Carroll on Harvin: "Percy is the best he's been. He had another excellent day. He's not ready to play this week..."— Curtis Crabtree (@Curtis_Crabtree) November 8, 2013

Danny O'Neil of MyNorthWest.com provides a statement from Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll discussing Percy Harvin status:
Receiver Percy Harvin is getting closer to returning, according to Carroll, but not ready just yet to practice full speed after recovering from hip surgery. He was held out of practice Wednesday, though he did work out before the team's walk-through.
"His hip, he doesn't have discomfort at all," Carroll said. "He ran today and ran well, felt really good about it and would love to practice today. We're just going to the next day. We're just going to make sure that we're doing it right. We want to see how this day impacted how he feels tomorrow. So we're just trying to work together to get that done."
Seattle has until next week to activate Harvin to the 53-man roster, but when the Seahawks expect him to make his debut remains uncertain.
"When we really feel secure and solid and he feels great, then we'll bust him out," Carroll said.

Todd Dybas of The Seattle News Tribune has the latest from head coach Pete Carroll on Harvin:
(On Harvin’s performance at practice today…) “Well Percy [Harvin] got started today. Limited involvement in practice today, but he got out there running around. He looked good. He looks quick and ready to take the next step, which is the next time we come back on Thursday. We’re going to do it one day at a time.”
(On Percy Harvin playing on Monday…) “Like I’m saying, we’re going to go one day at a time. This will be one of those things that I’ll probably say the same thing every time you ask me. So you can keep asking me if you want.”
NBC Sports' Mike Florio provides a statement from Percy Harvin discussing his injury and potential return:
“It’s been a long ride,” Harvin told reporters on Tuesday. ”I haven’t played football since Week Seven of last season, and just dealing with the trades, dealing with the injury that ended the season, and then coming here and having another injury. So it’s been tough man, I have a lot of things built up in me that I’m just ready to unleash on the field.
“I’m going to take my time with it, but when it’s time to explode I will.”
“I had a bone that was blocking me from getting my full range of motion,” Harvin said. ”Just like any labrum in your shoulder there was just a lot of pain, certain movements would hurt real bad, and it just got to the point where it was getting real tough to pick up my leg. I just had to get it done, I’m glad I got it done. . . . It was bothering me sleeping, running, just relaxing; it was getting real tough so we knew we had to get something done. It just came at a funny time, but it all worked out.”
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports Percy Harvin has made great progress and has a chance to play in Week 8:
Should Harvin display the necessary progress in practice, and should he, the team’s doctors and the experts who are overseeing his rehab and recovery in New York share a belief he was ready to play, then no one is ruling out he could take the field in Week 8.
“I can’t put my hand on a Bible as we speak and say, ‘Yeah, he’s going to play next week',” said one source. “But there’s certainly a chance.”
“Everybody has to be in agreement on it,” said a team source. “It’s not Percy vs. the team. It’s nothing like that. But if everybody feels good about it and the doctors think he is ready, then it’s possible he plays.”
UPDATE: Thursday, Oct. 17
