Pete Carroll expects Percy Harvin to play in Super Bowl

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

After an injury-plagued season, Harvin will reportedly get a chance to make an impact in the title game.

After arriving in Seattle as a big-name free agent acquisition surrounded with hype and expectations, constant injury issues have kept Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin sidelined for all but a handful of plays this season. However, it seems as though he may be able to contribute in the most important game of the season.

When asked whether Harvin would be available for the Super Bowl, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said "he should be fine," according to ESPN's Liz Mathews.

Harvin is expected to play in Super Bowl XLVIII after sitting out the NFC Championship with a concussion. Harvin, who missed all but one game during the regular season following summer hip surgery, suffered a concussion during the Seahawks' opening playoff win in the Divisional round.

Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that Harvin's symptoms are "mild" and that the team has been cautious in bringing him back. With a two-week window between the conference championships and the Feb. 2 title game, he'll have additional time to complete his recovery.

Harvin made his belated Seahawks debut in Week 11 against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. He touched the ball just twice that day and suffered a setback to his surgically repaired hip.

He returned in Seattle's first playoff win over the New Orleans Saints and saw heavier usage. He was forced out of that game twice, the second time for good after slamming his head to the turf while taking a hard hit in the end zone.
