After being held out of last week's OTA in Eden Prarie, Minnesota due to shoulder surgery, Minnesota Vikings fourth-year receiver Percy Harvin is back on the field as a full participant in this week's sessions.
Harvin suited up for Tuesday's drills, and aside from an obvious level of soreness that was expected in his shoulder, does not appear to be hampered by the injury that many initially feared would keep him on the shelf longer than expected back in April.
The 5-foot-11 weapon played in all 16 games for the first time in his three-year career last season with the Vikings, and tallied career-highs in both receptions (87) and receiving yards (967). In addition to seeing a significant amount of time in the backfield as a runner, Harvin's returning numbers dropped off in 2011 in an effort to keep him fresh throughout the season, and it worked like a charm. And now that he appears close to full health, a career year could be in store for the speedy playmaker in 2012.
