It had seemed like a foregone conclusion that Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin would land on season-ending Injured Reserve (IR) as he continues to recover from offseason hip surgery. However, despite playing in only one game this season, Harvin looked surprisingly crisp and healthy during a Monday throwing session with quarterback Russell Wilson, which led to head coach Pete Carroll putting the breaks on an IR designation.
"It will be a great thing for him [if he plays]," Carroll said. "This guy is a true competitor. To his credit, he has not given up on it. He's at a place where he has a chance. We'll see what happens."
Following the throwing session, one Seahawks player told ESPN that Harvin feels good and is mentally ready to go.
"I think he physically feels good, which affects his attitude," the player said.
Harvin, of course, backed up those sentiments with a tweet of his own on Monday night, saying "And to all the haters who tried to kick when I was down … Can't express how much fuel u added to my fire."
The veteran wide receiver, who signed a six-year, $67 million contract with the Seahawks in March, hasn't played since Week 11.
