Percy Harvin was a full participant in practice for the second time in consecutive days on Thursday, which is a great sign as he prepares to play in Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2.
Harvin was recovering from a concussion suffered on Jan. 11 in the NFC Divisional playoff game and has not played in a game since.
That was the first time he had played since Nov. 17, which was the first (and only) time he played in the regular season.
But Harvin has been humbled by the experience. He knows that he does not have to win the big game all by himself.
“I’m not trying to save any season,” Harvin said Thursday in a press conference. “I’m trying to go out there and win a Super Bowl.”
Harvin’s presence would give the Seahawks offense a big advantage against the Broncos defense, and not just because he is capable of making big plays.
Because of how little Harvin has played this season, there is very little film available for the Broncos to study regarding Harvin’s role on the Seahawks offense. That means he could make a big play at any time.
Maybe everything does happen for a reason.
Regardless, Harvin has no regrets as to how often he has been hurt this season.
“I wouldn’t take anything back that’s happened this year,” he said via Joshua Mayers of The Seattle Times. “It’s made me a stronger person.”
Harvin has worked through a hip injury that he suffered in training camp and the concussion that he received on Jan. 11. He only played in one game this regular season, a career low.
He only played in nine games in 2012, also because of injuries.
