Report: Percy Harvin seeing doctor in NY Tuesday about hip

Percy Harvin AP

On Thursday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that the team needed more information about the state of wide receiver Percy Harvin’s hip before they could determine how long Harvin would be out of action.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that they’ll get some more insight on Tuesday. According to Schefter, Harvin is going to travel to New York to get a second opinion from Dr. Bryan Kelly. Kelly specializes in hip injuries and performed surgery on New York Yankees pariah Alex Rodriguez’s torn labrum earlier this year among many other operations.

Harvin reportedly has a “slight” tear in his labrum and Schefter reports that both player and team want a second opinion to determine if surgery is necessary to correct the problem. If he does have surgery, Harvin will likely be out for a considerable amount of time and the Seahawks will be scrambling to replace the player who was the centerpiece of their offseason machinations before he plays a single snap for the team.

It’s not advisable for anyone to hold their breath over four days, but some in Seattle may be doing just that while waiting for word on Harvin’s outlook for the 2013 season.

    I’m sure the ‘doctor’ will give him something for his ‘hip’.

    General info on hip arthroscopy for labral tears:

    Patients can expect to use crutches for about two weeks after surgery or longer depending on the type of surgery performed.
    Rehabilitation will be progressive as patients meet certain criteria and move toward a return to full activities, including sports.
    Return to high-impact sports will take eight to 12 weeks.

    That would suggest PUP list and a week 7 return, though maybe he could look to another former Viking and current teammate, Tavaris, about playing through pain and getting it taken care of in February instead. Sounds like the team cleared him to practice, so think about that $10m/yr salary and suck it up

    I’ll take our chances with Jennings and Patterson, have fun with that bum Seattle.

  5. punksinplay says: Jul 26, 2013 11:24 AM

    If it’s not one thing, it’s another with this guy. So much unfulfilled promise.

  6. ampats says: Jul 26, 2013 11:24 AM

    He’s going to see A Rod’s doctor who gave him the 2nd opinion.

  7. yogiberra111 says: Jul 26, 2013 11:25 AM

    What looked like a good trade for the Vikings now looks like a brilliant trade. Those who have followed Harvin’s career are not surprised. His style of play is amazing but very much prone to injury.

  8. jcmeyer10 says: Jul 26, 2013 11:26 AM

    In Spielman We Trust!

    Rice has been a bust relative to salary and Harvin was a headache and one who wouldn’t have played next year anyway!

  9. jagwires says: Jul 26, 2013 11:26 AM

    This is karma for all the dirty Seahawk fans that were celebrating the Michael Crabtree injury.

  10. gdeli says: Jul 26, 2013 11:27 AM

    This is amazing. I wish him the best but this is the crap the Vikings didn’t need so it was great timing to let him go. I am still angry at sidney rice for deciding DURING the 2010 training camp that…”oh, now is the time to get my hip surgery”. omg! nice way to blow up the team from the start of the season! We also didn’t need an unfocused favre who texts his junk to a girl and still gets paid 16 million bucks? geez.

  11. nickster31 says: Jul 26, 2013 11:28 AM

    How did Seattle not know about his when they were trading for him?

    If they did, and they gave up a first round pick for him, then their entire front office should be fired ASAP!

    If they didn’t know, then their team doctor needs to have his license suspended!

  12. kenshalek says: Jul 26, 2013 11:28 AM

    I’m breathing relief because as a Vik’s fan I’ve seen this every year..Not a Viking prob anymore!!!!!!!. Thanks for the draft pick’s’…..Ha ha ha..

  13. MasMacho says: Jul 26, 2013 11:28 AM

    We’ve never had him on the field, and we traded no players to get him. So it’s a huge bummer, but changes little from what we’ve seen on the field in the past.

  14. kdub79 says: Jul 26, 2013 11:29 AM

    Harvin never ceases to amaze mw. What’s next? Being experimented on by aliens? He seems to be football’s version of boxing’s glass jaw.

