Percy Harvin doubtful for Monday night

AP

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.

  1. The Vikings would have appeared to have fleeced the Seahawks but looking at how the Vikings draft picks have turned out thus far, I really can’t say that. I’d say it’s a push at this point.

  2. Ok. Before all the jokes come rolling in, I for one would like to stop with acquiring Vikings players.
    Plus, In free agency we typically make big moves for big name receivers. Branch, housh, rice, harvin- none of which panned out yet.
    I think Monday’s game will be difficult, but this injury seems like it will cause a negative impact.
    Extend Tate, and draft another reciever to replace rice.

  3. The Minnesota Vikings have now been decided as the symbol of greatness. The Minnesota Vikings are a franchise that has dominated for decades with a .538 overall winning percentage to prove it, ranked #3 in the league worldwide. The NFL has recently scammed the Vikings out of multiple Super Bowl rings because they envy our greatness, jealousy like this prevents the Vikings from this, but we will succeed. The impending Vikings dynasty will soon follow, multiple Super Bowl rings will be coming our way and our greatness will be shown worldwide.

    Many of you so called “haters” will say this is not true, but haters are known to envy greatness. Martin Luther King is a great example of a person who resembles the Vikings organization, he changed the world and was hated for it, but people recognize him for greatness

    The Minnesota Vikings are the prototypical franchise. We are the Lambourghini of cars, the iPhones of cellular devices, The Kate Uptons of females, and our presence can be felt worldwide by our profound greatness. We are the boat floating proudly on your favorite teams tears, sailing to multiple championships.

  4. “I’d say it’s a push at this point.”

    Lol, Are you serious? One catch and one kick return for a 1st, a 3rd and a 7th, so far? You have a weird idea of a “push”.

  5. Next headline we’ll see is Harvin to have “clean up” procedure. Then it will be c ya next year. Then it will all repeat itself. Should have went to Browner or Sherman for some PED’s to heal. Ice up son.

    Um…no. You might want to take another look at who the Vikings drafted. Just because their QB stinks, doesn’t mean their draft choices have performed poorly. Or do you consider two plays out of Harvin to be better? BTW: Harvin’s replacement at kickoff returns is #1 in the NFL this year. Is there something better than #1?

  7. Yes, comparing the production of a few rookies against at 5 yr vet is a fair comparison. Your astute observation might hold water if in 4 yrs the rookies are still not producing.

  8. I have no dog in this question about the Vikes fleecing the Hawks on this trade. It seems as though it is too early to tell, JUST like it was too early to put Harvin into the lineup. Hawks should have waited at LEAST until the playoffs, if not next year.

  9. The Vikings fleeced the Seahawks in that trade, Xavier Rhodes looks like the next shutdown CB even considering his first year struggles that every rookie CB has (including Darelle Revis, Patrick Peterson, etc. ) We also get a 3rd round pick in the next draft and avoid paying Percy a 60$ Million dollar contract for someone who’s so injury prone

  10. No problem up there in Seattle ,Percy. I’m sure Peter Cheater has a large supply of PED’s. Just
    get some and you’ll be to good to go !

    Go Cheathawks!!

  11. Though, as far as the trade goes, I disagree, I wouldn’t call it a push at this point. That’s not to say it won’t be a push or that it won’t favor the Hawks in the future. Harvin is only 25, a lot of football ahead of him. At this point, however, you can’t call it a push.

  12. Ok Vikings fans, you deserve this one. Hawk season ticket holder here, Harvin is obviously a complete Wuss. The “load of the game” has him “still sore” but according g to Carroll he can “run and cut just fine”. Unreal…

  13. Let me get this straight : he plays against the Vikes in a game the Seahawks win if they have no receivers then sits out 9-2 New Orleans?? Nice planning Pete!

  14. Wow. The intelligence of pftpoet. We have harvin for 5 and half more years, not just the first twelve weeks of the season. We’re winning without harvin, and will use him In the postseason for Are run.
    Plus,
    How are those draft picks working out for ya?
    I believe its 2-8-1

  15. As a vikes fan, I’m glad to see that backstabber gone. But I feel for you hawks fans who have to have the percy poison in their locker room.

    Good luck to the rest of the seahawks though, you guys have a helluva team.

  16. More and more backpedaling talk from the fans again, 11 mil a year and 3 draft picks including a 1st rd for a guy to ride the bench and rack up injuries. At least Mike Wallace was able to play.

  17. They let him play against the Vikings (a game they didn’t need him for) because, lets face it, Harvin wanted to stick it to his old team. Problem is, he clearly wasn’t ready to return and now they will be without him for a game they really need him for. It will be worse yet if letting him play that game keeps him out down the stretch.

  18. Seriously, hip injuries are nothing to fool around with and in some ways much worse than a knee or other lower leg injury. Percy could be risking needing an implant as he gets older. Better to wait it out and test it slowly over time. If it doesn’t heal there is no shame in having to pack it in.

