Another MRI for Harvin, but no new problems

Percy Harvin, Pete Carroll AP

We knew Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin wasn’t coming back this week.

But now we know that there’s no reason to think he won’t come back.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team had Harvin get another MRI this week to make sure there were no setbacks with his surgically repaired hip.

“Yeah the doctors have looked at him. We did another MRI to make sure we were seeing everything right,” Carroll said, in comments distributed by the team. There were no complications and all of that so we’re just bringing him back.”

Harvin didn’t practice this week, after doing some work the week before. The slow approach is deliberate, as there will be times when they need him more than this week’s game against the winless Buccaneers. They have until Nov. 12 to activate him from the physically unable to perform list, but can always add him to the roster and make him inactive each week until they’re sure he’s well.

“We’ve been quiet on him. He’s not playing Sunday, we’ve been quiet with him, he’s a little sore from last week so we’re just making sure that he’ll be ready to go and we won’t waste our opportunity with him on the practice field. . . .

“If he was on our team and was banged up, we certainly wouldn’t mind keeping him as one of the inactives. If that’s what it winds up a few weeks from now that’s what it is. We’re hoping to get him back. He was fine a week ago and was ready to go it was just the wear and tear of the comeback just got to him a little bit so we just needed to slow him down.”

Running back Marshawn Lynch returned to practice Friday after taking a few days off, but Carroll said he’d be fine for Sunday.

That should suffice, and give Harvin all the time he needs.

    What does it matter ? The first hard hit that Harvin takes in his first game back will start his “migraines” again and he’ll be done for the rest of the season.

    How many receptions does he have as a Seahawk? Bad trade.

    All you lavender Larry toads who keep insisting the vikqueens came out ahead on this trade are, as usual, delusional. Seattle 7-1, vikqeens 1-6. Stats not lie. Only lavender Larry toads do.

    Yes, Percy has had several injuries in his career. He has not missed a game due to a migraine since early in the 2010 season.

    As long as the two games are our home game against the Vikings (not that we’d need him) and in the Superbowl I’m cool with it.

    P.S. enjoy your stud quarterback.

    How many wins did Harvin contribute to?

    Vikings got draft picks, Seahawks got a consistently hurt player.

    Regardless of TEAM STATS, the Vikings did make out quite well in this trade.

    The Seahawks took him knowing his injury history bc they have a stacked team and just need him for their deep playoff run. Looks even smarter after Rice goes down.

    Hes amazing athlete and very fun to watch. As a fan of a NFC playoff team I still want to see him out there bc he is electrifying.

    Until all this bitterness came out this season I didn’t even realize the Vikings had a fan base. I guess it shows what one good year w Favre can do to bamdwagoners.

    Okay with that……..Conference Championship and SB would be fine.

    Seahawks , Super Bowl, sort of like Percy Harvin being an asset. Same thing, not happening.

  11. beastmode5150 says: Nov 1, 2013 7:18 PM

    7-1

  12. beastmode5150 says: Nov 1, 2013 7:19 PM

    So insane, those draft picks you got from us, you know those players will be good?

    Aren’t you missing your Mensa meeting tonight?

    Consistently hurt? Harvin missed three games total his first three years.

    Argue the merits of the trade, fine, but making stuff up doesn’t help your case.

  15. ledh28 says: Nov 1, 2013 8:02 PM

    im not sure how this is a bad trade yet. if he never plays a snap then ya shame on the hawks but cmon you people need to be real patterson has like 13 catches and a couple return tds for the vikings who in reality replaced harvin. im pretty sure when percy gets back he will easily top those marks. so wether or not harvin has played what have those draft picks got you yet except a 1 win season. even if harvin never plays hawks are still gonna make the playoffs and vikings will be at home watching them on their couch.

    It’s laughable to hear Viking fans talking like they got better end of the Harvin trade deal…. Really it’s inconclusive at this point. And if they did their record sure doesn’t show it. Fact is Patterson has done very little to contribute to the passing game and I’m sure , if the vikes had any chance of making the playoffs, they would much rather have Harvin back…..not that they have anyone who could complete a pass to him.

  17. FlashPatterson says: Nov 1, 2013 8:43 PM

    Ok, we don’t know who got the better deal in the Harvin trade yet. Of course as of today, the Vikings did, they have a starting CB in Xavier Rhodes and Harvin hasn’t played a snap yet. But we really won’t know who got the better deal for a long time. Harvin as a player is HOF worthy, but he’s injury prone. Harvin as a person is worse than Bryant Mckinne.

    This guy’s always hurt. Take it from a Vikings fan. Seattle got hosed in that trade.

  19. warmcoorslight says: Nov 1, 2013 9:01 PM

    Hey Flash, Xavier Rhodes is a starter in one of the worst secondaries in the league. And just knowing what Harvin is capable of doing for an offense, once healthy, is far more valuable than a player who is only a starter because he plays for the Vikings.

    Seeing that you’re convinced the vikqueens made out so well on the trade and you asked the question of Harvin’s contribution then the better question is how many wins did the MN draft picks contribute to?

    Honestly, I wouldn’t want Percy back if we were playoff bound. I’d rather have Patterson because he makes me say things like, “Percy who??”. As for our stud QBs, Ponder and Freeman, they can keep rotating and we’ll keep Cassel who got us our only win, on the bench, then we’ll draft Johnny Arrogant next year, after we’ve cleaned house. It’s all great, it’s all great.

    Terrible trade but hasn’t cause problems yet.

  23. mediasloppy says: Nov 2, 2013 1:32 AM

    Harvin is a stud and should be a huge asset. As a Vikings fan my knock on him is attitude. He’s got thin skin and has made plenty of personal fouls after plays. The other knock is he causes a lot of false starts by being in the wrong spot when the ball snaps.

    Good luck with him and give him the ball or face his wrath…

  24. surfinbird1 says: Nov 2, 2013 8:48 AM

    All these “no news updates” on Percy are givin me a headache.

  25. claymus1 says: Nov 2, 2013 7:43 PM

    Seattle’s locker room is way too strong to let any one player mess it up. I am sure Golden got read from the book regarding his antics of last week..Not concerned….in the least! O line woes..yeah, that concerns me more..Darrel Bevell’s play calling…more yet. We will see! Go Hawks!!

  26. dacktle49 says: Nov 3, 2013 5:11 PM

    Hey Flashpatterson Harvin a HOF?? That’s hilarious thanks for the laugh.