  24. ickky says: Jul 26, 2013 11:42 AM

    I wouldn’t worry about it too much halk fans. This is just Percy’s latest “injury” that will keep him out of practice. you will get used to it

    Like I said yesterday. …I will not delight in this mans injury, but it is humorous to see Seaadderall fans get butthurt even though they were giggly as school girls over Crabtree’s injury. …for the most part. There are a couple decent human beings representing that team…not many, but a couple.

    —–The report I saw said this happened after the trade during OTA workouts. I’m sure the hawks probed him like a UFO, especially with the migraines, I’ll bet they scanned him several ways.

  30. jets4everbaby says: Jul 26, 2013 11:47 AM

    There is no way this guy plays a full season for Seattle this year. His migraines hip this that…..Bad signing for the hawks!

  31. nflpoker says: Jul 26, 2013 11:47 AM

    Fortunately, the Vikings traded “as is”. There was no reason to give Seattle a warranty on this guy.

  32. GenXJay says: Jul 26, 2013 11:49 AM

    I wonder who the Vikings draft w/Seattle’s 3rd round pick next year?
    Oh well. I will just have to wait.

  33. Norseman says: Jul 26, 2013 11:50 AM

    This is pretty much par for the course with Harvin. He never played more than 40% of the offensive snaps in Minnesota- either because of a variety of injuries or limited playing time to prevent injuries.

    Harvin is the best kick-returner in the league and truly explosive in that role. As a WR, he is far from complete. He has never been a good route-runner, so over half of his touches had to be manufactured in bubble-screens or reverses, which is limiting to an offensive scheme, regardless of Harvin’s YAC ability.

    Add to that his injury-prone playing style and attitude issues, and I am so happy the Vikings were able to unload him for a #1, #3 and #7 round picks rather than sign him to an elite contract. He just isn’t worth it.

    Much rather have Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson- both of which the Vikings were able to acquire rather than re-signing Harvin.

    From a Seahawks perspective, Harvin’s injury issues are unlikely to improve over time. I guess Harvin gives Sidney Rice someone to talk to in rehab and on the bench.

  34. jayhawk777 says: Jul 26, 2013 11:50 AM

    The Hawks had the #1 Defense in the NFL and the weaknesses were addressed in Avril & Bennett for pass rush & Winfield as the nickelback.

    Harvin was a cherry but the Hawk way is still pound the rock with Lynch and go play action. While no #1, Hawks have a solid corp of receivers.

    The Vikings will still be average even with the best rb in the league withChristian. Ponder that for a few.

    Hawks were not gloating about any team’s injuries bcuz that’s not right. Fans should never be happy over an injury. That is ruthless and mean spirited.

  35. vgferenzi says: Jul 26, 2013 11:56 AM

    Going on five years of everyone lauding him as one of the best based on what he might do. He misses three games per year, he complains about everything, when things get tough…he gets migraines. This guy is soft like a soup sandwich and will be another starter not on the field for Seattle opening day.

  36. schmitty2 says: Jul 26, 2013 11:59 AM

    There is no disputing the Hawks will look like the initial losers in this trade if this injury requires surgery but for all the Vikes fans saying this is a steal..shouldn’t you at least wait to see if your draft picks..you know..actually pan out and are productive before you start gloating?

    ==================================

    Remember when the Vikings didn’t get their draft pick in time and lost their position? Lol. Stay hot Vikings!!! I also love how Jennings is talking junk about Rodgers and the Packers. Dude caught balls from two of the greatest to ever do it, enjoy noodle arm Ponder buddy. GO PACK GO!!!

  38. purpleguy says: Jul 26, 2013 12:00 PM

    It’s too bad Percy is hurt, as he’s a heck of a player, but this admittedly lessens the impact of his loss to the Vikes a bit. I wonder why in hell he waited so long to get the hip looked at?

