The Seattle Seahawks had to deactivate Percy Harvin for their Monday Night Football contest against the New Orleans Saints, but it looks like he has a chance of getting back for Sunday's game with the 49ers. Harvin's hip was acting up over the weekend, and led to a late downgrade. Pete Carroll was on the radio earlier today, and had a chance to discuss Harvin's status:

The Seahawks looked great on Monday without Harvin, but I'm pretty sure they would not turn down the opportunity to have Harvin available. Based on Carroll's comments, we can expect Harvin to be a DNP when Wednesday practice reports come out. My guess is he will be limited on Thursday, with Friday up in the air depending on how he feels after Thursday's workout. Harvin is likely going to end up a game-time decision for the Seahawks.

Harvin made his Seahawks debut three weeks ago against the Minnesota Vikings. He had a reception for 17 yards and a kick return for 58 yards. The Seahawks had a bye after that game, so I'm not sure how much we can take from Carroll saying it "just took a while to bounce back" from a workload of 21 snaps (including his kick return).

If I had to make a prediction, it would be that Harvin does not play. The procedure could have been relatively simple, but none of this bodes well for his short term future. He apparently feels good this morning, but I would be have been surprised if Carroll had said he wasn't feeling good. He wants the 49ers prepping for Harvin. If Harvin doesn't play, that's time they haven't used elsewhere. That might not necessarily make or break this game, but these teams are looking for every edge they can fine.
