Wide receiver Percy Harvin is eligible to come off the physically unable to perform list beginning next week.

However don’t expect him to appear in games just yet for the Seattle Seahawks.

Harvin has been sidelined since the start of training camp for Seattle and underwent surgery to repair his injured hip on August 1. His recovery has appeared to be ahead of schedule. Harvin is back to running already and returned to Seattle this week to continue his rehab with the team.

Harvin has been bullish on the thought he could return in time for Seattle’s matchup with the Arizona Cardinals next week but head coach Pete Carroll said that may be a little too optimistic.