  39. fluffy19 says: Jul 26, 2013 12:00 PM

    I’m a Vikes fan who loved Percy and I think calling him injury “prone” is misleading because historically that implies softness. Percy, on game day, is one of the TOUGHEST players I’ve ever seen. He’s injury prone in a different way. His style of play his so aggressive and fast that he takes himself out of a lot of plays during games just due to his own speed and physicality. He often needs 2-3 plays off cuz he’s gassed or dinged, but pound for pound, he is very tough. Almost too much so. Say what you will about Cris Carter (he’s a schmuck) but he always used to talk about avoiding contact, and taking care of his body, and keeping himself healthy. Percy’s game is antithetical to this. This is how he’s injury prone, but historically he’s played through pain at a high level.

    As a Vikes fan, the two main reasons I’m happy with the trade despite my love of Percy are that I don’t trust Percy now that he’s gotten his 20+mil signing bonus. We’ll see how that effects his “gamer” status. The second reason is that Percy’s new heir, Flash Patterson, has similar juice, but is more inclined to AVOID CONTACT. Percy is so tough that he’s gonna get himself killed. From what I’ve seen of CP84, he uses his speed to elude rather than lower his shoulder, which is fine…we’ve got someone else on the roster to lay some wood.

    As a guy who hates any fan who cheers for injury (especially when they share my team and represent so poorly) I wish Percy a quick recovery and successful season. I want his team to lose, but he and A. Winfield were 2 of my all time favorite players and I wish them both success. If you cheer for injury and judge people based strictly what team they pledge their allegiance to, you’re part of the problem…please keep it to yourself. Skol!

  40. nflpoker says: Jul 26, 2013 12:02 PM

    But there is one thing you can say about Harvin. He’s consistent.

  41. ccjcsr says: Jul 26, 2013 12:02 PM

    Let him play so he can completely tear it!

  42. eclipsingbinary says: Jul 26, 2013 12:07 PM

    Quit whining about ruthlessness jayhawk. Vikings fans know Ponder is at best an average QB.

    If you don’t like trolls then quit reading the comments.

  43. cowboysp says: Jul 26, 2013 12:09 PM

    Hey, there is some good news on this.

    At least Harvin got paid first!!!

  44. nflpoker says: Jul 26, 2013 12:10 PM

    I thought Harvin was just a pain above the neck.
    Now, I guess he’s a pain in the butt too.

  45. sweetnlow44 says: Jul 26, 2013 12:15 PM

    49er fans are incredible. Just because 1 or 2 Seahawk fans laughed when Crabtree got injured, they get this weird sensation that every Seahawk fan celebrates their players’ injuries. Get a grip. You guys are supposedly so superior to the Seahawks, act like it. Don’t be so defensive anytime the Seahawks are mentioned.

    offthelows,
    Thanks for the information on hip tears, we get a better idea what to expect because there isn’t much information from the team at the moment.

    If Seattle fans are like me, we are disappointed that he won’t be out there early in the season but still excited for Harvin and the trade to get him . Viking fans all want to come here and claim they are winners because they got a first rounder and 3rd next year. Seattle has 3 weapons at WR that can produce, Harvin is that special piece that defenses have to account for. In 3 years when your draft class deals are up, If any of them are good we will welcome them with open arms in the Pacific Northwest.

  48. pillowporkers says: Jul 26, 2013 12:20 PM

    I hope Percy get’s healthy soon. I don’t wish injury on him he’s one of the most fun players in the game.

    That being said, just think, all my fellow negative Vikings fans ripping the organization for trading him. Just think of where we’d be now if we didn’t trade Percy?

    We’d have just signed him to a long term deal (or didn’t and are dealing with an equally stressful holdout), and have to deal with the stress of him missing training camp and possibly the first 6 weeks of the season. If we did this, Greg Jennings would not be on our team due to his money going to Percy. Neither would Xavier Rhodes due to the lack of draft pick, and the Vikes would be EXTREMELY weak without Winfield, who we still would have had to cut to make room for Percy’s money. We may or may not have drafted Cordarrelle Patterson. Even if we still did, Greg wouldn’t be there to mentor Cordarrelle, who I’d much rather have mentoring him than Percy, who generally does his own thing and isn’t much of a leader. Plus, we’d still be without a reliable number 1 WR for the upcoming season. Vikes also saved 3mil per year that can (12 to percy vs. 9 to greg) be allocated to other issues, and an extra 3rd round pick for next year still. Negative Vikes fans, you still think it was a bad move?

