Seahawks' Harvin returns to practice

The Sports NetworkOctober 21, 2013 

Renton, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin was back on the practice field Monday for the first time this season.

The offseason acquisition is recovering from surgery performed on his hip back in August and is currently on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, but is eligible to be activated this week.

NFL.com had previously reported last week that Harvin was on the verge of resuming practicing and had an outside chance of playing in Seattle's game at St. Louis, which will take place next Monday night.

The Seahawks traded a 2013 first-round pick to the Minnesota Vikings to obtain Harvin, one of the league's most dynamic receivers and return men who has battled injuries all throughout his first four seasons in the league.

Harvin compiled 62 catches for 677 yards and three touchdowns over nine games with the Vikings last season, missing the final seven contests due to a severely sprained ankle. He produced 967 yards and six touchdowns on 87 receptions the previous year, while adding 345 yards and two more scores on 52 rushing attempts.

The versatile 25-year-old has also returned five kickoffs for touchdowns over his career.
