The Seattle Seahawks will get to witness the debut of their prized free agent acquisition when wide receiver Percy Harvin makes his 2013 NFL debut this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, but they could also get Pro Bowl left tackle Russell Okung back. The Seahawks frankly need Okung back more than anyone, as their offensive line has struggled mightily this year, and it’s hard to see them getting to a Super Bowl with the line they are having to use right now.

But Okung”s return could drastically change that, as he was playing like one of the best tackles in the game but has been out since getting a toe injury in Week 2. He participated fully in Friday’s final full practice, but his status will be a game-day decision, according to Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll.

“The week went very well,” Carroll said. “The guys practiced throughout. They did all of the things that we asked them to do during the week and made it through all of the reps and the turns and came back each day. Now we’ve got to get through tomorrow and make sure that after today’s work everybody is fit and ready to go.
