This doesn’t necessarily come as a shock, but Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin is not playing today against the Atlanta Falcons. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting that “it would be an upset if he did not make season debut next Sunday vs. his former Vikings team.”
“Percy is the best he’s been,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said, via Curtis Crabtree of Pro Football Talk. “He had another excellent day. He’s not ready to play this week. He’ll return to practice, hopefully, next week and we’ll just go one day at a time then. All of the signs are really encouraging.
“He feels good. He’s not having any issues after he works out the next day so I think we’ve built up enough days here to take a real good positive step. I don’t know what that means in terms of playing next week but we’re hoping he’ll be able to get some extra work and really jump back into it.”
Harvin was expected to make a return earlier but suffered a set back.
