When the Seattle Seahawks announced that wide receiver Percy Harvin was going to be making his return to the team this weekend against the New Orleans Saints, fans immediately began imaging the kick returns for touchdowns nd massive deep plays he’d be involved in.
The last thing fans imagined, but feared in the back of their minds, was Harvin getting injured again. That’s exactly what happened though not he Seahawks first drive of the game as the Seahawks speedy receiver took a violent shot from Rafael Bush which knocked Harvin out of the game.
Harvin leaving the game was eerily reminiscent of the Jamaal Charles injury on the first drive of the Kansas City Chiefs playoff game last week. Charles wasn’t hit as hard has Harvin was, but left the game in similar fashion and did not return for the remainder of the contest.
There is hope that Harvin will return, but the fact that he has left the field and headed to the locker room seems to suggest that his return to the team may have been short lived.
UPDATE: Harvin returned from the locker room and re-entered the game on the Seahawks second drive of the game.
