Seahawks star has chance of shock Superbowl return

Published Add your comment

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin is back in contention for a sensational Superbowl return against the Denver Broncos next Sunday as he continues to battle back from a succession of injuries, according to FoxSports.

Harvin sat out last weekend's NFC championship game with concussion and missed all but one game of the regular season following hip surgery, but will get a shot at salvation on the grandest stage of them all if he continues to respond to treatment.

The 25-year-old was an expensive free-agent acquisition by the Seahawks last summer but didn't make his debut for Seattle until week 11, failing to settle due to that persistent hip complaint.

Seahawks management have stayed patient with the ex-Vikings mainstay and added him back to the rotation during the playoffs, a spell that proved all too brief thanks to concussion suffered during their opening divisional-round win.

Seattle have marched to Superbowl XLVIII without Harvin but are prepared to offer him game-time on February 2nd in New Jersey, with concussion symptoms now described as "mild" likely to subside in the two-week window until the Seahawks and Denver contest this season's championship game.
