Seahawks activate Irvin

The Seahawks activated LB Bruce Irvin on Saturday and waived wide receiver Stephen Williams.

This puts Irvin in line to make his 2013 debut Sunday against the Colts in Lucas Oil Stadium.

Linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. said he expects Irvin to the be in there right away. Here's what head coach Pete Carroll had to say about Irvin on Friday:

“He’s done really well," Carroll said. "There’s just a little rough around the edges on some stuff but he’s in great shape and he’s ready to go and he’s really charged up and he’s done a lot of studying over the time that he was out of here and has come back ready to take advantage of this. He doesn’t want to wait another game or something to get going."

Waiving Williams may indicate the Seahawks think Percy Harvin is close. Harvin is eligible to be activated in Week 7.

> An update: Williams is not eligible for practice squad. So, he could only come back as part of the active roster.
