Ex-Viking Percy Harvin expected to play in Super Bowl

He's been sidelined by injuries for the vast majority of the season, but ex-Viking wide receiver Percy Harvin will likely get a chance to play on the NFL's biggest stage when the Seahawks and Broncos battle in the Super Bowl on Sunday.

According to the Seattle Times, Harvin has been cleared to play. He suffered a concussion on a violent hit by a Saints defensive back in the Divisional Round of the NFC playoffs.

“It was unfortunate some of the hits that were caused in the game,” Harvin said, “but I didn’t think they were targeting me.”

Prior to taking the shot to his head against the Saints, Harvin missed most of the season recovering from offseason hip surgery. He says his hip is feeling "pretty good" now.

“I really don’t know if I was the exact same I was in Minnesota (when he was 100 percent),” Harvin said. “I felt pretty good, good enough to play in a football game. I’ll leave it at that.”

Harvin's return to the field will add another dimension to an already talented Seattle offense, and fellow wide receiver Golden Tate is excited for Harvin.

"He’s had some tough breaks this year, but at the end of the day he’s had a positive attitude, staying positive," Tate said, via the Star Tribune. "He’s ready to go. I’m excited to have him back on the field. He brings another whole dimension to this offense and to special teams."

Harvin was traded to the Seahawks from the Vikings following the 2012 season.
