Harvin took part in his fourth consecutive practice for Seattle since returning to the field during the team's bye last week. Harvin was listed as a full participant on the team's injury report. It was the first time he has been listed as a full participant since prior to his only game appearance this season against the Minnesota Vikings in November.
Harvin caught just one pass for 17 yards and returned a kickoff for 58 yards in his lone apperance for the Seahawks this season against the Vikings. Harvin missed the remaining five games of the regular season as he continued to battle issues with his surgically repaired hip.
Harvin was given the chance to get back on the practice field last week and appears to be continuing progress toward playing for Seattle against the Saints on Saturday afternoon.
S Kam Chancellor and LB K.J. Wright were the only two players that did not practice for Seattle on Wednesday.
Head coach Pete Carroll has said that Wright will not be able to play this week as he closes in on a return from a broken bone in his foot. Wright injured his foot on Dec. 8 at San Francisco and had surgery shortly thereafter. Carroll said Wright will run on Thursday with the thought he could play next week in the NFC Championship game if Seattle advances.
Chancellor has not been mentioned this week by Carroll as dealing with an injury. He was limited in practice prior to the 49ers game with a hip issue as well but was listed as probable and played in the game. He has played in every game for Seattle this season despite appearing on the injury report occasionally with minor issues.
In addition to Harvin, TE Luke Willson was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Willson suffered a high-ankle sprain in Seattle's regular season finale against the St. Louis Rams.
Willson being able to fully participate in practice just a week-and-a-half removed from a high-ankle sprain is pretty remarkable and also a strong indicator he will be available to play Saturday.