  19. they’ve been fine without him all year … though I must say it makes me breathe a little easier if he’s out Monday …

    The Minnesota Vikings have now been decided as the symbol of crapiness. The Minnesota Vikings are a franchise that is 0-4 in Superbowls, 19-27 in playoffs , and never won a championship. The NFL has never scammed the Vikings out of Super Bowl rings because they just plain suck, jealousy like this exist only in Vikings fans heads, and we will never succeed. The imploding Vikings will never have a dynasty, multiple Super Bowl rings will be coming anywhere but here, greatness will be shown the door.

    Many of you so called “delusional Vikings fans” will say this is not true, but realist are known to know crap when they see it. Martin Luther King is a great example of a person who bears absolutely no resemblance to the Vikings organization, why his name is even mentioned here is beyond me.

    The Minnesota Vikings are the prototypical disaster of a franchise. We are the Yugo of cars, the Bricks of cellular devices, The Phillis Dillers of females, and our presence can be smelled worldwide by our profound stench. We are the boat sinking sadly on our poor fans tears, sailing to insignificance.

  22. Carroll said he would be listed as doubtful, but in the same sentence said that they would take it all the way until Monday which means game time decision. You can tell its a “Smoke Screen” if you listen to the interview.

  23. pftpoet – it is a sad day when you compare MLK to the purple. Living in the Twin Cities and married to a Vikings fan, I understand the frustrations with no SB wins. You might want to quit blaming the NFL or conspiracy theories as to why this organization is in this situation. It is at best dysfunctional; the best thing the Wilfs can do is clean house and start over…

    “You’re obviously very new to football. Welcome”

    Yeah man, come on, everyone knows the niners are better than the cardinals, switch the top two, even all the die hard Seahawks fans of a year and a half know that

  25. Do these trades EVER work out?

    I feel like big time players moving to a new offense don’t ever really produce like they did with their first team. Peyton is an obv success story example but then again…he’s Peyton.

    The Vikes makes out here. Cpatterson is going to be sick and worth the the price alone in a few years while Percy may never again be the same guy.

    I know…::fart::

  26. Did you just say Xavier Rhodes is the next shut down corner? Wow And 26 other people liked that..

    Do you guys even watch these games? If Rhodes isn’t getting beat, he has been getting pass interference calls. Vikings rank 30th vs the pass.

    Patrick Peterson had a solid rookie year 3 picks if I remember right and a number of KR/PR. Revis did not struggle as a rookie neither did Sherman. The Viking beatdown was so bad Seattle 2nd/3rd string offense and defense finished off last weeks game.

  27. people are surprised? he has amazing ability! but the best ability is availability and that he rarely has.

  28. I question anyone’s football IQ who think the Vikings didn’t win in this deal. They got a few years out of Harvin and then traded him for picks. It made sense to get rid of him not just because he was a cancer and injury prone but because their QB situation was and is questionable. It’s debatable how the Vikings faired when it came to using those draft picks. It won’t be set in stone for a few years as far as the picks but so far Patterson looks to be just as good if not better than Percy, and Rhodes has shown flashes at CB in the reps he’s gotten. The only question mark is Floyd who has looked pretty solid as well but has had limited reps. On the Seahawks side, they got a receiver who is getting paid a truck load of money to recover from injury and is proven to be extremely injury prone. Right now it truly looks like the Vikings won this deal and as time goes by I’m sure they will still be the winner. Just think, the seahawks could have held on to their picks, drafted patterson, and the Vikings probably would have lost Harvin. Instead they trade multiple picks for a player who hasn’t seen the season this year.

  29. Harvin will play. And he will make big plays. That’s what he does. THAT’S ALL HE DOES!

    Either way, the Seahawks will win comfortably.

  30. They will be fine, can’t miss what you never had. The fact is he’s still in his prime and even if he needs the whole year to recover and balls out next year it was still a good deal. Id love to say this will sent them in a tail spin but the fact is they havnt needed him to get where they are so far.

  31. can the trade just be good for both sides? He wasn’t gonna resign and Sea like SF has a lot of depth and half the draft picks get cut anyways. Its possible that no one fleeced anyone and was good for both sides

  32. @seatownballers:

    I said two weeks ago you guys should stop acquiring vikings players and the majority of your fanbase vehemently denied this. Your team is great. The worst parts of your team are the former Vikings players. Its ok Seahawks fans, you can admit you have some sucky parts of your team, it’s still much better than the Vikings as of now (and arguably every other team, no one is perfect). So glad we got rid of this guy. Does anyone else think Percy looks smaller this year? Maybe it was the dark tops and dark pants but he looked much less muscular than last year.

  33. Harvin is selfish.. he rather try to show up his former team then help his current one in the big picture

  34. Harvin is a difference maker and a guy you want in good health when the playoffs start. No need to risk him now if he is not 100%. He is the type of player that will put the Seahawks over the top. Imagine Golden Tate with strength, speed and better hands…

    Pay no mind to Vikings fans claiming victory in the Harvin trade… They are 2-8-1 this year… If they benefitted so much from that trade their record sure doesn’t provide much evidence.

  35. The reason the trade is a push thus far is because Percy is going to be playing on this team for multiple years after this one. As to are the players the Vikings drafted. We know what Harvin can do on the field.

