In an expected move, the Seattle Seahawks have announced that they will start the season with wide receiver Percy Harvin on the physically unable to perform list. As such, Harvin isn’t eligible to be activated to the team’s official roster until Week 7. Pro Football Talk adds the details of starting the season on the PUP list. The Seahawks will have five weeks after Week 6 to activate Harvin for practice purposes. Once Harvin is activated, Seattle will have three weeks to place him on the 53-man roster. They can also elect to keep him sidelined for the remainder of the season. PFT notes that the Seahawks considered using the injured reserve tag on Harvin that would allow the team to bring him back this season. However, Seattle only has one such designation, and they weren’t sure they wanted to use it on a player this early in the season. When the Seahawks acquired Harvin from the Minnesota Vikings over the offseason, they were expecting him to be healthy to start Week 1. The hip procedure he was forced to undergo was a surprise for the team, and now they are dealing with the ramifications. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
