RENTON, Wash. — Seattle Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin was a full participant in practice Thursday for the first time since his hip surgery Aug. 1, increasing the likelihood that he will play Sunday against his former Minnesota Vikings teammates.

Harvin did not speak to reporters, but he is expected to talk Friday. If he plays Sunday, it will be his first appearance in an NFL game since Nov. 4, 2012 — ironically, when the Vikings played at Seattle.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson said he doesn’t anticipate much of an adjustment period when Harvin joins the offense.

“I feel so comfortable with Percy,” Wilson said Thursday. “I threw a ton with him this offseason before the injury really popped up, so it was one of those things where we had a really good relationship before. I trust what he does.”

Wilson believes Harvin can make an immediate difference for the Seahawks.

“He’s in and out of his breaks really quickly,” Wilson said. “He’s just a great football player. You want to give him the ball as much as you can. On our offense, we have so many guys that we can use. You add Percy into the mix and he brings a whole other explosive mentality to our football team.”

Cornerback Richard Sherman returned to full practice participation Thursday after missing practice Wednesday with what was listed as a hip injury, but Sherman said he really just need a day to rest.
