Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin continues to struggle with a hip problem that kept him out of action until Week 11, and that has kept him out of action since then.
Harvin didn’t practice on Wednesday in advance of a trip to New York to play the Giants, and coach Pete Carroll characterizes Harvin as week-to-week.
“We’re trying to figure this thing out and when he gets out on the practice field, then it’s truly day-to-day and we’ll see how he responds,” Carroll said, via quotes distributed by the team. “So as of today, he’s not going. He won’t be going, he’s rehabbing. That means that he’s running in his rehab work and we have to see if he can tolerate it and come on back and give us a couple of days work. We’ll have to make sure that he’s right. So we’re going to take our time and I know it seems like, ‘How can you take your time when you’re this close to the end of the season?’ But we still have to do that to take care of him.”
Carroll explained that the hip has gotten better and gotten worse.
“It has fluctuated,” Carroll said. “He has gone back and forth, where he’s gotten close and then it got aggravated a little bit. Just hasn’t quite got over the hump where he’s really clear. He has a whole lot of new movement in that hip that he hasn’t had before and he’s trying to become accustomed to that.”
The Seahawks have been fine without him. They’ll be even better if/when he can play — even if the next time he plays is the next time the Seahawks play in MetLife Stadium.
