It’s been just over a year since Percy Harvin’s last game, but the 25 year old Seahawks receiver says he is “absolutely planning to play Sunday.” Much has changed since Harvin last suited up; most notably, his jersey. The last game he played was in Minnesota purple going against Seattle blue. Now, in his 2013 debut, he will be on the other side of the field playing with the Hawks playing against his old Vikings teammates.
Harvin was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform on November 11th after undergoing hip surgery in August. This week was the deadline for the Seahawks to activate their newly acquired weapon if they wanted to use him in 2013.
Despite not playing all season, it’s safe to say that the Vikings are wary of going against their former 2009 rookie of the year. Harvin was dangerous at every position he played including wide receiver, punt/kick returner and even running back. In a truncated 2012 season, Harvin brought in 62 receptions for 677 yards and 3 TDs.
For his career, Harvin averages 11.8 yards per catch, on 280 receptions, and has scored 20 touchdowns. The dynamic playmaker has struggled with injuries, including severe migraines, throughout his 5 years in the NFL, but is still a constant big-play threat.
There is no denying that he and his equally athletic quarterback, Russell Wilson are a duo that will scare a lot of teams now that Harvin is healthy and ready to play.
