Percy Harvin limps off the Seahawks practice field

Getty Images

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before.

Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin is apparently injured in training camp.

Per Mike Sando of, Harvin just limped off the field, moving slowly after an apparent ankle injury.

The Seahawks were pleased to see him healthy in camp, and kept the training wheels on him through the early stages of camp.

While there’s no immediate word on his condition, it has to give the Seahawks the shakes, considering they gave up a first-round pick and change, and then gave him a $67 million contract ($25.5 million guaranteed), and he responded by playing 68 snaps last season.

UPDATE 2:56 p.m. ET: Per Sando, Harvin walked to the locker room with a slight limp, but jogged back onto the practice field about 20 minutes later.

So maybe he’s not fragile.

    The Minnesota Vikings obliterated Seattle in the trade last year.

    Cordarrelle Patterson > Percy Harvin.

    Plus we don’t have to overpay him $9 million dollars a year.

    The Minnesota Vikings > Seahawks.

    We are better than you in every way.

    Let the hating 12th women comments begin.

    and cold water is cold…

  4. dbara43 says: Aug 12, 2014 2:54 PM

    Yeah we won the Super Bowl pretty much without him, so the shakes are not something we engage in much.

  5. mrwalterisgod says: Aug 12, 2014 2:54 PM

    He got cleated in the ankle. You’d limp too.

  6. hillbillyjim says: Aug 12, 2014 2:56 PM

    Boy that Super Bowl ring he has is nice and shiny.

  7. rainponcho87 says: Aug 12, 2014 2:58 PM

    He may be ok this time, but wow he just won’t be a guy you can count on to be there for 16 games. He is flavoring in an offense, not a main course.

  8. mathomp3 says: Aug 12, 2014 2:58 PM

    He is back on the field, good to go.

  9. bondsncruz says: Aug 12, 2014 2:58 PM

    I just expect Harvin to get hurt every season. Doesn’t everybody?

  10. cartire says: Aug 12, 2014 2:59 PM

    Hes back out on the field playing…..

    Hold the trigger quick draw mcgraw.

  11. iluvbears says: Aug 12, 2014 2:59 PM

    Sure am glad the Vikings dumped him when they had the chance. Now he’s Seattle’s problem.

  12. buffaloisadumpsterandtheirfansaremorons says: Aug 12, 2014 2:59 PM

    “Get the syringes!” says Pete Carroll and team physicians.

  13. patsbrat says: Aug 12, 2014 3:00 PM

    Between migraines and injuries Harvin does seem to miss a lot of playing time. Makes me wonder who has the worst luck with repeated medical issues?

    The top 3 I can think of are (in no particular order):


    Too bad 2 of them are Patriots…

  14. In Teddy We Trust says: Aug 12, 2014 3:00 PM

    Correction: The Seahawks gave up a first-round pick, a third-round pick, and a seventh-round pick, in addition to $67 million.

  15. mlmike40 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:00 PM

    I like Percy but god damn dude just cannot stay healthy.

  16. Steeler Nation is so far above you and your lowly franchise. We built this league. Pittsburgh's three rivers are made from the tears of our opponents. Bow to your supreme overlords. says: Aug 12, 2014 3:04 PM


  17. slugbaitspace says: Aug 12, 2014 3:04 PM

    Late last season, everybody commented, “He hasn’t been playing, he’s always injured, he always has headaches, Seahawks got fleeced by the Vikings!”

    None of that mattered while watching the Super Bowl…

  18. fumblenuts says: Aug 12, 2014 3:04 PM

    “Harvin walked to the locker room with a slight limp, but jogged back onto the practice field about 20 minutes later.”

    Nothing to see here….move along haters.


  19. bondsncruz says: Aug 12, 2014 3:04 PM

    I agree. Cordarrelle Patterson is definitely better than Harvin. Not a fan of either team but the Vikings clearly bent the Seahawks over in that deal.

  20. ariani1985 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:05 PM

    This guy is so soft he was destined to be a Packer!!!

  21. bucrightoff says: Aug 12, 2014 3:05 PM

    Still has more Super Bowls than the Vikings franchise will ever win in 1,000 years #loserfranchise

  22. pantherpro says: Aug 12, 2014 3:05 PM

    Percy you are softer than 12th man fan in rainy, dreary Seattle. Your run was short and not so sweet

  23. reesesteel23 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:08 PM

    Percy Harvin vs Gronk.

    Who is more fragile?

