Harvin hungry for more work

The day after his first game in more than a calendar year, Percy Harvin says he felt great. Granted he played only 21 snaps against Seattle a little over two weeks ago, but he was encouraged by the way his body responded to the most intense work it’s seen in a year. That’s why he’s eager to get more work on the field and contribute more on offense today.

“From what I’m hearing, I think I’m going to be full-go,” said Harvin. “How many plays? I don’t know yet. I definitely practiced the whole time this week. Got a lot more reps and a lot of reps with the [first team]. So I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing and keep preparing myself. When game time comes, I’ll let the coaches handle that part.”

Harvin is expected to start opposite Robert Woods at receiver. And though his workload is expected to increase appreciably from 21 snaps at Seattle, to expect 60-70 snaps might be a bit premature.

“He’s going to get some opportunities,” said offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn. “He’ll start, but he’ll probably still be in a limited role because you can’t sit out a year and come back and jump in in two weeks and I think he saw that last week. But he’s done some good things in practice and I’m looking forward to see him make some plays.”
