The health of Harvin

Percy Harvin is an intriguing athlete, and he always has been. In last year’s Super Bowl, Harvin provided one of the more electric kickoff returns of the entire year. However, that was after a long season of injuries and frustration.

This season Harvin is healthy…for now. Will that continue?

Harvin’s health is going to be a story all season long. His talent is obvious, and if he can stay on the field he could be a dynamic weapon for a suddenly potent Seahawks offense.

The reality of the NFL is that there isn’t really a way to protect a player from injury. Defensive players are going to go right after Harvin and do their best to remove him from the equation.

A healthy Harvin? Here’s hoping.
