"He's so itching to get back, that that's why we sped it up," Ryan explained. "We were going to wait four days to give him the shot. We gave it to him early. Hopefully he responds on it."
Although Ryan hopes to have Harvin back for the third preseason game versus the Steelers, he acknowledged the preseason finale at Detroit might be more realistic.
"He doesn't want to go into (the season opener) with no game work," Ryan added. "So he is trying to get back on the field."
