Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has revealed he is optimistic that wide receiver Percy Harvin could return to action this week.

The 26-year-old sustained a setback in his recovery from a hip injury after initially playing just one game since his comeback from the ailment that had kept him out for the first 10 weeks of the campaign.

"I've already heard from the trainers this morning," Carroll told ESPN. "Percy came in jacked up. He had a little procedure done last week that made a difference.

"He feels really good this morning and we're looking forward to a really good week. We'll see what happens."

Seattle secured a place in the NFC playoffs with their victory over the New Orleans Saints on Monday.
