JERSEY CITY, N.J. — About midseason, when Percy Harvin began making his comeback to the Seahawks, coach Pete Carroll jokingly began to refer to the receiver as being in various "phases" of his return.
So Carroll took it to its next logical step Monday when asked about Harvin.

"Yeah, we're in a phase of Super Bowl right now," Carroll said.
And that means to expect Harvin to play, and probably a lot, likely similar to his role in the divisional playoff game against the Saints before he suffered a concussion that held him out of the NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.
"He's in," Carroll said. "He had another great day (of practice) today (Monday) and a great week last week. He's part of the game plan."
Harvin played 19 snaps against the Saints before being injured late in the second quarter, catching three passes for 21 yards and also getting one carry for 9 yards.
