Percy Harvin injury update: Seahawks ‘not counting’ on WR for Week 10

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin may be back at practice, but his team doesn’t expect to have him back for Week 10, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times

 Harvin, who signed a lucrative free agent contract with the Seahawks over the offseason, has yet to suit up for the ‘Hawks, who sorely need a presence on the outside capable of stretching the field after the season-ending ACL injury to Sidney Rice. Harvin returned to the practice field in October but is still day-to-day in terms of his recovery from a hip injury.

Seattle has a bye week in Week 12, but Harvin should be available before then when the Packers face his former team the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11. As the division race tightens after the season’s halfway point, the Seahawks will want to establish him as a key component of an offense that’s struggled to find balance. 

As he continues to increase his workout intensity, the situation will be as dynamic as he is a playmaker.
