Percy Harvin added to 53-man roster
The Seahawks have traveled to San Diego to take on the Chargers in their third preseason game of the year, a game that will see the starters get the most playing time of the preseason.
Seahawks fans came out in droves on Saturday in San Diego.
It was family day here at the VMAC as the Seahawks had their last practice of the week before heading to San Diego tomorrow for a preaseon matchup against the Chargers on Saturday.
Percy Harvin took the next step toward playing his first game for the Seahawks on Monday when he was added to the 53-man roster.
Harvin, who was acquired in a March trade with the Minnesota Vikings, had hip surgery on Aug. 1 and has been on the physically unable to perform list. Whether the wide receiver/kickoff returner/runner plays in Sunday’s game against his old team at CenturyLink Field remains to be seen. His last game action came last Nov. 4, when he was injured in the Vikings’ 30-20 loss to the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.
To clear a roster spot for Harvin, rookie defensive lineman Michael Brooks was released. Brooks was signed off the practice squad Saturday and had one tackle in Sunday’s 33-10 victory over the Falcons in Atlanta.
Harvin practiced on a limited basis twice in the week leading up to the Oct. 28 “Monday Night Football” game against the Rams in the St. Louis. But the past two weeks, his activity has been limited to rehab work.
