Percy Harvin sets potential goal for return

The Seattle Seahawks could see their coveted free agent addition back on the field sooner than expected.

Receiver Percy Harvin tweeted that his rehab is going better than expected, which could be a good sign for the Seahawks' organization.

"What's goin 12th man just checkn in ...I'm making serious progress ...keep an eye on week 7...don't hang them 11's up.....we workn," Harvin wrote.

Based on the tweet, one can assume Harvin is hinting at a potential on-field return for Seattle's Week 7 game against Arizona, which will be played on a Thursday night. Or, he could be playing a game of cat-and-mouse, since that's the first week he's eligible to come off the reserve/PUP list.

Thing is, who's to doubt Harvin in that he could be back for Seattle's seventh game of the season after having offseason hip surgery that was initially expected to sideline him for the first 12 or 13 weeks? Notable NFL stars to come back earlier than expected from major injuries of late include Adrian Peterson (ACL), Terrell Suggs (Achilles) and Robert Griffin III (ACL).

Could Harvin be the latest?
