Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin is fine after dealing with a concussion, and is going to be used all over the field in the Super Bowl.
Huddle Up: It's taken until the final game of the season, but it looks like we might finally a healthy dose of Harvin, who likely will return kicks, catch passes and even take a few handoffs on rushing plays.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Jan. 27, that WR Percy Harvin (concussion) had another good day during the team's walkthrough, and he is on course to play and be a full-go in Super Bowl XLVIII against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Feb. 2.
Huddle Up: A healthy Harvin gives the Seattle passing game another element, one certainly more dynamic than Russell Wilson's current crop of receivers.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin has passed his concussion tests and has been cleared to play in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Huddle Up: As expected, Harvin has received the green light, and now it's the Broncos' concern on what to expect from the multi-talented wideout, who has had only 6 total touches (4 receptions, 1 rush, 1 kickoff return) in 2 games with the 'Hawks this season.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (concussion) still must be cleared to play in Super Bowl XLVIII, but head coach Pete Carroll is optimistic and said that Harvin 'should be fine' against the Denver Broncos. He practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 22.
Huddle Up: Harvin will have had 3 weeks to recover by the time Super Sunday rolls around, and his presence will be a major wild card for the Broncos' D and special teams to deal with as Harvin simply hasn't played enough this season for the opposition to get a game-plan gauge on him.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Harvin is making his way through the league's concussion protocol, and he has to be considered a longshot to play Sunday at this point.

Posted: 1/14/2014 1:23pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Jan. 13, that WR Percy Harvin (concussion, hip) made it through the NFC Divisional game against the New Orleans Saints fine, as far as his hip is concerned. 'Way ahead of the game on that,' Carroll said. The concussion Harvin suffered during the game is the issue now.
Huddle Up: As if Harvin needed more hurdles to clear, now comes the concussion protocol this week and there will be no shortcuts permitted with the league monitoring these situations closer than ever.

Posted: 1/12/2014 12:35pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin will have to go through the concussion protocol before being cleared to play further in the postseason.
Huddle Up: It was a rough return for Harvin,who was involved early (3-21 receiving, 1-9 rushing) in Saturday's divisional-round win over the New Orleans Saints before leaving with a concussion. Going forward, you know the drill as the WR will have clear the league-mandated hurdles.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 8, increasing the chances that he'll play in the divisional round against the New Orleans Saints this weekend. It's the first time he's been a full participant in practice this year.
Huddle Up: Keep tabs on how Harvin follows up on Thursday and Friday, but at this point, expect him to at least have a limited kick return/wide receiver role Saturday against the Saints.

Posted: 1/4/2014 10:41pm et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) participated fully in practice Friday, Jan. 3, except for the two-minute drill. He reportedly looked good, and is considered day to day heading into next week.
Huddle Up: Getting Harvin back would be a huge bonus for the Seahawks, who have done just fine without him but would become multifaceted offensively if he's able to play. That he went full a week early has to be considered a positive sign for his availability in the Seahawks' playoff opener next week.

The Seattle Seahawks won't put WR Percy Harvin (hip) on the season-ending Injured Reserve after he had an encouraging workout Monday, Dec. 30, according to sources. The sources said Harvin looked 'amazing' during the throwing session with QB Russell Wilson, and the team thinks Harvin could play when the team has its first playoff game Jan. 11. Harvin is expected to rejoin practice with the team Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Go ahead and stash Harvin at the end of your playoff fantasy roster. Hope it works out better than it did for those who stashed Harvin at the end of their regular season fantasy roster.

Posted: 12/31/2013 11:27am et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) will participate in practice this week.
Huddle Up: Harvin has teased us before, but at least the Seahawks are saying there's a chance he could play this postseason.

Posted: 12/24/2013 10:54pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) might not play again until next season. Carroll said there is a chance Harvin is placed on the Injured Reserve.
Huddle Up: That certainly would be no surprise after the WR has been unable to practice or play since his limited work in Week 11.

Posted: 12/23/2013 3:46pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said there is no update on WR Percy Harvin (hip), and the team does not know if he will be able to practice Wednesday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like Harvin will be back this week, but there is a long shot. We're not sure you should trust him even if he does play.

Posted: 12/18/2013 10:54pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Harvin is done for the regular season and has no fantasy value until 2014.

Posted: 12/18/2013 11:34am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is expected to be out until at least the playoffs.
Huddle Up: Harvin made a cameo appearance against his former team a couple weeks back, but if he makes an impact with the Seahawks at all this year it will have to come in the postseason.

