Percy Harvin to miss 3-4 months after hip surgery
The Seahawks made one of their biggest moves during the offseason in acquiring Percy Harvin from the Minnesota Vikings. Now it appears this versatile offensive weapon will be on the shelf for a good chunk of the season.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported that Harvin will require surgery for a hip injury he sustained last week and is expected to miss three to four months of action. Rapoport tweeted:
“Percy Harvin will have surgery on Thursday in NYC, with Dr. Bryan Kelly performing. Then, the 3-4 month recovery clock starts. Nov. return?”
After seeking a second opinion on his torn labrum, Harvin tweeted the news and expressed some disappointment in the situation:
“When everything is going good sometimes life throw u a curve ball… sorry to half to report that my injury will require surgery… Nobody was more anxious and excited about season then….but I will be back strong as ever.. I appreciate all the love and prayers 12th man”
While Seahawks fans will undoubtably be annoyed at the absence of Harvin in the line up, they will surely be relieved that this injury wont keep him sidelined all season-long, as first feared. Should Harvin require the full four months for recovery, that will mean he’ll be scheduled to come back in time for the Seahawks’ final five games of the season, all taking place immediately following the teams Week 12 bye.happy wheels game