  24. rrhoe says: Aug 12, 2014 3:11 PM

    Yeah,this should last the whole season,some things never change.

  25. purpleguy says: Aug 12, 2014 3:12 PM

    Staying healthy is a skill too.

  26. qdog112 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:12 PM

    Hurt ankle in camp? Really? Hasn’t Manning taught you anything about regular season stats?

    He could just wait to come back for the Denver game or maybe the Super Bowl again. I mean his injury hurt them so much last year.

  27. fugginswheat says: Aug 12, 2014 3:15 PM


  28. says: Aug 12, 2014 3:17 PM

    It might be a positive overall for fantasy football owners, considering it’s August 11 and any ankle injury is going to be healed by September 7. That would prevent him from doing something more serious to himself, like a knee. Still, it is unsettling for those of us pumping him as a good value in the 4th round…

  29. zenrooster says: Aug 12, 2014 3:18 PM

    Meh. Who cares? Hawks won a SB without him.
    And i forgot, the vikes have won dozens of games with and without him. So for the record.

    Harvin on the seahawks bench >>>>> A fully healthy Harvin on the Vikings.

  30. summitmech says: Aug 12, 2014 3:19 PM


    (I heard this before)

  31. diveleft says: Aug 12, 2014 3:23 PM

    This guy has the injury bug like it was ebola.

  32. sameer1138 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:23 PM

    Anyone can jog back onto the field after a cortisone shot (no, I have no inside info; I am just ass-u-me-ing that that’s why he went into the locker room and emerged suddenly healed). The question, though, is whether there’s real damage. A steroid shot won’t heal you; and will actually make you more likely to hurt yourself longterm. And since this is Percy Harvin, it almost definitely IS real damage that he will exacerbate by playing on it.

    I predict he plays in, max, 8 games this season.

  33. ringheadcrusher says: Aug 12, 2014 3:25 PM

    This is my shocked face


  34. vikes89allday says: Aug 12, 2014 3:26 PM

    He’s a freak but weak

  35. gpenpilot says: Aug 12, 2014 3:26 PM

    Toridol, you did it again.

  36. fwippel says: Aug 12, 2014 3:29 PM

    Shocking…he’s fragile, mobile and hostile.

  37. woodrree7 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:34 PM

    Man! This guy is made of glass…

  38. islandfocus2 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:40 PM

    It’s just a chip in the glass

  39. darkneptune73 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:42 PM

    Just don’t throw a skittle at Harvin’s head or else he’ll suffer a concussion.

  40. ufostomper says: Aug 12, 2014 3:45 PM

    Why would he get a cortisone shot to come back to practice?

  41. tap79 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:45 PM

    The guy twisted his ankle a bit and ran back out on the field to finish practice…. You are going to get bumped up playing football it happens.

    This article was written for all the haters and the wishful thinking losers who can only hope to stop the hawks by injury..

    Sorry ladies it is not going to happen rePete is immanent…. SO JUST DEAL WITH IT ALREADY.

  42. kylexitron says: Aug 12, 2014 3:49 PM

    Actually Percy got stepped on and was bleeding. Huge story great work pft.

  43. realitycheckbaby says: Aug 12, 2014 3:49 PM

    What’s that smell?


    If Harvin plays 8 games Hawks take out Miami’s undefeated record.

  44. 23rdusernameused says: Aug 12, 2014 3:51 PM


    hurt Harvin!

  45. peytons5head says: Aug 12, 2014 3:53 PM

    Harvin will be back on the sidelines chewin bubble gum with PEDs in it with Pete the cheat before you know it.

  46. guitarfreak21 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:55 PM

    Bahahaha! Harvin shudders every time he sees the written instructions, “In case of emergency, break glass” because he thinks it means HIM! #LAWLWAYS

  47. linemanguy74 says: Aug 12, 2014 3:56 PM

    What a shock,he is never hurt

  48. seatownballers says: Aug 12, 2014 3:58 PM

    Listed as healthy now. :p

  49. peytons5head says: Aug 12, 2014 4:15 PM

    Percy, hurt? No way!!! Drew Brees wants an explanation

  50. evangelcomes says: Aug 12, 2014 4:23 PM

    Diehard Vikings fan, mourned the Harvin trade, but the guy is a beast, not soft at all. Glad to have CP, but miss the kid for real!

  51. pftcoachmen says: Aug 12, 2014 4:26 PM

    He’ll appear in 10 games. Miss 6.

    Like usual.

