As the Seahawks hoped, receiver Percy Harvin will return to practice this week.

The team listed Harvin as “returned to practice’’ on the NFL’s official transactions lists Monday. The Seahawks will practice for the first time this week Tuesday as they begin preparations for Monday’s game at St. Louis, and presumably Harvin will be on the field when they do.

Harvin remains on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list. But listing him as returning to practice means Seattle now has 21 days to put Harvin on the 53-man active roster or leave him on the PUP list for the rest of the season.

Seattle, though, will undoubtedly activate Harvin during that time, with some speculation it could happen by the St. Louis game. If not, then it could happen when Seattle hosts Tampa Bay on Nov. 3 or plays at Atlanta on Nov. 10.

Harvin has been sidelined since the start of training camp in late July with a hip injury. After getting a second opinion, he had surgery in New York on Aug. 1.

He has rehabilitated the injury in New York and Seattle.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said after Thursday’s 34-22 win at Arizona that Harvin would have workouts through the weekend and that “if he makes it through these days, then he has a chance to practice on Tuesday.’’

Harvin was one of the team’s marquee offseason acquisitions. Seattle traded its 2013 first- and seventh-round picks and a 2014 third-rounder to Minnesota to get him, then signed him to a six-year contract that could pay him as much as $67 million.


• While the Seahawks confirmed they planned to bring in former fullback Michael Robinson for a physical, there was no word if the team planned to sign him. However, a Tweet late Monday night from defensive end Chris Clemons appeared to indicate that Robinson will soon be back.

Clemons Tweeted: “I’d like to welcome our captain Mike Rob back.’’
