Percy Harvin still expected to miss a few weeks

Percy Harvin’s hip injury has forced him to continue standing on the sidelines and put his Seattle Seahawks debut on hold, but there was some hope that his return could be just around the corner after learning that he made the trip back to Seattle to continue rehabbing for the team.

While that caused some to think he could return in a few weeks, it still seems highly unlikely that Harvin will return in November.

According to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, it is not realistic to believe Harvin can return as soon as he is activated from the physically-unable to perform list.

“I don’t think that is realistic. I think that is too soon to expect that to happen,” Carroll said, via PFT “We want him to be able to endure the rigors of the end of the season,” Carroll said. “It’s not important to rush him back, it’s important to wait it out and be patient and get him out there when he’s ready to go and withstand the load of the game.”

Harvin could be key for the team down the final stretch of the season and allow their offense to have more diversity than ever before.

Harvin was brought in to be the deep threat that this team lacks and if he is able to add that element during the last few weeks of the season and in to the playoffs, the move will have been well worth it for the Seahawks.
