Seattle Seahawks have been boosted by news of the imminent return of Percy Harvin, who has set his sights on a playoff comeback for Pete Carroll's side, reports ESPN.
The 25-year-old wide receiver has not featured for the Washington-based franchise since making his debut against former employers Minnesota Vikings on November 17.
Harvin has been plagued by a long-standing hip problem, after first going under the knife on August 1. He aggravated that injury against the Vikings and has not played since, but is hopeful of being fit for the Seahawks' playoff clash on January 11.
"Percy's done a tremendous job of keeping his head up and focusing on what he can control," said Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. "We want him at 100 percent. If he is, man, he's something else.
"He can make a lot of plays for us and do a lot of special things. He's like a racehorse out there when you see him run.
"He's done everything he can do to keep his legs ready to go and his lungs ready to go."
Wilson added that the entire Seahawks roster has been boosted by Harvin's return to practice, and all the players will have extra confidence going into their second-round playoff match.
"It just adds another element to our game," the 25-year-old enthused. "He's one of the most dynamic players in the National Football League.
"To get him out there, you can feel his effect and sense his ability. He has a great knack for the game and he's very physical. I'm really happy for him and I hope he can play."
The Seahawks have a first-round bye in the playoffs, after finishing top of the NFC Western Division, ahead of the San Francisco 49ers with 13-3.
