When Seahawks coach Pete Carroll recently said receiver Percy Harvin has returned to New York for rehab on his hip, some viewed that as a sign that Harvin may not be as ahead of schedule as he hinted early this month, when he suggested that fans keep an eye on Week Seven.
Per a league source, Harvin’s return to New York actually means he’s doing extremely well in his effort to recover from surgery to repair a hip problem that was flagged in his training camp physical. But that doesn’t mean we’ll see him in Week Seven, or soon thereafter.
The Seahawks could go 4-0 for the first time in franchise history on Sunday. And if they continue to thrive without Harvin, the powers-that-be may be inclined to unleash him as late as possible, with an eye toward getting maximum pop in the postseason.
