Seahawks' Harvin prepares to play in Super Bowl

Renton, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Despite missing the NFC Championship Game due to a concussion, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin expects to be ready for Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2.

"I feel good," Harvin said Thursday after putting in his second full day of practice. "It was good to get back out there with my guys."

Harvin sustained a concussion in the second quarter of Seattle's 23-15 wild- card win over New Orleans. He hit his head hard on the turf while attempting to make a touchdown catch and did not return, leaving him unavailable for the team's victory over San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game.

It was only Harvin's second game since being acquired by Seattle from the Minnesota Vikings during the offseason. He underwent arthroscopic surgery in August and missed the Seahawks' first 10 contests before facing his former team on Nov. 17. Harvin was then held out for the remainder of the regular season after experiencing swelling and stiffness in his hip.

The fifth-year pro caught three passes for 21 yards prior to exiting Seattle's win over the Saints.
