Harvin had three catches on nine targets for 22 receiving yards and four carries for 28 rushing yards in his Jets debut Sunday against the Bills.
The Jets did all the could to get the ball to Harvin, but some atrocious quarterback play (Geno Smith, who was benched in the first quarter, and Michael Vick combined for six turnovers) ultimately held him back. ESPN's Rich Cimini said Harvin played 37 snaps, but he just couldn't get much going on any of them. He appeared to suffer an injury in the first quarter, though he later returned to the game, only to continue his season-long struggles. Making matter worse, the Jets face off against a Chiefs' defense in Week 9 that is allowing the fewest passing yards per game this season.

Harvin returned to Sunday's game against the Bills later in the first quarter after leaving with an apparent injury, ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports.
Still no word on what was ailing Harvin, so perhaps it was simply an equipment issue that forced to him to the locker room temporarily. In any case, he's back in the game, and is now working with Michael Vick, who replaced Geno Smith in the first quarter after three Smith interceptions.

Harvin left Sunday's game against the Bills with an undisclosed injury, ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports.
It was not immediately clear how or when Harvin was injured, but he was taken to the locker room during the first quarter. More details to come.

Coach Rex Ryan implied that Harvin (thigh) will be involved in only limited play sets this week, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said Ryan, "I think that's realistic. It's awful hard to come in and, �Oh by the way here's the offense. Learn it in a week.' I don't know if that's realistic. But we'll have some plays for him and get him back there to return a kick and things like that."
While we doubt Ryan would tell the Buffalo media, "Oh yeah, we're going to put him in on every third down and we've already installed a couple of trick plays, and please feel free to pass it along to your side ..." we can't imagine Harvin will be out there in a new offense nearly as much as Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley to start things off. Harvin has the skill set to make a decent fantasy day in just one play, but with Geno Smith as his quarterback instead of Russell Wilson all while learning a new offense, Harvin seems like a risky play until he gets used to things in his new setting.

The Seahawks agreed to trade Harvin (thigh) to the Jets on Friday in exchange for a conditional draft pick, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports.
It's a surprising development, but one that would make sense for one or both teams depending on the compensation involved. Harvin only played 59.5 percent of Seattle's snaps this year -- nearly 30 percent less than both Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse -- and Harvin doesn't have the blocking skills a run-heavy offense like Seattle's would ideally feature at receiver. If the Seahawks look to replace Harvin's speed on offense, they might look to rookie second-round pick Paul Richardson. While the inconsistent Jets offense isn't an ideal setting for Harvin's fantasy value, he might see an increase in his play count, which will hopefully offset any efficiency decreases. Harvin's arrival should allow the Jets to generate more yardage and points if used properly.

Harvin did not practice Thursday due to a thigh injury, the Seahawks' official site reports.
Harvin missed practice Wednesday as well, but that absence was not listed as injury-related. The fact that Thursday's missed practice was attributed to his thigh injury is obviously more concerning, though there is still a chance that Seattle is simply giving him some extra rest as they did last week. Friday's final injury designations should provide some more information about Harvin's status for Week 7.

Harvin (non-injury) didn't practice Wednesday.
Harvin has cobbled together three consecutive subpar outings, during which he contributed 14 catches (on 18 targets) for 69 yards and five rushes for six yards. Of course, his Week 5 performance at Washington could have turned if one of his three (repeat, three) touchdowns hadn't been overturned by penalty. In any case, expect him to return to practice before long.

Harvin (thigh) had three receptions on four targets for zero yards in Sunday's loss to Dallas. He also ran the ball three times for negative one yard.
The Cowboys played a great game on both sides of the ball, and Russell Wilson and company struggled to get much going. Still, Harvin's lack of production has been a disturbing trend all season. He did have the misfortune of having three touchdowns called back last Monday, but otherwise, he hasn't busted out, not topping more than 60 receiving yards in any of Seattle's five games this season. We'd like to think the speedy Harvin is too explosive to be held down for much longer, it's just a matter of which week the breakout happens.

Harvin (thigh) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Harvin's thigh is not a concern, so he should be safe to deploy Sunday against the Cowboys' average pass defense.

Harvin (thigh) is probable for Sunday's game against Dallas, Sports Radio KJR's Curtis Crabtree reports.
Harvin didn't practice Thursday, but rest evidently had something to do with that. One could argue that Harvin is due for some good luck after having three touchdowns called back against Washington on Monday, and Russell Wilson's high passing efficiency in home games gives reason to hope for a nice game from Harvin. He's averaging just 6.1 yards per target and has received just 22 targets through four games, however, so he seems a bit like a boom-or-bust sort of player for the time being.
