Seahawks’ WR Percy Harvin will play against Saints


It appears the long road back for Seattle Seahawks’ wide receiver Percy Harvin is reaching its end.  According to an Associated Press report, via CSN Bay Area, the oft-injured receiver will suit up and play this Saturday for the ‘Hawks divisional round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field.

“We’re excited about him going and excited for him. It’s been a long, long haul for a guy that’s such a great competitor and it means so much,” Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said. “For him to have the opportunity to join us now is really exciting, I know, for him and us, too.”

Harvin played in just one game this season — against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings – and caught one pass for 17 yards before aggravating a lingering hip injury that required surgery in early August.

 “I’m just glad to be out there helping my team win right now,” Harvin said, via the Associated Press report. “The playoffs, that’s what we all dream about, to have home-field advantage, to have all the things the team has put in place. It would be hard for me to try to not be out there. Everything worked out for the best and I’m looking forward to being out there and helping this team win.”
