Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that receiver Percy Harvin will practice this week.
“Percy is going to practice with us when we get back (Thursday) with the intention of playing in this next game,” Carroll said during his weekly day-after Q&A session with the media. “And we’ll see what happens. That’s the intention and we’ve got to see how he goes.
“He’s come to the point where we can go to that and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for him. He wants to contribute and be part of this team. And he’s going to do everything he can to be part of that.”
Harvin, who signed a $67 million, six-year deal with Seattle in March, had major hip surgery Aug. 1 to repair a torn labrum. He has not played since returning six weeks ago because of soreness in his hip.
“It will be a great thing for him, first off,” Carroll said. “This guy is a true competitor and he would do anything to play. He’s been fighting for some time now, months and months, to try to position himself so that he could get back here. And to his credit, he has not given up on it.
“He’s at a place where he has a chance. So we’ll see what happens.”
