Percy Harvin countdown begins

The countdown begins now on Seattle Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin’s possible playoff appearance. Three days of practice before the final verdict comes in, probably after Thursday’s practice.

“He looked great in practice last week,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday on his 710 ESPN Seattle radio show. “But he’s got a lot of hard days this week to see if he can make it through it. The accumulation of days is what will tell us. It’s a delicate situation. He will go at it the best he can.”

Since the Seahawks play New Orleans on Saturday in the NFC divisional round playoff game, the typical team schedule has moved up a day. Tuesday normally is an off day for the players, but it’s the first of three full practice sessions this week.

It’s possible after Thursday’s practice Carroll could say Harvin will be a game-time decision, just to keep the Saints guessing about his status. But we should have a good indication by Thursday afternoon whether he will play or not.

Harvin had major hip surgery on Aug. 1 to repair a torn labrum. He returned for one game on Nov. 17, playing 19 snaps against his former Minnesota Vikings teammates, but that was it.

Harvin aggravated his hip and didn’t return to the practice field again until last week after convincing Carroll not to place him on injured reserve. Carroll was asked if Harvin told him he could play.

“That’s always been the way he has seen it,” Carroll said. “But specifically, it got to where we had to make a call. It was one week ago when we looked at each other eye to eye.

“He had a good workout that morning [Dec. 30th]. He said, ‘OK, I think I can go. I can make this.’ I was hoping he would say that.”

Carroll said there is no in between as far as bringing Harvin back in limited fashion.

“If he’s playing, he’s playing,” Carroll said. “That’s how I’m looking at it. And I know that’s how he’s looking at it.”
