The Seattle Seahawks dialed back the schedule for receiver Percy Harvin last week in his recovery from hip surgery in August.
After returning to practice for a couple of days two weeks ago, Harvin’s progress has been slowed after developing soreness in his hip. Harvin underwent a follow-up MRI last week to make sure Harvin wasn’t experiencing any complications from the surgery. Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Harvin is still day-to-day.
“We’re still working to bring him on back,” Carroll said. “I know he had a good rehab today so we’ll see how he does tomorrow.”
Carroll said he still doesn’t know if Harvin has a chance to play this week against the Atlanta Falcons but added “I’m not counting on that.”
This is the final week Harvin can practice while still on the physically unable to perform list. The team has until next Tuesday, Nov. 12, to place Harvin on their active roster or lose him for the remainder of the season. The latter seems incredibly unlikely as Carroll said last week they are willing to carry Harvin on their 53-man roster as a weekly inactive if he’s still not ready to play.
Harvin could ultimately make his Seattle debut against his former team next week as the Minnesota Vikings come to town.
