RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Percy Harvin was back on the practice field for the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday.

When he finally gets into a game is still unknown.

Harvin was limited in his return to practice for the Seahawks. It was his first work with the team since undergoing hip surgery in early August. Harvin said a bone in his hip was impacting his labrum and causing pain. He said it was a “cut and dry” decision to have the surgery, but difficult to accept joining a new team.

Harvin said he wants to get back into a game as soon as he can, but wants to be smart and not return too soon. Harvin has not played in a regular-season game since Week 9 of last season when he was with Minnesota and suffered an ankle injury against the Seahawks.
