The Seahawks are going to get the weapon back that they hardly need.

The team announced that wide receiver Percy Harvin (hip) was probable for Sunday’s game. That means it’s a virtual certainty that he’ll play against his old team, the Vikings.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Harvin “has a chance” to play. We can only hope Carroll didn’t sprain anything trying to keep a straight face while he said it.

While they’ll doubtless want to ease Harvin back in after his preseason hip surgery, they’re probably as eager to see him as he is to see the team that traded him rather than giving him a contract extension.
