Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin missed the NFC Championship game because of a concussion, but he is fully expected to play in Super Bowl XLVIII against the Denver Broncos after returning to practice this week.
For the Broncos, this means Seattle will have an extra weapon on the offensive side of the ball and cornerback Champ Bailey is already commenting on just how dangerous Harvin can be.
“That’s a dangerous man right there,” Bailey said, via the Denver Post. “He can change the game if you allow him to. I remember playing him when he was in Minnesota, and he’s one of the most explosive guys coming off the ball.
“I don’t know how they are going to use him. We don’t have a lot of tape on him, if any, but they are going to use him. You don’t have a weapon like that and not use it.”
Of course, injuries have plagued Harvin all year long and he has had just two touches this season, so there is a chance that Harvin won’t even be able to stay on the field during the big game.
If he is, however, the Broncos will have to make sure they don’t get too caught up in stopping the run from Marshawn Lynch that they let Harvin blow the top off of their defense on a play-action fake.