Posted: 12/17/2013 10:24pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team will re-evaluate WR Percy Harvin (hip) heading into the team's Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Hopefully by now you're not counting on any meaningful production out of Harvin for the remainder of the regular season.

Posted: 12/13/2013 8:11pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Harvin is likely done for 2013 and now only has fantasy relevance in dynasty leagues.

Posted: 12/11/2013 10:13pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Harvin is likely out for the remainder of the regular season and off the fantasy radar until 2014.

Posted: 12/10/2013 12:10am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is listed as day-to-day. 'We'll find out Wednesday if he can go,' head coach Pete Carroll said on Harvin.
Huddle Up: Harvin has missed the last 2 games after his hip flared up, and he remains a risky fantasy proposition at best.

Posted: 12/6/2013 4:10pm et
The Seattle Seahawks officially ruled WR Percy Harvin (hip) out for Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers. Harvin did some running drills before practice earlier this week but hasn't practiced since Week 12.
Huddle Up: Be very wary of having Harvin available the rest of the regular season after it was revealed that he underwent a "little" procedure on his surgically repaired hip last week.

Posted: 12/4/2013 10:14pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Harvin could miss the remainder of the regular season. Owners who stashed Harvin shouldn't expect him to contribute during fantasy playoffs.

Posted: 12/4/2013 12:16am et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) 'had a little procedure last week' after his hip injury flared up. He was inactive for Seattle's Monday night win over the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: This "little" procedure should be considered a big deal by Harvin's fantasy owners as it raises some serious questions about the WR's availability for the remainder of the regular season.

Posted: 12/2/2013 8:16pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is active Monday, Dec. 2 for the team's game against the New Orleans Saints. The Seahawks are waiting to see how Harvin responds to cortisone injections. Holding him out for the remainder of the regular season is a real option, hoping to get him healthy for the playoffs.
Huddle Up: There was always a risk, of course, in relying on a player coming off surgery in the same season, but this nonetheless throws an untimely curveball at fantasy GMs who were banking on having Harvin available for the fantasy playoffs. The WR's availability looks like a week-to-week proposition, but at 10-1 entering Monday night's game, the Seahawks obviously are focusing on the long term, rather than the short term.

Posted: 12/2/2013 2:31pm et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) doesn't expect to play in the team's Week 13 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Dec. 2, after receiving a cortisone injection in his surgically repaired hip over the weekend.
Huddle Up: In case you were hoping he would go tonight, here is an update. Again, this doesn't bode well for next week and beyond either, but keep an eye on Harvin's hip this week.

Posted: 12/2/2013 12:25pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) received a cortisone injection in his surgically repaired hip over the weekend.
Huddle Up: This does not bode well for him the rest of the way.

Posted: 11/30/2013 7:42pm et
Updating an earlier report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) has been downgraded to doubtful for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Harvin suffered a setback to his hip injury and almost certainly won't play on Monday night against the Saints. His availability for fantasy playoffs could now be in jeopardy.

Posted: 11/25/2013 2:08pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he expects WR Percy Harvin (hip) to fully participate in practice this week.
Huddle Up: This is excellent news if you have been holding onto him all this time. He should get into your lineup.

Posted: 11/18/2013 8:16pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) will not be limited in the offense moving forward and will be used as a kick returner.
Huddle Up: Harvin got a taste of action Sunday and now with the Hawks' Week 12 bye, he has 15 days to prep for Seattle's next contest -- a crucial Week 13 Monday Night Football showdown against the Saints.

Posted: 11/15/2013 9:03pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) practiced Friday, Nov. 15, and expects to play in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. 'I definitely think I'm ready to play,' Harvin said. 'I still have a lot of work to do, but it was great to be out there with my teammates running plays and going to the huddle. Hopefully everything goes well (Saturday) and I can look forward to the game.' He is officially listed as probable, but head coach Pete Carroll said a final decision will be made on Harvin Saturday, Nov. 16. Carroll is unlikely to use Harvin for kickoffs if he plays.
Huddle Up: Harvin will likely be on a snap count, so even though he has a great match-up against Minnesota, owners should probably leave Harvin on the bench until he has a game under his belt.

Posted: 11/15/2013 12:00am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 14, for the first time since having hip surgery Aug. 1. It's looking more likely that he'll make his season debut in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings, his former team. 'He's in and out of his breaks really quickly,' QB Russell Wilson said. 'He's just a great football player. You want to give him the ball as much as you can. On our offense, we have so many guys that we can use. You add Percy into the mix and he brings a whole other explosive mentality to our football team.'
Huddle Up: Again, Harvin may play, but don't expect a lot of PT right out of the gate. It wouldn't be a total shocker, though, if the Hawks try to get him a TD against his ex-team.