  49. seahawksteven777 says: Jul 26, 2013 12:21 PM

    What goes unnoticed is that the Seahawks very well could have swept the 49ers last year. Had the Seahawks not had a case of the drops in the first game, they probably would have won that game.

    Despite being run on in that game, the Seahawks were in that game the whole way and those drops in critical moments were the difference. Any 49ers fan knows this but I wouldn’t expect them to admit it. Why would they?

  50. orcahawk says: Jul 26, 2013 12:22 PM

    Oh Noes !

    Now the poor Hawks are stuck with the same lame recievers that got them within a tick of the NFC Championship game….

    Horrors !

  51. pftisterrible says: Jul 26, 2013 12:24 PM

    This is the same team that crushed the Niners and Vikings last year WITHOUT Harvin. The Seahawks are still the best team in the NFC even if Harvin is out for the year. Suck it, haters

    One last thing…Pete Carroll does not try to force his players back early from injury. All Pro C Max Unger sat out a full year with turf toe. 1st round pick worked hard to come back early last year, he was placed on IR so he could get healthy for 2013. I noticed that 3 or 4 articles tried to imply he’s being rushed out there for monetary reasons. Those people clearly don’t follow the team.

  54. donth8thehorns says: Jul 26, 2013 12:27 PM

    Enough of the Digs! Harvin was a tremendous weapon for the Vikings. We were sad to see him go. It is a shame to see fellow Viking fans excited about his injury! We certainly want to be successful this season, but not @ the expense of an injured player

  55. seahawksteven777 says: Jul 26, 2013 12:28 PM

    Also, the injury didn’t spring up until recently, so for all those people saying why no x-ray and all, that’s why.

    _____________________________

    We still have Tate and Baldwin in contract years….think they might be motivated if they wind up with extra touches? And Miller and Rice and Lynch…oh yeah, and that Wilson guy, heard he might be pretty good.

    In other words, the same offense that was flipping up 40burgers faster than the McDonald’s workers who will be giving this post a “thumbs down” can flip Big Macs would still be in effect.

    Plus, even if he does have to have surgery, it’s a 10-16 week heal, so he potentially would be back for the end of the regular season and playoffs….if he doesn’t decide to just go ahead and see if he can play through the season, and have the surgery after it’s over.

    It sure is fun to watch all the gloaters and haters do their little rage dances, though. Very amusing!

  59. cball77 says: Jul 26, 2013 12:34 PM

    If Harvin is out for time it will hurt the offense, but Josh Alper is incorrect that they’ll be scrambling to replace him.

    Doug Baldwin is an excellent slot receiver. Maybe not Percy, but he’s been great for 2 seasons. Bad injury luck last year but was great when he was in.

  60. jprcox says: Jul 26, 2013 12:44 PM

    I am a Seahawk fan, and I am blown away by this. Seriously, is this guy a “bowl in a China shop” – that barely mixes well anywhere..esp not in the NFL. Seattle made a big mistake already – this guy is never not hurt and we knew that going in. He wants his check, and will sit on the bench giving a big smile to everyone.

    Seattle is still a very good team, but factoring in a healthy Harvin I thought put us over the top in a big way. Many games comes down to a few plays, and I thought he was the difference.

    Giving G.Tate that extension over PHarvin trade looks very attractive right now…PLUS having a 1st rounder. Well played Vikes, well played.

    Correct Hawk fans, you didn’t have Harvin when you smoked the 49ers . . . who in September will have the Smith brothers both healthy and will not have shot their wad the week before at New England.

    The last team to win a game at Seattle will be the next team to win a game at Seattle.

  64. cball77 says: Jul 26, 2013 12:49 PM

    Harvin is not injury prone. He’s missed 3 games in 4 seasons before his high ankle sprain last year in his 4th season. People saying he’s injury prone need to click on his name in the article above and look at his career stats.

    Talk around Seattle is that this may be more to do with Percy not wanting to be in training camp (like the migraine issue his rookie year in camp) than the hip issue.

