Earlier today, Percy Harvin tweeted, “I’m making serious progress ... keep an eye on Week 7” — which would be the first game that he is eligible to return. It was a good sign when Harvin was placed on the physically unable to perform list rather than short-term injured reserve to begin with, and this tweet is all the more encouraging for Seahawks fans.

Pete Carroll reiterated Wednesday that they don’t have a timeline for Harvin to return to the field just yet, but he also admitted that Harvin’s rehab has been going well so far. Barring any setbacks over the next month and a half, we could see Harvin much earlier than originally expected.

While the reports so far have been positive, I wouldn’t be surprised if the dynamic wideout didn’t return until Week 9 or 10. In the past, Harvin has shown that his injuries can linger, and hip surgery isn’t something to rush back from. No matter how soon he gets back on the field, he will definitely be eased back into things, and probably won’t be fully integrated into the offense until a couple weeks after his return.

Another piece of encouraging news for Seattle’s offense was confirmed on Wednesday, as Sidney Rice — who suddenly needed a knee procedure early on in camp — will be ready to go for this week’s game.
