The Seattle Seahawks have yet to get any significant contribution out of Percy Harvin that they were hoping for when they swung a trade with the Minnesota Vikings, thanks to a hip injury that has limited his ability to contribute.
With the season in it’s final stretch and the team looking for an added boost on the offense, Harvin’s return is still up in the air and head coach Pete Carroll says that he remains week-to-week.
“We’re trying to figure this thing out and when he gets out on the practice field, then it’s truly day-to-day and we’ll see how he responds,” Carroll said in quotes distributed by the team. “So as of today, he’s not going. He won’t be going, he’s rehabbing. That means that he’s running in his rehab work and we have to see if he can tolerate it and come on back and give us a couple of days work.
“We’ll have to make sure that he’s right. So we’re going to take our time and I know it seems like, ‘How can you take your time when you’re this close to the end of the season?’ But we still have to do that to take care of him.”
If Harvin was day-to-day, his return would look like it was just around the corner. However, the week-to-week status makes it look like he may be unable to return until the playoffs.
Once Harvin is able to return, he will give the team a player that is able to take it to the house on any play and give them another weapon to add to the most talented roster in the NFL.