Posted: 11/11/2013 8:11pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll isn't ready to declare WR Percy Harvin (hip) a go for Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. 'He's going after it this week and we'll see how far we can take it,' Carroll said of Harvin. 'We'll call this Phase 3. We also have a chance to have all three (starting offensive linemen) back and Percy just adds to it.' Carroll said Harvin must practice every day this week in order to suit up this weekend.
Huddle Up: Being activated was only one step for Harvin, and his fantasy owners anxious to get him in the lineup will have to monitor practice reports coming out of the Northwest this week. Even if he does play Sunday, though, expect a limited role for the wideout right out of the gate.

Posted: 11/11/2013 5:39pm et
The Seattle Seahawks have activated WR Percy Harvin (hip) from the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Don't get too excited—he could be limited in his first game action of the season—but he does have a nice matchup, and it's against the Vikings to boot. Revenge is a dish best served in Week 11 of the 2013 season?

Posted: 11/6/2013 5:00pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) had a great workout Wednesday, Nov. 6, but he won't practice with the team. Head coach Pete Carroll said Harvin is in Phase 2 of his rehab.
Huddle Up: It seems Harvin might not be back just yet. Monitor his status throughout the week.

Posted: 11/1/2013 8:29pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) underwent an MRI this week but it did not show any problems. Carroll said Harvin was sore from the practices last week.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks are still hoping Harvin can return in the next couple of weeks. Fantasy owners should hang onto him for the stretch run.

Posted: 11/1/2013 1:55pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that WR Percy Harvin (hip) will not play in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 'Percy won't play this week,' Carroll said. 'He's getting close, but not close enough.' The team has two weeks to activate Harvin from the Physically Unable to Perform list. WR Jermaine Kearse will start this weekend.
Huddle Up: At 7-1, the Seahawks have no need to rush Harvin back into actio. Meanwhile, his fantasy owners have waited this long, so what's another week or 2?

Posted: 10/29/2013 7:39pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll labeled WR Percy Harvin (hip) 'day-to-day,' and the team is unsure if he can make his debut in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: With Sidney Rice reportedly out for the season with a torn ACL, the 'Hawks could use Harvin more than ever. The rehabbing wideout, however, had a minor setback this past week when his surgically-repaired hip flared up in workouts, but indications still point toward a return in the next week or so.

Posted: 10/26/2013 5:05pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) won't play in Week 8.
Huddle Up: There were reports that Harvin could return this week but that would have been a best-case scenario. Still, it's looking like Harvin will back in the Seahawks' lineup some time in the next couple of weeks.

Posted: 10/24/2013 11:38am et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) has to have a normal week of practice in order to have a shot at playing in Week 8. "He's got to get through normal days of practice and we'll see how he handles it," Carroll said. "With the thought we've been going with all along is to take the conservative approach and make sure our guys are healthy and so we're going to continue to do that. We've waited this long to get him here; to this point. So we'll just continue to take our time and see how he goes. The workload will increase, as we go through the week and next week and all that and we'll just see what happens."
Huddle Up: It was easy to get excited about Harvin's return to practice, but the Seahawks have no need to rush him back to the lineup so it could be an excruciating wait for those who have stashed Harvin on their fantasy rosters. So close, yet so far away.

Posted: 10/23/2013 1:29pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 22, and is itching for his return to the field. 'I want to play as soon as possible,' Harvin said. 'But we're trying to be smart about it and we have a plan in place. I know one pace, and that's full stride, so it's been tough. At the same time, I have to take progressions to not have any setbacks and hurt the team any further.' Harvin said his hip is feeling great and he has no issues with it at all. Head coach Pete Carroll plans to be cautious with Harvin, and they want him to get through a full week of full practices before they'll be comfortable letting him play.
Huddle Up: He could be back this week, but Rob Gronkowski taught us to temper expectations. Play it so that Harvin is a pleasant surprise for your roster if he does play.

Posted: 10/22/2013 11:44pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip), who returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 22, could return to play in Week 8 against the St. Louis Rams Monday, Oct. 28, according to a league source. Whether he plays will depend on how his hip responds to practice this week. The team has three weeks to let him practice without activating him to the active roster.
Huddle Up: The guy is only a few months removed from hip surgery, so the best guess remains later rather than sooner for his return, but who knows, Harvin could have picked up some of Adrian Peterson's remarkable recuperative powers during his time in Minnesota.

