    Harvin to begin practicing next week, could return in mid-November

    The 5-1 Seattle Seahawks have struggled a bit on offense this season, thanks to injuries up front and inconsistency in the receiving corps. But it looks as if much-needed help is on the way soon.

    The NFL Network reports wide receiver Percy Harvin, who hasn't played in his first Seahawks season because of surgery to repair an injured hip, is set to resume practicing next week. It goes along with the thinking that coach Pete Carroll expects the explosive, versatile playmaker to be in the lineup in about a month.

    The Seahawks could use some life around quartterback Russell Wilson, as the big plays from wideouts have been sporadic and there has been little pop running or receiving outside of workhorse back Marshawn Lynch. Given Harvin's dynamic after-the-catch and ball skills, he can create a lot of mismatches to keep defenses on their heels and open up action for other players.

    Seattle has been waiting for a return on its big investment in Harvin. In March, the team sent its first-, third- and fourth-round picks to the Vikings to acquire him. The week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 28) was the rough timetable for Harvin's return, right after the Seahawks' Week 12 bye and before a critical NFC home game vs. New Orleans. Now there's a good chance Harvin will see his first action in mid-November, either against Atlanta or his former team, Minnesota.


    Glad to see Percy coming back , but just wait until after the ATL game -please son.

    Look at the success the Vikings had with Harvin, and look at the success they're not having this season without him. I think he's the most underrated player in the league, and unfortunately I think it's because of his injuries. But if he comes back 100% or close enough to it, he might be the missing piece for Seattle to get to the superbowl.

    I thought he was only supposed to miss 6 games initially. Guess that was overly optimistic.

    When I read this thread title, I got excited -- I thought maybe he had his last year of college eligibility restored. Sigh...

    Percy needs to sit out this year and get healthy. No sense in rushing things.

    This. My immediate "it's Friday and I'm still on my first cup of coffee" reaction was, AWESOME! That should really help out TM if we get Harvin back for the Florida State game!

    *sigh*

    Seattle is primed to win a super bowl this year. It's hard to just sit back and watch that opportunity go by if you feel you can play.

    Even the granola munchers have jumped on the bandwagon here in Seattle ... "I don't care if they win - they are just so fun to watch."

    I think he's talking about all the hippies, environmentalists, hipsters, etc. up here in the Pacific Northwest.

    An outdoorsy person, usually a liberal environmentalist, who likes to eat granola for energy while hiking. Has other things to do on Sunday afternoons, so it's quite remarkable if they have jumped on the Seahawks bandwagon.

    Of course, the granola muncher version of the Seahawks bandwagon is powered by a zero emission electric motor ...

    I can't watch that show. I go home to get away from those people, not wallow in more of their ridiculousness. I also stay away from the East side as much as possible...

    It just seems weird that Percy is playing for Pete Carroll.
