The Seattle Seahawks are expecting one of the NFL’s top playmakers, Percy Harvin, to be ready to go for Super Bowl XLVIII.
Head coach Pete Carroll told 710-AM in Seattle on Monday that Harvin should be suiting up for the grand finale against the Denver Broncos.
“We’re kind of counting on him to be ready and he should be,” Carroll said of Harvin’s chances of playing in the Super Bowl. “What do I know? I’ve got to check for the doctors, but that’s kind of what I’m hoping.”
While doctors have yet to clear Harvin, Carroll believes that the star receiver is in good shape to hit the field again.
“He has a very good chance to practice based on how he was on the weekend,” Carroll said. “He was in pretty good shape on the weekend.”
Harvin suffered a concussion in the divisional playoff round against the New Orleans Saints, and sat out Seattle’s NFC Championship Game against San Francisco. When he’s not injured, Harvin has the ability to change a game every time he touches the ball. Having him on the field against the Broncos could prove the difference in the franchise hoisting its first Lombardi Trophy.
