Percy Harvin officially inactive for Seahawks against Saints

As expected, wide receiver Percy Harvin is officially inactive for Seattle with lingering soreness in his surgically repaired hip.

Harvin didn’t practice for Seattle this week after appearing in his first game with the team two weeks ago against the Minnesota Vikings. Harvin was listed as doubtful to play on Saturday and is now officially on a spectator for Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

Also out for Seattle is cornerback Brandon Browner. While Browner is still awaiting a decision on an appeal of his impending suspension of a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy, it’s a groin injury that is keeping him off the field against New Orleans.

Other inactives for Seattle include: running back Christine Michael, tackle Michael Bowie, guard Caylin Hauptmann, defensive end Benson Mayowa and defensive tackle Jordan Hill.

The Saints also will be missing a pair of players due to injury. New Orleans had listed defensive end Glenn Foster and linebacker Keyunta Dawson as questionable heading into tonight’s game. Both are officially inactive for the Saints. Foster did not practice all week with a knee injury while Dawson appeared on the injury report for the first time on Saturday with a calf injury.

They are joined by quarterback Ryan Griffin, running back Khiry Robinson, cornerback Trevin Wade, tackle Terron Armstead and wide receiver Nick Toon as the additional inactive for the Saints.

  1. When will the Seahawks finally admit the Vikings fleeced them in the trade.

    $60 million dollar contract for a reciever who hasn’t even played this season, and won’t in future seasons.

    While the Vikings came away as studs acquiring 3 future all-pros with their rookies and another 3rd round pick this year

    Sucks to suck.

  2. This guy should be forced to return part of his pay checks to the Vikings AND Seahawks! In 5 years when you look up worthless in the dictionary…Percy’s photo will appear!

  3. No real surprise.

    Percy plays when he wants to play.

    Last year he missed most of the season with an ankle sprain.

  4. The problem is the hip is a very concerning injury to have/recover from.

    WHEN HEALTHY, Percy is a stud.

    Problem is, for $60 mil., it will become obvious that he is way overpaid for playing a few games this year, and half the year next year.

    Right now, Seattle isn’t paying squat for Wilson, as he was a 2nd rounder. That will change int wo years, and cap constraints happen with Wilson’s contract and Percy’s heavy cap hit.

    Better win NOW Seattle, as Wilson will be paid the obligatory 15-20 milion per year range ala Romo, Flacco,and Ryan in 2 years, and the others want paid as well.

    That’s when things change…….

  5. I’m completely shocked that I haven’t seen or read any negative reaction to the fact that the Seahawks decided that on Harvin’s 1st game back from such a serious injury, they thought it would be a good idea to have him returning kicks/punts. That makes zero sense for a guy you would think should be eased back into the lineup on a snap count.

  6. Well isn’t that just weird, Percy got paid and now he is doing everything he can to make sure he is absolutely 100% before giving it another go. I used to respect his toughness but after his drama last year with the Vikes and then eventually getting his way, getting paid and now essentially bailing on his new team, I’ve lost all respect for him.
