After making a big trade with the Minnesota Vikings to bring wide receiver Percy Harvin to the NFC West, the Seattle Seahawks could finally be seeing a return in their investment. Harvin has been dealing with a serious hip injury, but it appears that his return to the field is closer than ever.
If everything goes according to plan, he’ll be suiting up for practice next week.
From Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network:

There could be a chance that Harvin plays as early as Week 8, since the Seahawks plan tonight on Thursday night football and will have extra time to prepare, so keep a close eye out on his status moving forward — especially if you are one of those fantasy football players that stashed him away on your bench.
Harvin will add a new dynamic to the Seahawks offense when he returns, so we could finally see this team take the step to the next level.
