The loss of Percy Harvin to a torn labrum before he ever played a snap for the Seahawks was a big one though it wasn't necessarily a season-wrecking one. After all Seahawks football is defense + Marshawn Lynch. Plus Percy was likely going to come back eventually. But could his return be even sooner than expected? Harvin threw a wrinkle everyone's way on Wednesday afternoon when he tweeted that he's "making serious progress" and for people to "keep an eye on Week 7." That doesn't even seem realistic honestly. Harvin was placed on the PUP list to start the season so at bare minimum he's going to miss the first six weeks of the season. So yes it's possible that Harvin's back by Week 7. But the realistic timeline for his return was some time in November with maybe an outside worst-case idea of Harvin simply coming back after the Seahawks Week 12 bye against the Saints in Week 13.
