The Seahawks have gotten pretty far without him, but it appears they’re going to get a boost at wide receiver this week with Percy Harvin returning.

According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, Harvin just replied “absolutely” when asked if he planned to play this week against the Saints, indicating no setbacks with his surgically repaired hip.

All week, the signs have pointed in a positive direction for Harvin to return to play in the Divisional Round, after minimal work in the regular season.

“This team is set,” Harvin said. “I’m just looking forward to jumping on the bus and enjoying the ride.”

Harvin played in one game, catching one pass for 17 yards against the Vikings in November.

But if he can even provide a decoy for the Seahawks, that’s an advantage for a team that earned the top seed in the NFC playoffs without their biggest offseason acquisition.