Posted: 10/21/2013 11:12pm et
The Seattle Seahawks plan to take a cautious approach with WR Percy Harvin (hip), who will return to practice this week. The team will now have three weeks to decide whether to take him off the Physically Unable to Perform list and add him to the active roster. Head coach Pete Carroll does not want to bring him back until he's 100 percent ready to play.
Huddle Up: Harvin reportedly looks good but look for the Seahawks to use all 3 allotted weeks to give their prize offseason acquisition a full evaluation.

Posted: 10/17/2013 1:39pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) is scheduled to return to practice next week and should play sooner, rather than later.
Huddle Up: If you haven't already made a preemptive strike on your league's waiver wire, it's likely too late.

Posted: 10/11/2013 11:25am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin began running last week and has returned to Seattle to continue his rehab. The team doesn't expect him to be ready to play in Week 7, when he's eligible to come off the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: The good news is that Harvin's return in Week 7 is even an option, as initial reports placed his return closer to mid-November.

Posted: 9/9/2013 9:59am et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin has wowed his surgeon with his recovery to this point, and is ahead of schedule in the process. The team is hoping for a December return, but he could return sooner if he continues to make progress at his current pace.
Huddle Up: Earlier talk of Week 7 still seems aggressive, but it now looks like the Seahawks will have Harvin back for their playoff push--perhaps even in time for Harvin to be a contributor in the fantasy playoffs as well.

Posted: 8/27/2013 8:15pm et
Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip surgery) was placed on the Physically Unable To Perform List on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
Huddle Up: It's a bit of a surprise that it wasn't the IR/Designated to Return list. This means Harvin will be eligible to return after Week 6, but no one -- aside from Harvin himself -- expects the WR to be able to play until late in the season, if at all this year.

Posted: 8/16/2013 8:08pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team does not have a timetable for WR Percy Harvin's (hip) return but did say the surgeon was encouraged with how the hip was responding days after the surgery. 'We're hopeful, whatever that means. We won't know, it's going to take a good month before we can figure if he's even going to have a chance to come roaring back out of it, but it looks like all of the signs are very good. So we'll see what that means, but we're not putting any weeks on it. We don't know,' Carroll said.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks are hoping Harvin can return at some point this season but that would likely be some time after Thanksgiving at the earliest. It will be difficult for fantasy owners to burn a roster spot on Harvin unless your league has a couple of IR designations where you can use one to stash him.

Posted: 8/1/2013 5:27pm et
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) underwent successful hip surgery Thursday, Aug. 1, and hopes Harvin will be able to return at some point this season. Harvin will rehab in New York for a few weeks before returning to Seattle to continue his recovery. The injury could mean a bigger role for WR Golden Tate, and he could end up being a kickoff return option. RB Christine Michael could also be asked to return kicks in Harvin's absence.
Huddle Up: Whatever the timetable, count on it being months, not weeks, and in the meantime fantasy GMs need to go back and focus on QB Russell Wilson and the health of his 2012 cast of pass-catchers as that will be what Seattle has to work with in Harvin's absence.

Posted: 7/31/2013 12:50pm et
Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin will go on the Physically Unable to Perform list and can return to practice between Week 6 and Week 11. He'd have to be activated by Week 14 or go on Injured Reserve. The team is shooting for a Week 13 return.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks and Harvin both remain optimistic that he won't miss the entire season because of his hip injury, and the PUP list gives them a little more flexibility with regards to when he can come back.

Posted: 7/31/2013 10:41am et
The Seattle Seahawks hope to get WR Percy Harvin back for the Dec. 2 game on Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints. The earliest Harvin can go on Injured Reserve (designated to return) is Sept. 3. He has to be out for eight weeks. He can begin practicing six weeks after Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: With Harvin undergoing surgery on his hip, the Seahawks remain hopeful that he'll be able to come back before the end of the regular season. It would be tough to keep a roster spot for essentially the entire fantasy regular season in hopes of Harvin returning for your playoffs, but if your league's roster size is big enough it's not out of the question.

Posted: 7/31/2013 12:27am et
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin posted on his official Twitter account Tuesday, July 30, that he requires surgery for his hip. The estimated recovery time is three to four months, according to a source close to Harvin. He could still end up on short-term Injured Reserve, and return at some point this season.
Huddle Up: Fears have been realized in the Northwest, leaving the 'Hawks without their top offseason acquisition for much of 2013 and leaving fantasy GMs without one of the game's most versatile and productive wideouts for most -- if not all -- fantasy seasons.
