Pete Carroll: Percy Harvin’s hip feels good

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin may not play this Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game.

But for the first time this season his hip won’t be the reason he’s forced to sit out.

Harvin missed 15 of Seattle’s 16 games in the regular season after having hip surgery on August 1. His only appearance in the regular season came in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings before swelling and fluid build-up in his hip caused Harvin to miss the remaining five games of the regular season.

After two weeks of practice, Harvin was able to return to the field Saturday. Harvin caught three passes for 21 yards in Saturday’s 23-15 victory over the New Orleans Saints before leaving with a concussion in the second quarter.

Head coach Pete Carroll had said last week the team still didn’t know how Harvin’s hip would ultimately respond after going through the rigors of another game. However, Harvin has apparently avoided any further issue after his brief appearance against the Saints.

“He came out very well,” Carroll said. “Yeah we’re way ahead of the game on that one.”

Harvin has to clear concussion protocol in order to Sunday against the 49ers. Whether he manages to do so won’t be known until later this week. But Harvin being able to get through a game without any further issues with his hip is a positive step forward.

    “Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”

    But he doesn’t know what state he is in.

    Carroll vs Harbaugh….battle of the toolbags this weekend.

    Rigors of the game? What did he play like 10 snaps before exiting for the second time? Yeah go ahead and play against one of the best defenses and see what happens.

    I know he’s got the heart and soul for it and he’s hungry for it!
    He’ll suit up!

    I think it’s weird that Pete Carroll is feeling Percy Harvin’s hip.

    Hes gona be a go.

    Super, now how about his head? For all the talk about what a creampuff he supposedly is, he took a couple of nasty hits.

  9. fdugrad says: Jan 14, 2014 1:11 AM

    I think that first hit he took was about the nastiest, most vicious collision I have seen on field in quite a bit of time. The second hit was nothing to sneeze at either. His hip is certainly something to be watched, however I have NO idea how ANYONE would be able to pass a concussion-related protocol just one week after those two blasts. It’s a wonder his head was still on his shoulders after that first smash!

    I wonder what other parts of Percy Harvin Pete Carroll has been feeling ?

    The Saints clearly targeted the heads of all the Seattle receivers – Tate, Baldwin and Harvin especially. The shot that gave Harvin the concussion was when the Saints safety put a forearm shiver into the back of Harvin’s head as they were falling, and it is clearly evident in the television broadcast. Multiple players, including Michael Bennett, called out the Saints in post-game interviews for trying to injure players and taking head-shots on offense and defense.

    Sean Payton clearly learned nothing from his suspension. I’ve lost all respect for Sean Payton and the Saints, and feel better knowing the window has closed on that team, and the best they’ll ever be is a division winner for the foreseeable future. All they’ve been for a while now is playoff fodder for the Seahawks.

    Drew Brees deserves better.

    This dude is a joke

  13. yizudien says: Jan 14, 2014 7:13 AM

    Different team, same Harvin. This guy needs to learn how to play in the NFL. I noticed that Wes Walker is using a different helmet, maybe Harvin should look at investing in one before his head issues prevent him from making the millions in his contract.

  14. tv426 says: Jan 14, 2014 8:00 AM

    This guy is obviously collecting checks. He has no heart and never has. Any excuse to sit on the sidelines will be exploited.

  15. richwizl says: Jan 14, 2014 8:29 AM

    I guess the guy is tough as nails; that’s what happens when you have to grow up with a name like Percy instead of Rocco.

    “Percy Harvin’s hip feels good… and I’ll be giving it back to him when his head gets cleared to play.”

  17. officialgame says: Jan 14, 2014 8:49 AM

    Pete Carol would toss his wheeled chaired Grandmother down a flight of stairs if it meant a win over Frisco next week.

  18. jdorf40 says: Jan 14, 2014 9:30 AM

    Man, talk about no luck. I was shocked he was able to return after the hit that resulted in a PF. He got straight up blasted. The positive is that in the limited number of snaps he’s been in on, he’s made an impact. I do suggest using him as a decoy a little more and working him into it. He and Lynch should draw enough attention that Miller and Willson are open. A lot.

    nothing to worry about, hip is good, head is good, something else will get hurt before halftime…

  20. dtskywalkerjordanshero says: Jan 14, 2014 10:17 AM

    He is a creampuff. They wasted millions on him, but anyone with football knowledge new that when they got him…

  21. tremoluxman says: Jan 14, 2014 11:45 AM

    “Percy who?” Cordarrelle Patterson.

  22. seattlelibtard says: Jan 14, 2014 3:22 PM

    It looked like Saints’ defense were going for injuries. It was rough out there. Bountygate part deux.

  23. mrseaballs says: Jan 15, 2014 3:57 PM

    Sean Payton should of went to jail for the bounty gate and he’s clearly encouraging his players to injure still. It shows he doesn’t have faith in himself or his team to win on a level field and that he puts winning above all else. including players health. He does not belong in sports at any level .
