Harvin goes to regular-season PUP list

As expected, the Seahawks have decided to leave receiver Percy Harvin on the Physically Unable to Perform list following surprise surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip.

The move means that Harvin, a high-profile offseason trade acquisition from the Vikings, will remain off the team’s official roster through at least Week Six.  After Week Six, the Seahawks have five weeks to activate Harvin for practice purposes.  Once activated, the Seahawks will have three weeks to put him on the 53-man roster or shelve him for the year.

The Seahawks gave some consideration to using the injured reserve “light” designation on Harvin, which would have allowed him to return to play at any point after Week Eight.  But that’s a one-per-club opportunity; if they had used it on Harvin, they wouldn’t have been able to use it on anyone who may get injured moving forward.

By leaving Harvin on PUP, he can return in theory at any point from Week Seven until Week 15.

The Seahawks also shifted defensive end Greg Scruggs and cornerback Tharold Simon to the reserve/PUP list, and they placed linebacker Korey Toomer on injured reserve.

The Seahawks now have 75 players on the roster.

  1. After receiving surgery, this is actually good news. Harvin was going to eventually be on some injury list. The team opted to go with the lesser injury designation of PUP, instead of IR or IR ‘light.’

  2. The Seahawks already had quality WRs before trading for him and were dominating opponents all of the second half of the season. They’ll be fine without him and he will be a pleasant bonus when he returns.

  3. You’re welcome for the draft picks Viking fans! We’ll need harvin late In the season, for when we play you

  4. Tharold Simon has an injury…. hee hee. Seahawks redshirted Jesse Williams, now they redshirt Tharold Simon. Those sneaky Seahawks!!!

    Harvin will be back this year and hoist the Lombardi Trophy with the rest of the team.

    GO HAWKS!
    =========================

    I think you mean “heist” the Lombardi Trophy, cuz that’s the only way the Seachickens are going to get it.

  6. Percy is the only one who spoke the truth about Christian “Happy Feet” Ponder. Once he is healed up, he’s gonna double his production with the Sea Chickens compared to his time in Minny and Chrisitan “Noodle Arm” Ponder.

  7. I went to a Packer thread and saw all of the Viking fan remarks with that being , everytime I see ViQueen fans on a Packer thread I will come on their thread and remind them that they have NEVER WON A SUPER BOWL , and this is will be no different.
    How does it feel to have ZERO chance of winning a World Championship
    Pathetic losers …pathetic organization…LOVE BOAT Coaches selling Super Bowl tickets No titles PATHETIC

    If Wilson hoists the Lombardi they will be about the same size. Your vertically impaired quarterback will not last 6 games before being sent to the infirmary.

  9. Giant 6 year contract in which he will probably only play about 2 years of it and 3 draft picks including a #1. Great job shehawks. At least Wallace is on the field

  10. Harvin will be missed in Minnesota, we will miss his constant headaches, we will miss him throwing weights at his coaches, we will miss his tirades on the sidelines during games, we will miss him practicing when he wants too, we will miss him trashing his QB oh yes Percy Harvin will be missed!

    “thanks for the draft picks seattle!”

    we tried sending you some draft picks

    but they were picked off and returned for a touchdown.

    ——————————————————-

    You’re welcome. But you should’ve drafted a QB. Oh well, at least AP can try for 2,000 yards again.

  12. The draft picks added up to basically nothing. You got Xavier Rhodes (who?) and some other nobodies for Harvin. Meanwhile, we still had the 2nd most picks in the draft and finished filling out our roster.

    Oh, and don’t look now, but Harvin is “weeks and weeks” ahead of schedule in his rehab. Not to mention the Seahawks averaged 32 points a game in the last 10 weeks last year without him.

    It’s gonna be a looooong season for you haters

  13. The Seahawks gave some consideration to using the injured reserve “light” designation on Harvin, which would have allowed him to return to play at any point after Week Eight. But that’s a one-per-club opportunity;

    This makes no sense.

    PUP means player never participated in camp, is protected, won’t count against regular season 53, and can return earlier than week 8.

    What am I missing?

