Carroll notes and quotes following Tuesday practice: Harvin “looks quick and ready to take the next step”

Here are some notes and quotes from Seattle coach Pete Carroll following today’s practice:

— On Percy Harvin:  “Percy got started today. Limited involvement in practice but he was out there running around. He looked good. He looks quick and ready to take the next step, which is the next time we come back on Thursday. One day at a time.”

— On when Harvin might return: “We’re going to go one day at a time. This will be one of those things where I’ll probably say thing every time you ask me, so you can keep asking if you want.”

— On Derrick Coleman: “He’s got a hamstring that we don’t know how long it will take. It could be anywhere from four to six weeks, although he’s thinking he’s going to get back way sooner than that. He’s had a history of really quick healing, so we’re going to see if we can pull it off again.”

— On if he always had in mind maybe bringing Michael Robinson back: “We told Mike when he left that we had that in mind going back in the season. We’d see how we’d progressed, and fortunately we have a chance to get a guy back we really think a lot of and he’s really done a lot of things of. He gives us a chance to have continuity right off the bat. Very fortunate.”

— On what Harvin has to do before getting out there: “He’s got to get through normal days of practice and see how he handles it. The thought we’ve been going with all along is take the conservative approach and make sure our guys are healthy and we’re going to continue to do that. We’ve waited that long to get him here to this point, so we’ll just continue to take our time and see how he goes. The workload will progress and increase as we go through the week and next week.”

— On Robinson being healthy: “He had an extensive physical, which was good, and he’s been working out all along and maintaining his conditioning. His weight is good and all that. We’re pleased he made it through today. We could see him run around a little bit. He had a little extra sweat going today for the first time, but we’re counting on him playing for us this week.”

— On Golden Tate:  “He’s a little sore from the game. He started practice and didn’t finish out there. His shoulder is still shore, his neck and shoulder area where he got popped pretty good. We’ll have to wait and see what that means. He couldn’t finish practice today.”

— On Tate’s foot: “His foot’s fine.”

— On Bobby Wagner: “We’re going to wait and see on Thursday what he can do. He’s made great progress and surprised the trainers, but we won’t know until we get to Thursday.”

— On Jeron Johnson: “He’s not practicing.”

— On Russsell Okung: “Russell has a process here of four weeks that he’s got to get through. After those two weeks he’ll have a chance to practice with us and after that, which is still four weeks from now, he’ll have a chance to return. He’s doing really well. He’s working out, doing the rehab stuff, but he can’t get on the practice field for a bit. We’re real encouraged he’ll make it back after that time, but it still seems like a really long time. We’ll be happy to get him back when we get him.”

—- On practice in two weeks for Okung: “I think that’s the case.”

— On Breno Giacomini: “He’s in the process of recovering too. We don’t have a real clear timeline on that one. We had hoped he’d make it back a little sooner than it looks like right now, but as a big man it’s taken him some time to get right. I can’t tell ya. It’s going to take him a couple weeks after we get him on the practice field, and he’s not ready for that yet.”
