Seahawks and Vikings both keeping an eye on Percy Harvin’s impending return

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has referred to Percy Harvin’s recovery from a hip injury suffered on the first day of training camp in phases. “Phase 1″ was his surgery and rehab, “Phase 2″ started a couple of weeks ago when Harvin was able to inch his way into some work on the practice field , and “Phase 3″ officially started on Nov. 11, when the Seahawks activated Harvin from the Physically Unable to Perform list and he started a regimen of more focused practice. It’s been a long wait for Carroll, whose team traded a first-round pick to the Minnesota Vikings for Harvin’s services in March, then signed him to a six-year, $67 million contract with $25.5 million guaranteed.

Harvin was set to practice Wednesday, and “Phase 3″ appears to be going along swimmingly.

“I didn’t want to get too definitive with our phases and all that, but we’re in Phase 3,” Carroll said with a laugh on Wednesday. “But he’ll practice today, which is good.”

The ideal timeline all along for Harvin’s return was the Week 11 game against his former team, which will come to CenturyLink field to face the 9-1 Seahawks. If the Seahawks can get Harvin in the game for a few snaps, there’s the bye week after that, and then the New Orleans Saints come to town. Needless to say, Seattle will need all its weapons on hand against New Orleans. The question now for Harvin seems be less about when he’ll return, and more about what he’ll do in that first game. Given Harvin’s ability to break explosive plays as a receiver, runner and returner, the issue is more complex with him than with most.
