The Seattle Seahawks expect wide receiver Percy Harvin to get some playing time today. It will be his first game with the team and earlier in the week Harvin suggested that he is ready to take the field.
“I definitely think I’m ready to play,’’ Harvin said, via the Seattle Times. “I’ve still got a lot of work to do, but I think I am ready to start playing.’’
Head coach Pete Carroll will monitor his snaps as he tries to know the rust off.
“It’s only understandable that he might be a little rusty,’’ Carroll said. “He hasn’t played a lot of football right now, so we won’t load him up with too much. Hopefully he can contribute and help us win.’’
Harvin’s debut comes against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings.
“It’s good to play those guys and be able to see those guys,’’ Harvin said. “ … But this is solely about the Seattle Seahawks and me being able to be out there and play again and get ready for this playoff run. It has nothing to do with the Vikings.’’
What to expect from #Seahawks WR Percy Harvin? I’m told 10-15 plays, depending on flow of the game. Would be surprised if he plays specials
