Harvin back on practice field for Seahawks

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Wide receiver Percy Harvin has returned to the practice field for the Seattle Seahawks for the first time since the middle of November.

Harvin took part in practice on Thursday as the Seahawks began preparations for their divisional playoff game on Jan. 11. Harvin was not available to speak about his return and the team was not required to submit an injury report, but quarterback Russell Wilson said after practice he believes Harvin is ready to go.

Harvin missed the first 2½ months of the season following hip surgery in early August. He returned in Week 11 against Minnesota and caught one pass and had a 58-yard kickoff return. Harvin was then sidelined again by what coach Pete Carroll called “soreness” following his debut.
