Percy Harvin: ‘Absolutely’ playing vs. Saints
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin said Thursday that he “absolutely” plans on playing this weekend in the NFL divisional playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.
“I’m feeling great,” Harvin said after Thursday’s practice, according to ESPN.com. “I didn’t have any setbacks. These practices have been very good. I’m really confident about this game.”
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Thursday that Harvin will play, and that he won’t have any limitations.
The Seahawks get Harvin back again at just the right time. Harvin missed the first 2 1/2 months of the season following hip surgery in early August. He returned in Week 11 against Minnesota, caught one pass, and had a 58-yard kickoff return.
But Harvin had a setback in the game, and he experienced swelling and stiffness in his hip. He didn’t return to practice until last week.
“It goes through my mind,” Harvin said about the possibility of another setback, according to ESPN. “But I’m just gonna cut it loose. I made all the cuts in practice that I possibly could do in the game. I felt no limitations, and no swelling came back. I’m gonna go out there and give it all I have.”