    Yes Percy is a diva and that is not good. However, the guy is a gamer and his stats show it. My guess is he’s ready for week 1. Many around camp think the doctor on Tuesday is just a way for him to miss more practice. Remember team doctors reported on Thursday that he was fine to play through it.

    My bold prediction is the doctor in New York says surgery is not needed, Percy milks it through camp and misses preseason games, and is ready to go vs the Panthers.

  65. needleyou says: Jul 26, 2013 12:50 PM

    If it’s an anterior tear and it’s not too severe a specialized form of electro-acupuncture that I’ve developed could have him fixed up in probably 2-4 weeks. It’s based on hard science (I’m also an electrical engineer) and has worked well on torn menisci of the knee and other partially torn tendons and ligaments. Western doctors simply aren’t aware of my technique but it is based on a technique used in western medicine to repair non-union fractures.

  66. shayeezy says: Jul 26, 2013 12:53 PM

    I’ll take our chances with Jennings and Patterson, have fun with that bum Seattle.

    Stop it!! An aging receiver, and, a rookie who by all accounts needs a lot of work to become a pro is the chance you want to take? Good luck buddy, especially with Ponder throwing back there.

    As for you haters out there, you realize Seattle was a beast of a team last season without Harvin don’t you? It would have been nice to add that extra element to the offense but, we will make due with what we have. A #1 scoring defense, Lynch, Russell Wilson, and a pretty good WR core, the NFL’s best secondary, and, very few holes. Good luck to all your teams. Remember it’s early in camp, you all could lose a star player at some point, so, don’t get to happy about another teams loss, you could be next.

    What goes unnoticed is that the Seahawks very well could have swept the 49ers last year. Had the Seahawks not had a case of the drops in the first game, they probably would have won that game.

    Despite being run on in that game, the Seahawks were in that game the whole way and those drops in critical moments were the difference. Any 49ers fan knows this but I wouldn’t expect them to admit it. Why would they?
    ————-
    I’ll admit it if it makes you happy.
    The year that the niners won the superbowl (1994), eagles thrashed them 40-8.
    Of course, we went on to hoist the trophy that year.
    I am sure eagles fans were excited to experience that thrill. We just enjoyed the euphoria of winning a title. Get the drift…

    It’s true the Vikes had to move down one spot in that draft but they used that pick on Kevin Williams! That didn’t turn too bad, did it?

    YES, it worked!!

    One team that can forget the NFC battle, is GB. They already have 7 on the PUP list and its only day one of training camp. Seems they again have a team full of Percy Harvins, injury wise that is.

    How could Viking fans forget? We wound up picking Kevin Williams, which worked out OK for us.

    Nice trade Viks

    The Hawks should be good this year, but most of the fans posting on this site have been reading way to many preseason rankings. The reality is that your team won one playoff game against an injured RGIII. How one playoff victory makes you the best team in the NFC is beyond me.

    Haha, yeah! I remember that one. The one where the Vikings drafted 5 time All-Pro and 6 time Pro Bowler Kevin Williams after the Jaguars jumped ahead to take Byron Leftwich.

    Boy, what dummies!!!

    SMH

  82. purplehaze28 says: Jul 26, 2013 1:53 PM

    Darn! I was looking forward to seeing him torch the 9ers and seeing him in a Vikings-Seahawks NFC Championship Game match.

    He probably got hurt by overtraining.

    Wish him well!

  83. filthymcnasty1 says: Jul 26, 2013 2:14 PM

    Maybe the Vikings can get Seattle to overpay for the similarly injury prone Christian Ponder.

  84. southpaw79 says: Jul 26, 2013 2:16 PM

    You seahawks fans with your mighty home field advantage realize you have not won a game in San Francisco since 2008 right? Just for reference the 49ers are 3-2 in Seattle since that time.

  85. shlort says: Jul 26, 2013 2:22 PM

    Percy has proven one thing over anything else in his NFL career. He is soft. e is always hurt with some sissy ailment or another. He wants the money, he just doesn’t want to have t practice or play for it.

