Seahawks WR Percy Harvin doing 'extremely well' in his recovery from hip surgery

In case Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin @Percy_Harvin still has his sights set on a Week 7 return to the field, I'm sure it pleases him to know he is recovering "extremely well" from his August hip surgery. Those are the words a league source used with Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio to describe Harvin's progress. However, as Florio puts it, "that doesn't mean we'll see [Harvin] in Week 7, or soon thereafter.
"The challenge for (head coach Pete) Carroll and G.M. John Schneider will be to determine the right time to bring Harvin back. If the team, which could go to 4-0 for the first time in franchise history on Sunday, continues to thrive without Harvin, the powers-that-be may be inclined to unleash him, Kraken-style, as late as possible, with an eye toward getting maximum pop in the postseason."

Fantasy Analysis:

Thus, perhaps Harvin's return date depends somewhat on the Seahawks' success over the next handful of weeks. If they continue to roll over the competition, we might not see Harvin until Week 10 or 11. But if the offense struggles mightily and costs the team some games, maybe he'll play before then. But the most important factor is that Harvin plays only when he's completely healed and ready. Harvin may want to return when he's first eligible; I personally don't think we will see him play until November.

I just picked him up on sunday. Hopefully he's back soon, cuz my WR3 (Tavon Austin & Denarious Moore) are not cutting it.

I dropped Ahmad Bradshaw and stashed him away. Harvin might be very effective when he comes back so my fingers are crossed my other wide outs perform until then.

Percy Harvin will miss at least one more game, but the Seahawks wide receiver returned to the team and could be nearing a return to the field.
