RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Pete Carroll told Percy Harvin that the Seattle Seahawks were considering placing him on injured reserve to open up a roster spot ahead of the postseason. Harvin’s response: “Coach I’m ready to play ball.”

That conversation less than two weeks ago was the start of a return that took another significant step on Thursday when Carroll announced Harvin would play on Saturday against New Orleans in an NFC divisional playoff game.

“We’re excited about him going and excited for him.  It’s been a long, long haul for a guy that’s such a great competitor and it means so much,” Carroll said. “For him to have the opportunity to join us now is really exciting, I know, for him and us, too.”

There will be no limitations on how Seattle can use its biggest offseason acquisition.
