Perrish Cox released, and what that tells us about Percy Harvin

The Seahawks waived cornerback Perrish Cox on Friday, a move that by itself wouldn’t seem all that significant—Cox had played sparingly in the past two games since signing with Seattle. But the fact that Cox was let go, presumably to make room for cornerback Walter Thurmond, who is coming off of a suspension, could be at least somewhat encouraging news when it comes to Percy Harvin.

Earlier this week, Carroll had said a roster move could be coming for Harvin, who has played in only one game this season following offseason hip surgery, leading to speculation that Harvin could end up on injured reserve to make room for Thurmond’s return. That Harvin apparently will stay on the 53-man roster, barring a surprise move tomorrow, is a sign that the Seahawks are holding out at least some hope of him playing at some point this postseason.

UPDATE

The Seahawks made the roster move official, activating Thurmond from the reserve/suspended list to replace Cox. That means, for now at least, that Harvin does indeed stay on the roster.
