If the Seahawks win the Super Bowl, they’ll most likely be doing it without receiver Percy Harvin.
Per a league source, Harvin could be landing on injured reserve as soon as Monday.
Coach Pete Carroll already has hinted at the possibility of Harvin landing on IR. When cornerback Walter Thurmond was activated following a four-game suspension, however, the team cut cornerback Perrish Cox in lieu of shelving Harvin.
At one point, the Seahawks had hoped to bring Harvin back for one or more playoff games. But with Harvin unable to practice following an aggravation of the hip condition that resulted in August surgery, the Seahawks don’t want to risk further injury to Harvin if he plays without being able to practice.
If Harvin is done, he will finish his first season with the Seahawks with one game appearance (against the Vikings) and one catch, for 17 yards.
