Kevin Patra of NFL.com broke the news on Jan. 23, a welcome development for Seattle Seahawks fans

"Percy Harvin passed concussion protocol and has been cleared to play against the Denver Broncos, the team confirmed Thursday to NFL Media. 

"With Harvin on the field, the Seahawks are a much more dangerous offense. Before the receiver suffered a concussion in the divisional round game against the New Orleans Saints, quarterback Russell Wilson targeted Harvin prolifically. 

"Harvin was optimistic earlier Thursday that he would be able to play, but he downplayed the significance." 

ESPN's Terry Blount also confirmed Harvin's positive status for the Super Bowl. He interviewed Harvin, who said his injury issues in 2013 have made him "a stronger person." 

"It's been a roller coaster, but also a blessing. I wouldn't take anything back that has happened this year. It's made me a stronger person. 

"It's definitely been frustrating, not only for me, but a lot of people, like my teammates not knowing if I'm going to be able to practice. That's all over with now and we get the chance to play for the Super Bowl, so it's all in the past." 

Harvin took two big hits from the Saints on Jan. 11. Saints safety Rafael Bush's hit Jenkins resulted in a 15-yard penalty and a fine of $21,000.  

The second one was from New Orleans safety Malcolm Jenkins, which resulted in Harvin "hitting his head on the turf," per Tim Booth of The Associated Press. 

Harvin downplayed speculation he was a target of the Saints defense and told Booth,"I thought they were just playing football." 

The Seattle receiver was cleared to practice with the team on Jan. 22, per Clare Farnsworth of the Seahawks' official website. The latter interviewed offensive coordinator Dave Bevell who said,"He (Harvin) looked fine. We just evaluate him through today and see what kind of progress he can make." 

Blount also reports Harvin is grateful for the support he received from the entire Seattle organization throughout his season-long ordeal with injuries. He also said he felt no pressure when he signed with the team to the tune of $67 million for six years in March. 

"I can't even put it in words. Guys like Richard Sherman, and also Kam Chancellor, him being from my area (Virginia), came and talked to me a bunch of times. The coaches, the whole building, even the cooks, were giving me love and kept me pushing. They've all been there for me. 

"Not at all. I'm a football player and I'm confident in my game. Things happened that I couldn't control. I didn't look at money or anything to that degree. I just wanted to get back on the field and help my teammates."

Harvin underwent hiip surgery on Aug. 1, 2013 and was cleared to take the field on Nov. 17 against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. He re-aggravated his hip injury which forced him to sit out the remainder of the 2013 NFL season. 

The 25-year-old Harvin has amassed 3,319 yards on 281 receptions for 20 touchdowns in his five-year NFL career, per ESPN stats. 

The Seahawks will face the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. on Feb. 2 with a 6:25 p.m. ET kickoff.