  86. scmems07 says: Jul 26, 2013 2:36 PM

    Thumbs down if your a shehawks fans and your still getting your feelings hurt.

    Reason for optimism:

    Just listened to a reporter from USA Today on 710 Seattle who has spent the last number of years in Minnesota covering the Vikings.

    He says there’s 2 main hip specialists in the country – one in NY who Harvin is seeing Tuesday and one in Colorado who he is not seeing. Apparantly the guy in Colorado almost always goes for surgery on athletes while the NY doctor usually opts for no surgery.

    Fingers crossed.

  89. northstarnic says: Jul 26, 2013 3:29 PM

    The fact is, that with Percy it’s always going to be something. If not migraines, it’s his hip. IF those two issues were resolved, it would be something else. All the talent in the world, but you’re lucky if you got him on the field 50% of the time. And that’s not even to mention getting him out there for practice.

  90. nychawkfan80 says: Jul 26, 2013 3:58 PM

    He’d be a plus to have this year but who cares if he’s out until week 7 or the whole year? Defense was the issue last season and lost us the Falcons game. Bradley is gone and we improved our pass rush immensely. Harvin was cherry on top and would be awesome to have. So maybe this year we only beat the Niners by 20 at home.

  91. nflpoker says: Jul 26, 2013 4:01 PM

    I am curious how did Percy Harvin’s, excuse me, Percy Injury’s, doctor appointment went. Anyone know? Or didn’t he go yet?

  92. Frazier28/7 says: Jul 26, 2013 4:07 PM

    Harvin – Peterson. no problem
    Harvin – Ponder. no problem-ish
    Harvin – Frazier. no problem
    Harvin – Spielman. problem

    The Vikings weren’t going to give him a contract based on injuries and outbursts before camp, he wasn’t going to report to camp without a contract.

    Best of look to him, he’ll come back and be a force, but not til week 9-10 if he needs surgery. Same thing happened to Rice heading into ’10

    This hip thing is a new injury though, it was always head or ankle with percy. Never heard of this hip problem before.

    Someone get a word of the day calendar?

  95. kdsr382013 says: Jul 26, 2013 4:42 PM

    As a Niner Fan, I’d just like to say how unfortunate it is that your front office was “duped” into aquiring what appears to be damaged goods. Wonder how he passed his physical? See, down in SF, when we trade for a player, we give him a physical, and if he fails, we advise the league and have the trade nullified, as with Eric Wright. I know some of you were critical of our front office recently, and was really amazed at the multitude of ways many of you out there would have treated the situation. Which begs the question, with so many Jr. GM’s up there in the northwest, how did you get duped?

  96. kdsr382013 says: Jul 26, 2013 4:44 PM

    Oh, and I almost forgot……..

    GOOOOOOO NINERS!!!!!!

    SEE YOU DORKS IN WEEK 2. HOPE PRECIOUS PERCY IS READY

  97. jrazz22 says: Jul 26, 2013 5:10 PM

    Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving fanbase.

  98. jprcox says: Jul 27, 2013 1:03 AM

    I know the expression is “bull”, but I am saying Harvin is more like the bowl that gets broken. How would Harvin being a bull in a china shop make any sense? The bull breaks things, doesn’t get broken…

    I don’t get why you would think I meant bull over bowl – haven’t you seen someone twist an expression to make a point?

  100. gunsmoke527 says: Jul 27, 2013 11:21 AM

    No shocker here. PH does not want to practice, but come game time he’s wanting to go. Yeah, he’s got talent and can show it with some numbers, and it’s probably because he’s all rested up and plays his game when he wants. (Remember a fella named Moss?) It’s too bad he didn’t stay in Minnesota. (I despise the Vikings)

  101. joeyashwi says: Jul 27, 2013 1:58 PM

    Harvin is a great individual player but not a great team player. The Vikings, with their truly pathetic group of receivers last year, did better without him in the lineup. Too many forced plays to Harvin when he was in the game. Granted, Seattle would probably use him better but it seems like he is an addition by subtraction kind of player.
