The Seattle Seahawks are steamrolling teams right now, and they may have the luxury of holding their prized offseason acquisition, Percy Harvin, out a little longer while the good times roll.

Harvin recently flew to New York to continue his rehab, which a league source told Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk was a good sign for his recovery. Harvin tweeted a few weeks back to keep an eye on Week 7, which was surprising to many because his return was thought to be much later in the year.

“He’s back in New York rehabbing and we’re making sure that we really do everything just right,” coach Pete Carroll said during a recent press conference. “He was very positive about how he’s coming back. We want to make sure we do a great job and support it in every way. We’ve made a couple of choices to send him back and he’s doing great. Don’t know that that means in terms of a time line.”

The Seahawks are undefeated at 3-0, and if they can continue their win streak, they would have little reason to risk Harvin. The team may opt to intentionally hold him out a little longer to ensure that he’s fully rested and healthy for a potential late season and deep postseason run.
