Receiver Percy Harvin is getting closer to returning, according to Carroll, but not ready just yet to practice full speed after recovering from hip surgery. He was held out of practice Wednesday, though he did work out before the team's walk-through.
"His hip, he doesn't have discomfort at all," Carroll said. "He ran today and ran well, felt really good about it and would love to practice today. We're just going to the next day. We're just going to make sure that we're doing it right. We want to see how this day impacted how he feels tomorrow. So we're just trying to work together to get that done."
Seattle has until next week to activate Harvin to the 53-man roster, but when the Seahawks expect him to make his debut remains uncertain.
"When we really feel secure and solid and he feels great, then we'll bust him out," Carroll said.
Harvin was rumored to return in Week 9, but there was a "flare up," though the team insists there was no setback. Whatever the case, it doesn't seem likely that Harvin will play this week which means Doug Baldwin (6-71-1 on 10 targets) will once again be a Sneaky Start. He has a great matchup with the Falcons in Week 10.