  52. Shinnbone says: Aug 12, 2014 4:26 PM

    She’s hurt again?

  53. RegisHawk says: Aug 12, 2014 4:31 PM

    a) You boys are just looking for things to jump on…get a bean-bag chair.

    b) Seahawks official statement on the Lynch deal is “It’s bogus”. Deal with it.

    c) Vikings suck.

  54. mediasloppy says: Aug 12, 2014 4:34 PM

    Percy is often injured, but wants to play. He played in plenty of games for the Vikings while missing all kinds of practice time. That’s my biggest knock on this guy.
    I see he made back to Practice today which is a good thing. Hopefully he’ll break the trend…

  55. jayhawk777 says: Aug 12, 2014 4:41 PM

    Why the talk of Patterson? He was never figured into this deal.

    The Vikings selected Rhodes and picked up Jerick McKinnon this season as the 3rd rdr.

    Traded Percy Harvin to Seahawks for 2013 first round pick (#25-Xavier Rhodes), 2013 seventh round pick (#214-Travis Bond), 2014 third round pick (#96-Jerick McKinnon) on 2013-03-11

    Just because Patterson was picked at #29, the Hawks didn’t need a rookie WR. They needed a burner that could run jet sweeps in the SB and return kick off returns for TD’s in the SB and hoist a Lombardi. Not a rookie WR that wasn’t guaranteed to even be there and is part of a 10 year rebuild.

    Vikings didn’t win this trade at all. Heck, Hawks then beat the Vikings in the trade down so Vikes could draft Bridgefodder. C Marsh has all – pro written all over him.

    Repeat. Vikings did not draft Patterson with the Percy Harvin selection. one more time… 😉

  56. sbdt says: Aug 12, 2014 4:42 PM

    Is Percy Harvin being hurt even news anymore?

  57. ragnarthemagnificent says: Aug 12, 2014 5:13 PM

    Let Percy Smoke!

  58. dzimas61 says: Aug 12, 2014 5:16 PM

    He could stub his toe and the sports rags would pick up the story.

  59. carbonriver says: Aug 12, 2014 5:22 PM

    Wow PFT haters, don’t get too excited there. Guy gets stepped on with cleats in practice and takes a few minutes to clean out the wound and it is now breaking news.

    I guess they have to give Viking fans something to get excited about no matter how petty. The one good thing about baseball is at least the AAA teams don’t whine when their players get called up and win it all.

  60. higheriqthanyou says: Aug 12, 2014 5:23 PM

    He’ll appear in 10 games. Miss 6.

    Like usual.

    And Hawks will win the Superbowl.

    Like usual.

  61. denverdude7 says: Aug 12, 2014 5:38 PM

    Madden curse? What Madden curse?
    The Madden curse doesn’t exist, it’s complete non-sense.

    Oh, wait…

  62. seahawkgary says: Aug 12, 2014 5:47 PM

    thepftpoet haha Love seeing crying Vikings fans still trying to sound as if they will be good.

  63. senoreno says: Aug 12, 2014 6:24 PM

    A common question is always asked about percy Harvin. Seattle fans may say yes because they won the sb. However, this isn’t quite logical.

    1)Percy Harvin had no affect on reg or post season.

    2) Seattle overpaid. A contract worth 67 mil in addition to a 1st and 3rd round pick for a guy that’s played 10 games in the past 2 seasons.. His slight build, does not help him endure the week to week beating that the nfl delivers.

    3)With the 1st round pick, Seattle would have been able to draft DeAndre Hopkins, who had 802 rec yds, and would have been able to resign their best wr in Tate. Hopkins, Tate, Baldwin,Kearse Richardson>Harvin, Baldwin, Kearse, Richardson

  64. bleedgreen says: Aug 12, 2014 6:32 PM

    Have his migraines completely disappeared since leaving Minnesota? Weird…

  65. mnsadsportsfan says: Aug 12, 2014 7:12 PM

    Of course he does.

  66. rnine99 says: Aug 12, 2014 7:20 PM

    Really? You win 1…… 1 superbowl and now you say “And Hawks will win the Superbowl. Like usual.”… That’s laughable!

    Your 1-1 in superbowls. Nothing to get all excited about and say you will win the super bowl like usual.

    Seattle fans are delusional! They win 1 super bowl, lose another and they think they are a dynasty. You could just as well call Jacksonville and Houston dynasties as well. They have 0 NFL championships, and 0 super bowl championships. But hey, they are a dynasty!

