Good news keeps getting better for the Seahawks and their special weapon, Percy Harvin.
On Wednesday, he practiced fully and was upgraded to “probable” on the official injury report for Saturday’s NFC Divisional playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.
It was the first time this season that Harvin was listed as a full-participant in practice. In Week 11, he was still on injured reserve and was therefore not on the practice report.
Even better, Russell Wilson likes what he sees:

The addition of Harvin would certainly help the passing game, which is 26th in the NFL by averaging just over 202 passing yards per game.
The Saints have the 2nd-best pass defense in the NFL (behind the Seahawks). They only give up 194.1 passing yards per game.
However, the last time Wilson faced the Saints, he torched them for 310 yards and three touchdowns on 22-for-30 passing.
Rookie tight end Luke Willson, who sprained his ankle in the regular season finale, was also upgraded to “probable” for Saturday’s game.
Pro Bowler Kam Chancellor did not practice on Wednesday because of a hip injury. He and K.J. Wright, who is recovering from foot surgery, were the only players who did not practice on Wednesday.
Wright is officially “out” of Saturday’s contest, but according to Terry Blount at ESPN.com, there was no indication that Chancellor will not play. As of now, he is listed as “questionable”.
