JERSEY CITY, N.J. — After struggling all season to return from hip surgery, all signs continue to point to the Seahawks' Percy Harvin returning for the Super Bowl.
How much Harvin plays is another question.
“I can't tell you,” Harvin said Wednesday, when asked what was going to happen Sunday. “I'm so excited to play football, be healthy and feel the way I'm feeling right now. It's going to be a good game.”
Harvin has played in only one regular-season game this year — the Seahawks' 41-20 win against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11. Though he had only one catch for 17 yards, he did return a kickoff 58 yards. He had three receptions for 21 yards in Seattle's divisional round win against New Orleans before suffering a concussion.
If Harvin can play significant snaps, he'll be a welcome addition to a Seattle club that, for all its strengths, is thin at wide receiver.
“He's a terrific football player, with the dynamics of the tremendous speed that he has, the intensity that he brings when the ball's in his hands — how he carries it, he runs like a running back — he's unusually aggressive and he's such a versatile athlete, that you have a lot of opportunities to do different things with him,” head coach Pete Carroll said.
