Wide receiver Percy Harvin could make his long-awaited Seattle Seahawks debut on Monday Night Football next week, according to multiple reports.

Harvin, acquired in March for a 2013 first-round draft pick and two 2014 picks, underwent surgery for a torn hip labrum and was expected to be sidelined until around Thanksgiving.

But the former Pro Bowler has been ahead of schedule and could return for Seattle's Week 8 game against the St. Louis Rams if he shows enough progress at practice this week, sources told CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

From CBSSports.com:

“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.”

The Seahawks have stressed to the player -- who they gave up multiple picks for and made the third-highest paid receiver in the NFL this offseason -- that they will take the longview to his recovery and not do anything they believe is rushed in any way, But considering the pace of his progress to this point, it may not be a rushed situation for him to return in some capacity eight days from now.

“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.”

Harvin, who made 62 receptions for 677 yards in nine games with the Minnesota Vikings last season, can practice for up to three weeks before the Seahawks need to decide whether to remove him from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.
