Percy Harvin was on the field for 21 plays during his debut appearance with the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
He caught just one pass for 17 yards and got one kickoff return opportunity that he broke for a 58-yard gain, but the Seahawks weren’t going to load him up with too much during his first game in over a year.
That’s expected to change when the Seahawks return from their bye week.
“When we come back, if everything goes like we hope, then he’ll be right back in the mix and he’ll be in normal rotation and returning kicks and the whole thing,” head coach Pete Carroll said Monday.
Carroll said Harvin was understandably sore after his first game since Nov. 4, 2012. Carroll hadn’t planned on using Harvin on kickoff returns against the Vikings but Seattle lost Jermaine Kearse in the first quarter and Harvin began to plead for an opportunity. As we stated before, Harvin will have some tough matchups down the stretch and into the fantasy playoffs, but it appears he will be a full go in Week 13.
