(SEATTLE) — When the Seattle Seahawks host the New Orleans Saints in their NFC Divisional playoff matchup, they will have an added weapon in wide receiver Percy Harvin. The five-year veteran said after Thursday’s practice that he was “feeling great” and is ready to take on the Saints.
Harvin, who had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip on Aug. 1, played in one game before suffering a setback after taking the field against Minnesota on Nov. 17. The wideout had not practiced until last week but had been showing signs of improvement.
During his Week 11 debut, Harvin played 19 snaps before swelling and stiffness in his hip limited his play the rest of the year. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Harvin will have no limitations on Saturday. Harvin said he expects to return kicks as well as play receiver.
