Super Bowl prep: Harvin back at practice for Seahawks


Former Vikings and current Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin returned to practice today, as head coach Pete Carroll hinted at earlier in the week.

Harvin suffered a concussion in the Seahawks first playoff game against the New Orleans Saints, and missed their win over San Francisco in the NFC Championship game Sunday.

After undergoing offseason hip surgery, Harvin has been able to take part in just two of Seattle's 18 games this year, and Seattle lost another former Viking receiver earlier this season as well, Sidney Rice.

Harvin will still have to pass the NFL's concussion protocol in order to play in the big game 11 days from now.

Even without the two former Minnesota wideouts, Seattle's receiver corp has been impressive in the postseason, so getting Harvin back would just be icing on the Super Bowl cake for the Seahawks.