  68. 12hawksfan1976 says: Aug 12, 2014 7:28 PM

    The Minnesota Vikings: “better than Seattle in every way” except Lombardis. D’oh!

  69. usdcoyotesfan says: Aug 12, 2014 7:34 PM

    Cheat Carroll can feed him some PEDs and he will be fine.

  70. seadawgs72 says: Aug 12, 2014 7:53 PM

    Everyone needs to chill. He got his foot stepped on. That’s it. Non story.

  71. seadawgs72 says: Aug 12, 2014 7:59 PM


    Yeah sure am glad cuz the Vikings are far better off without him. Obviously. As for Patterson being so much better, go back & watch Patterson’s performance or just look at his stats against the Hawks last year. Yawn. Non factor.

  72. taxexpert1 says: Aug 12, 2014 8:07 PM

    Hi Vikings fans, how is your first round QB from 2011 doing? 10 million guaranteed and now a benchwarmer about to get cut.

  73. beastmode5150 says: Aug 12, 2014 8:10 PM

    Those of you, especially hawk fans that are popping off without actually knowing, please don’t go to games. Go back to watching MLS or some other minor league “sport”, let the hawks fans from the 80’s pay attention.

  74. wallbanger2 says: Aug 12, 2014 9:17 PM

    Packers gonna whoop some Seahawk @ss…31-21

  75. juliusanonymous says: Aug 12, 2014 9:23 PM

    LOL @ Viking fans who thought they got the Cordarelle Patterson draft pick from the Seahawks trade.

    I’ve never met a fanbase in the NFL which was less knowledgeable about football. It’s hilarious. Apparently they’re not even knowledgeable about their own team. Just pathetic.

  76. seahonky says: Aug 13, 2014 1:56 AM

    Percy you are softer than 12th man fan in rainy, dreary Seattle. Your run was short and not so sweet

    Niner Empire

    Rainy and dreary? You’re not even close. Check your back yard. It’s an ugly brown just like San Francisco’s landscape

  77. nineball26 says: Aug 13, 2014 3:43 AM

    Percy is FINE, the BOOM turned him into a monster he walks off pain and lives for it now!!

  78. lloydrr says: Aug 13, 2014 6:18 AM

    All 3 Viking qbs would be 4th stringers on seattle and they don’t even throw the ball.

  79. winninaintsinnin says: Aug 13, 2014 9:24 AM

    Nothing more “usual” than current events.

    What’s usual? Pittsburgh winning? Haven’t even made the playoffs since being Tebowed and the roids being removed.

    San Fran? Most of you weren’t alive when they last won.

    Dallas? 1 playoff win on 17 years?

    New England? Have they won since Spygate?

    Baltimore certainly has an argument and maybe NYG.

    But even though it hurts your feelings, the Seahawks are the most recent, and therefore “usual” winner.

  80. winninaintsinnin says: Aug 13, 2014 9:31 AM

    the hawks fans from the 80’s

    We’re all duly impressed.

    Don’t fall for the baiting from other jealous franchises whose fans really did “appear” in the last 3 years.

  81. Derwin Worrell says: Aug 13, 2014 10:01 AM

    How many Super Bowl victories do the Minnesota Vikings have? When was the last time the Vikings beat the Seahawks? #WeOwnYou

  82. chawk12thman says: Aug 13, 2014 11:29 AM

    31 other team’s fan bases all feel bad that he came back out to the practice field. He was not injured, he was stepped on and “cleated” by another player on the ankle. That smarts for anyone and not something indicative of his past injury or migraine issues………

    Harvin knows what his reputation is and my guess is that he will work as hard as he can to correct that perception of being injury prone. It will be very good news for the Seahawks, if only he can…….

    Go Hawks!

  83. vegasvike says: Aug 13, 2014 1:02 PM

    Seahawks woulda won the SB with or without him. His 6 points was not the game changer. Vikings and Harvin fleeced the hawks. I don’t think Gronk belongs in the same category as Amendola and PH, his injuries are much more violent.

  84. uplate5301 says: Aug 13, 2014 1:07 PM

    By the time he’s finished, Harvin will be the first player in NFL history to be able to say, “Yep…. I was actually paid a million dollars a catch over the course of my career.”

  85. ceehawkfan says: Aug 14, 2014 12:39 AM

    Wouldn’t surprise me if Harvin reads all the critics hate mail and explodes this upcoming season…then what say you? GO HAWKS!
