Harvin had surgery to repair a torn hip labrum in August. He spent most of the last two months in New York, rehabbing the injury. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Harvin resumed running last week and the team would have a better timeline for his return once he continues his rehab in Seattle, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN.
Although Seattle still isn't sure when Harvin will be able to return, the progress he's made indicates that he could return sooner rather than later, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. Harvin was placed on the physically unable to perform list prior to the start of the season and is eligible to return as soon as Week 7. Harvin can return to practice next week and Seattle would have 21 days to activate him to the active roster.
The initial estimates projected Harvin to return at the end of November, but based on the progress he's made, it appears Seattle will get its top offseason acquisition back even sooner. Seattle hosts Minnesota on Nov. 17 and Harvin may be healthy enough to play against his former team.
