Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told reporters wide receiver Percy Harvin will have his snap count limit removed after their Week 12 bye. Harvin caught one pass (just one target) for 17 yards in his return last week.The former Minnesota Vikings' receiver said he felt sore after last week's game in which he played 19-of-52 offensive snaps. He is also scheduled to be the team's primary kick returner.
Harvin can be as explosive as they come, but he probably won't be back to his old self until the postseason. Not the fantasy postseason, the actual NFL playoffs. Even if it is sooner than that, everybody knew the risk of holding him for this long or wasting a roster spot for him. For a power running team that still utilizes a traditional power formation on many downs (two RBs, one TE, two WRs), the Seahawks will have to get creative to keep him on the field. For those who need to make a push for the playoffs, you might be better off looking elsewhere for points.
