Seahawks activate Harvin

In an expected move, the Seahawks have called up Percy Harvin to the 53-man active roster today.

Seattle had to do that by Tuesday, per NFL rules, or he would not be able to be on the active roster this season.

Coach Pete Carroll said on Friday that Harvin had had his best week of workouts and was getting close to returning to the field.

But being put on the active roster doesn’t guarantee that he plays this weekend. Teams declare even players inactive each week and Carroll has said Seattle would have no issues carrying Harvin as an inactive player until he is ready physically.

Seattle cut rookie DT Michael Brooks to make room for Harvin on the roster. Brooks played 15 snaps in Sunday’s game in his first action. He can be re-signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
