Harvin goes to regular-season PUP list

Harvin Getty Images

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.

    What a headache…

  2. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Aug 27, 2013 4:29 PM

    I hope this injury doesn’t prevent Percy from playfully tossing barbells at his coaches.

  3. sactown9er916 says: Aug 27, 2013 4:29 PM

    Sarcasm aside… What did they give up for him again? I forget. Is Rice starting Week 1 with Tate? That’d be huge if Harvin didn’t pan out.

  4. filthymcnasty1 says: Aug 27, 2013 4:32 PM

    Harvin will be back and better than ever, or my name isn’t Lance Armstrong.

  5. whatwhat2013 says: Aug 27, 2013 4:38 PM

    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.’

  6. longcutskolvikes says: Aug 27, 2013 4:39 PM

    I hope Percy gets back to his old form next year. He’s unquestionably one of the Vikings I enjoyed watching most.

  7. bubbybrister/shovelpass says: Aug 27, 2013 4:39 PM

    …at least he did “the same thing everyday” at practice before this news.

  8. aaroncurryisbust says: Aug 27, 2013 4:39 PM

    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.

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

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

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

  20. chillyball says: Aug 27, 2013 4:56 PM

    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.

    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.

    I can’t believe the Seahawks accepted that trade. The Vikings already won the trade.

    I wonder if Harvin will even play this year…

  27. scmems07 says: Aug 27, 2013 5:21 PM

    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

  28. sweetnlow44 says: Aug 27, 2013 5:27 PM

    Love all the hate! Keep it coming!!

  29. macneil4025 says: Aug 27, 2013 5:33 PM

    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!

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

  31. osiris33 says: Aug 27, 2013 5:36 PM

    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

  32. jdmpls says: Aug 27, 2013 5:43 PM

    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?

  33. scoobaj says: Aug 27, 2013 5:44 PM

    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

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

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

  40. mrwalterisgod says: Aug 27, 2013 6:15 PM

    Lol. Do the Viking fans need to be reminded that Christian Ponder is their QB?

    Even after that trade, your team is nothing.

    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! 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  54. anygivensundayfan says: Aug 27, 2013 9:43 PM

    A fresh Harvin for the end of the season and into the playoffs? Yes, please!

  55. skolvikes says: Aug 27, 2013 10:54 PM

    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.

  56. beastmode5150 says: Aug 27, 2013 11:05 PM

    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.

  58. allidoiswin55 says: Aug 27, 2013 11:28 PM

    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.
