Fragile WR group prompts Harvin's return

Fragile receiving group prompts Harvin's return 

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson hasn’t accounted for a touchdown over the past three weeks. Nevertheless, the team’s thrilled to even have him available for tonight’s battle against Buffalo.

Despite an injury-riddled campaign, Wilson keeps piloting the Seahawks (4-2-1) with unswerving confidence. Pete Carroll’s troops, 23rd-ranked offense and all, occupy first place in the NFC West. According to the head coach, his Pro Bowler under center is finally beginning to shake off knee, ankle and pectoral maladies, too.

Bet on Bills vs. Seahawks

The Bills (4-4) certainly face their own questions on the medical front. Star rusher LeSean McCoy (hamstring), who missed last Sunday’s 41-25 loss to New England, appears to be a game-time decision here. In addition, NFL sack leader Lorenzo Alexander figures to get limited reps due to a hamstring ailment.

Arguably the most intriguing storyline swirling around Orchard Park, though, involves a scintillating X-factor from yesteryear. Buffalo recently pulled Percy Harvin out of retirement to help solidify a suspect wideout corps. With No. 1 threat Sammy Watkins still sidelined by foot discomfort, Harvin may see a fair number of targets right away. The Florida product played in just five contests for the Bills in 2015.

If he’s simply half as explosive as the guy who opened the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVIII with an 87-yard kick-return score, Harvin will make the Seahawks’ compromised secondary at least think twice. Hard-hitting safety Kam Chancellor remains hobbled by a groin issue. Michael Bennett’s continued recovery from arthroscopic knee surgery also muddies the picture along the front four.
