Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin is aiming to return to the practice field as early as next week, according to NBC Sports Josh Alper. The dynamic receiver has been sidelined since the preseason with a torn labrum that required surgery and extensive rehab. It was originally assumed that Harvin would be out until Thanksgiving. However, it now seems the Seahawks newest superstar is well ahead of schedule as it is now being reported that he began running last week. Obviously, that is a huge milestone in his recovery. Harvin was acquired from the Minnesota Vikings this offseason for Seattle’s first round pick in the 2013 NFL draft. It’s fair to say that the trade was a blockbuster deal for the Seahawks and one that the entire organization was beaming over all preseason. The versatile receiver was expected to add a dynamic element to Seattle’s offense and special teams. Plus, Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell was in Minnesota when Harvin was drafted, so he was going to a familiar system with at least one familiar face. Unfortunately, everything was derailed when Seattle’s key offseason acquisition sustained a torn labrum in his hip.Fortunately for the Seahawks, they have managed to start the season 4-1 including a pivotal division win over the San Francisco 49ers’. While nobody will deny the potential impact Percy Harvin could have on Seattle’s offensive production, he is clearly considered a luxury for a very good team. It is quite possible that head coach Pete Carroll will play it safe with Harvin until he is 100% healthy. After all, what is the point of rushing their young playmaker back when the Seahawks are already playing like one of the league’s elite teams?Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
