Percy Harvin totaled exactly 100 yards from scrimmage Thursday night, catching seven passes on seven targets for 59 yards and rushing for 41 yards on four carries.

As expected, Harvin led all Seattle receivers in targets. And, he made good them, converting every single one of them. The question with Harvin is how much the "conservative" Seattle offense will choose to use their most dangerous weapon. If tonight is any indication, they plan on getting him the ball as much as possible. He's a strong WR2 in my book.

Percy Harvin excused from second consecutive Seahawks practice for what coach Pete Carroll says is a "personal" issue. 

Harvin joins the latest list of players excused from camp for personal reasons. It is unclear as to how long he'll be out or what the issue might be, but he'll be out there for Week1, so draft accordingly.

WR Doug Baldwin and WR Percy Harvin had excused absences for Tuesday's practice.

Fantasy Owners can breathe a sigh of relief that the had an esxcused absence from practice and did not miss practice due to injury. Want nothing to do with Percy Harvin in fantasy leagues as he always gets hurt and his always drafted way too high in drafts. Dougie B is nothing special and is too inconsistent to be relied on in fantasy.

Percy Harvin considers himself as healthy as he's been since his high school days.

With the departure of Golden Tate and the retirement of Sidney Rice the Seahawks will need a healthy Percy Harvin to carry their passing attack. Harvin missed all but one game during the regular season for the Seahawks last year but returned a kick for a touchdown in the Super Bowl victory over the Broncos.

Percy Harvin said after practice Wednesday that he feels as healthy as he has since high school.

Uh oh. Is that a "best shape of my life" cliche we hear? Granted, Harvin's time lapse from high school to present day may be a little smaller than some of ours, but the 26-year old who has dealt with a variety of injuries and chronic migraines simply couldn't be as healthy as he was as an 18-year old in high school. He's got moxie though. We'll give him that. Continue to view Harvin as a potential WR1, but given the injury history and the offensive scheme in Seattle, you're better off treating him as a WR2 instead.

Update: Coach Pete Carroll said Percy Harvin got his foot stepped on during practice, but is OK.  

False alarm, people. Nothing to worry about. Of course, this is the kind of panic and overreaction you'll be dealing with all season long if you become a Harvin owner. Great upside, but the risk is big.

Percy Harvin walks to locker room Tuesday with a slight limp.

Please tell me there is not one surprised by this headline? It's Percy Harvin, come on people. The Seahawks were pleased to see him healthy in camp, and kept the training wheels on him through the early stages of camp but that was not enough. There is no timetable or immediate work on his condition right now.

Percy Harvin is in full pads Sunday after light duty Saturday.

One of the heroes of Super Bowl XLVIII, Percy Harvin is being routinely rested, according to Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll. Injury concerns continue to dog Harvin's reputation as a big-time contributor. It appears that the Seahawks are doing what they can to give Harvin his best chance at dodging the injury bug this season.

Percy Harvin, who is expected to be the team's main kick returner, said he is also open to returning punts this year.

There's really no denying the talent when it comes to Harvin and he probably gives the Seahawks the best chance to win the field position battle as their return man both in kickoff and punts. However, injuries have been so prevalent in his career, whether it's the hip surgery or even just the rash of migraines he's been known to experience, that you have to think putting him in harm's way even more as a return guy is going to negatively affect his ability to stay on the field as a receiver. We're not saying he can;t do it all, but there's a tremendous risk involved here. A full season as the Seahawks' No. 1 receiver should make him a highly-sought after commodity and he's got the potential to deliver on every bit of that promise. You just have to be prepared for the possibility of losing him for a few weeks during the year. It might not happen but you still have to factor that possibility in when you draft.

Seahawks plan on resting Percy Harvin during training camp.

Well that makes sense. Harvin has a laundry list of injuries on his resume, so if it means sparing him some wear-and-tear by missing training camp, so be it. We already know that he can catch and run.
