RENTON, Wash. (AP) — There is still no definitive date for when wide receiver Percy Harvin will make his Seattle Seahawks debut.

And just as much of an unknown is what Harvin’s role will be when he’s finally given the OK to get back in a game for the first time in a calendar year.

The analysis of how Harvin would fit with the Seahawks first started when he was acquired in a trade with Minnesota in March, then was put on hold when Harvin underwent hip surgery to repair an injured labrum in early August.

It’s all restarted this week as Harvin returned to practice for the Seahawks, ahead of the initial timeline that was presented for his recovery. Coach Pete Carroll reiterated Thursday that Harvin’s return remains a day-to-day evaluation.
