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.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Cecil Shorts might be ready to play against Jacksonville in Week 6.
Both Shorts and Nate Washington missed Thursday's game, making way for Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery. While strong caught two TDs, Mumphery was a non-factor. Strong earned himself more playing time in the coming weeks, possibly coming at Shorts' expense, though it could come at Washington's as coach Bill O'Brien said that Shorts had a better chance of playing against Jacksonville than Washington does.
