Percy Harvin’s injured hip caused him to miss the first 10 games of the season, and now Harvin has managed to play in just one game before more concerns are being raised about whether his hip can hold up.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said today that Harvin will be listed as doubtful and will most likely miss the Seahawks’ big Monday night game against the Saints. Via PFT’s Curtis Crabtree, Carroll said Harvin is sore and hasn’t been able to respond after the game against the Vikings, when Harvin made his Seahawks debut and caught one pass for 17 yards and returned one kickoff for 58 yards.
Carroll indicated that Harvin’s issue is just soreness, and not something structurally wrong with the hip. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Harvin’s hip flared up again, and he’s seeing doctors today.
When healthy, Harvin is one of the NFL’s most dynamic playmakers. But the Seahawks would like to see him get healthy enough to play in more than one consecutive game.