    Also, to the guy that said Patterson is number 1 in kick return or whatnot, um okay? He definitely hasn’t shown to be a game changing RECEIVER. At least we all know that Harvin is when he’s on the field.

    He’s suffering inflammation as a result of being back in action for the first time after surgery. It happens. The Percy things is not a long-term concern. He has some inflammation that isn’t responding to meds. It happens.

  36. twesty85, You think Patterson has looked just as good as Harvin? Are you insane? Seriously man…
    Patterson has 29 receptions for 250 yards 12 first downs and a TD… Percy’s rookie year he had 60 receptions for 790 yards with 42 first downs and 6 TDs… As kick returners they basically have similar stats… Patterson is far less intelligent than Harvin in that area though… The Vikings never started out inside their own 5 because Harvin fumbled a kickoff out of bounds for example.

    So now tell me exactly how Patterson has even come close to matching Harvin as a player… I’m guessing you just say that because it makes you feel better but the reality is the Vikings are a 2 win team in a bad division that can’t even beat a broken down Green Bay team playing without their franchise QB…

  39. If this isn’t a smoke screen by Carroll, then it was incredibly stupid to bring Harvin back for the Vikings game. Sure he wanted to play against his former team, but to risk him having to sit out the Saints game was dumb. The Seahawks could have beat the Vikings with me and my buddies playing receiver. The Saints won’t be a gimme game though. Neither will the 49ers at Candlestick. We’ll see. As a Seahawk fan, I’m not too proud to say that we could really use him in these next 2 games and it makes me a little nervous that he’s experiencing a setback.

    Yeah man, come on, everyone knows the niners are better than the cardinals, switch the top two, even all the die hard Seahawks fans of a year and a half know that.
    *****
    And the die hard 9er fans of the past 2.5 years are all over the place. What’s he talking about? Prior to 2011 the 9ers were lost in space for 10 years.

  41. HA! That didn’t take long. Then again, maybe I should wait on that comment since Crabtree is returning this week and it’s possible someone will slap me right back in the face with that comment a week from now.

  42. Harvin for those picks plus the HUGE contract!! Well at least he’ll be able to cover the cost of hip replacement surgery when he’s 37. In the meantime take an Advil and count count your cash S-O-F-T!

    In related news….Michael Crabtree will be making his season debut at the Stick!! NINERS!!!

  43. @brocklanders:

    Your seriously comparing pattersons 11 games with 3 different (all terrible) starting qbs, and with coaches that refuse to try and give him the ball up until recently, to Percy Harvins 16 game rookie season with Brett favres near MVP season throwing him the ball? Nice dude. Way to twist things into the way you want to see them.

  44. “Top teams in the NFC West:
    1. Cardinals
    2. 49ers
    3. Seahawks
    4. Rams”

    Um wut?

    As a Niner fan I have to slightly disagree with this assment. Unless something drastic changes over the best few weeks, the Seahawks are clearly the top team in the west.

    After that, the Niners and Cards are basically tied until week 17 unless one of us drops a few games.

    The Rams are solid but no way to look at them as anything but last at the moment. Going forward, if Bradford can stay healthy and their draft picks continue to progress they could be as competitive as anyone for the division.

    But for now it’s:

    1. Hawks
    2. Niners (who beat the Cards once)
    3. Cards
    4. Rams

    Not unlike the standings, which in this case, are actually a pretty good barometer of who is the best team in the division.

  45. I read some people pointing to the Vikings 3 1st round picks. A little FYI, Seattle traded 1 1st – 25th overall pick, 7th round pick and a 2014 – 3rd round pick.

    Trying to point at Floyd, Patterson & Rhodes as the reason they are winners of the trade is clearly incorrect.

  46. Typical Harvin. Pushes to get back for the revenge game against the Vikings without considering that maybe he and the team would be better off if he geared up for a return against the Saints after a bye. His competitiveness is admirable but sometimes it gets the better of him.

  47. Love how the obvious, right in front of them seems to elude the immature Whiners. IF, Pete were doling out PED’s like you claim, Harvin wouldn’t have the soreness and would be playing. If Pete, were dealing in HGH, like you claim, Harvin wouldn’t have been out as long as he was, and that goes for Okung and Breno as well. That they’ve all mended in the normal times for their respective injuries, gives the lie to those, who being insecure about their own teams, like to throw the “cheater” label at the Hawks.

    “We are the boat floating proudly…”

    ——————————————-

    Most real Vikings fans avoid mentioning boats.

  49. Seahawks are one of the best teams in the league and don’t really need this guy, but no way you call this trade with the vikes a push. Randy Moss is less of a distraction, and he set the bar high.

    #TedThoughtSenecaWasTheAnswer

  50. Seahawks got to 10-1 without him, so whatever. But, if he doesn’t contribute by the time the Seahawks win the Super Bowl in February 2014, they might want to think about cutting their losses.

  51. At 9-1 headed into a home game vs. Minnesota it makes absolutely no sense why Seattle decided to play Percy Harvin with a bye week on the horizon. Why, because he used to play for the Vikings and wanted to stick it to them? That is just dumb, and now look! He should be making his season debut today, fresh off a bye week with a team that is 11-1! Just sounds like Harvin may have jumped the gun a his return.
