By all accounts Percy Harvin is ahead of schedule in his return from his hip injury. Head coach Pete Carroll said on Monday that he is “getting close.” Now we know the plan is to get him back on the practice field next week:

The return of Harvin is going to be one of the more interesting storylines for the second half of the season. The team is 5-1 and in first place right now but the passing game has been really average. Getting their x factor back could go a long way towards opening things up for everyone and pushing them on a Super Bowl run.
