Friday practice to tell more on Harvin status

Thursday was Percy Harvin’s first practice with the Bills. By all accounts things went well. The coaching staff didn’t overwork him on purpose as he was eased back into football related activities following a long layoff. Though he’s in shape, he’s not in football shape. That is what makes him a bit of a question mark for Monday’s game.

“I’m not sure right now,” said Harvin of playing Monday night in Seattle. “That’s coach’s decision. We are just going to see how we keep going on this week. A heavier load should be [coming] (today), so I’ll have a better feel for it.”

It’s clear that both Harvin and the athletic training staff want to take a slow and steady approach in getting Harvin’s body literally up to the speed of the NFL game, which is hard to replicate no matter what type of training one does on their own.

“I want to be smart with my body,” said Harvin. “The training staff, the coaches and myself – we’re all on the same page, so the thing is just to start up and just gradually keep getting better.”