  14. i wonder what all these percy and hawk haters will be posting when he gets back around week 10 and provides even more pop to an already unstoppable offense? along with the #1 D in the league to help matters, what will you all say when percy and friends are holding the lombardi in feb?…. hmmm, gonna sting real good i bet

    sactown they have never played with Harvin, but they have with the rest of the WRs so its nothing horribly troublesome
    ——————

    I realize that but wasn’t he going to start with Sydney on the other side? What is your WR depth chart looking like now. Is Rice’s knee ok? Aside from Beastmode, who are Wilson’s weapons?

  16. Once again, this Viking fan hopes Percy fully recovers and does well — after the Hawks play the Vikes.

  17. While Sheldon and Leonard are busy arguing over theoretical physics and which superhero has greater powers, us non-virgins who have won SBs are across the hall making fun of you and bangin’ pretty Penny.

    That’s what it’s like for most NFL fans listening to Vikings and Seahawks fans argue.

    Sounds like another Seahawks fan who is still in a state of denial.

    BTW, Seahawks fans, you say that the Seahawks will be just fine not having Harvin play because you have such good receivers. If so, why did Seattle trade for Harvin in the first place? Sounds like a certain NFCW team got fleeced in the Harvin trade and refuse to admit it.

    Wow, a great football mind right here, folks. You lost all credibility in your very first sentence. This must be a proud day for you.

    Wow! Brilliant commentary–and an amazing display of the written English language. You nailed it: spelling, punctuation, sentence structure and even logic. Your parents, whom I can only assume are siblings, must be proud. By the way, Harvin is with the Seahawks now. This is a Seattle thread.

  21. I’m a Seahawks fan and I know that we were very good without Harvin and will be fine up until the point he returns. Then we will be outstanding.

    Now having said that, I am getting sick and tired of the high number of players who go to a different team and sandbag it with fake injuries. EVERY team falls victim to it and it’s getting old. It’s about time that different team start taking these players to court and suing them for fraudulent misrepresentation. Teams might not win but it’s time for ALL teams to stop taking this garbage so lackadaisically. Put these players through a long court battle. Use court costs to deplete all their millions of dollars in salary and bonus money they have obtained fraudulently. Shame them in the media. Sue their agents, too.

    Garbage like this continues until teams are finally willing to say, ‘We’ve had enough.” Personally I’ve had enough.

    Wow….. Just out of curiosity, do you and your trailer park brethren have a tribute band for Mark Wahlberg’s old crew called Nickynick and the Junkynuts?

    How about:
    Baldwin, Doug
    Tate, Golden

    You might want to watch a Hawks Game and see who is playing

  24. I realize Seahawks fans are fixated on the Niners, but just because there is a post that is anti-Seahawk does not mean its coming from a Niners fan. Its funny to see fans of other teams come on here, rip the Seattle team, then have a Seahawks fan reply about the Niners.

    My reply was to a er fan, but you only see what you want.

  26. How can you call the trade a bust already…..dude’s only 25 and the Hawks are a young club! Whether he makes a difference this year or not, he’s got lots of years left.

  27. At least he’s only making $17.4 million (12.5 signing, 4.9 salary) this year. It’s amazing that Seahawk fans are blind to this fleecing.

    At least he’ll only steal $13.4 million next year, so you’ve got that going for you.

  28. Hey idiotic Vikings fans (starting to see how smart packers fans are about these tools) how many of the hawks you have got, or players you have drafted with “our picks” have done anything for you? We still destroy you whenever we play, and actually see the playoffs. I Consider the Vikings our charity, we give you thinks so you don’t starve.

  29. Seahawks had 12 draft picks on arguably the deepest roster in football, adding two more would only mean two more players cut. However trading for Harvin adds another dimension to the offense. Yess that will have to wait, but him tate, and rice lined up with beast mode and Russell in the backfield. Excuse me of I don’t see why the seahawks are setting that up. Lol

    Also rice is all good just doesn’t need preseason, he missed a few practices only. And in the mean time the seahawks will use Baldwin and player fully capable of leading the team in receptions like he did before. A creative slot guy who is extremely quick.

    To act like the seahawks are doomed only shows your pure lack of football knowledge and therefore your ability to make any points outside of your homeristic views. Sorry good try.
