carroll has said throughout the process it’s a day-to-day process with Harvin. They’ve wanted to see how he handles the workload one day and how he feels the next day. If Harvin is able to practice full speed again Friday for Seattle, it could very well mean all systems are a go for Sunday’s game.

  1. If the folks in the Jet City think Golden Tate is a good WR wait till the get a load of #11. He can be a head case but, when motivated can flat-out dominate. Broncos are still the best although I would really love to take the ferry over, if still stationed at Bangor, to watch the Hawks. Time to explode Percy!

  2. Should be a good rest of the season for the Seahawks now that Percy has already gotten his prerequisite 8-10 games on IR out of the way..

    Good luck in ’14.

  3. An exuberant pete carroll shouts upon the noble* 12th man, “Percy Harvin III has arrived!!! He’s going to make really cool plays!!” Percy, clothed in a white robe, is guided to his hand drawn salt bath. An all-night prayer vigil is held, after which Percy takes oath that includes the following points:

    -He would be brave.
    -He would never avoid dangerous paths out of fear.
    -He would be on time for any engagement of arms.
    -He would only smoke pot legally (at home, etc).
    -When on a quest, he would remove his pads only while sleeping.

    John Schneider of the clergy then dubs the new WR as a bonafide #1. After being suited in his pads, Sir William Percival Harvin III mounts a white horse and sets out into the night.

    Opposition prays that the code of chivalry will prevent this well-armed and well-trained knight from wreaking havoc on the rest of the NFL.


  4. I never had respect for this guy. The league is filled with self-centered me-first players. Minnesota was fortunate to unload this malcontent.

  5. 9-1 Without Harvin, Mostly without Unger and both starting tackles?

    I feel for the rest of the NFC as all these key players return to the field. Home field advantage in the playoffs takes on a whole new meaning when it’s Seattle lately.
