The Seattle Seahawks made a huge offseason move in March by acquiring wide receiver Percy Harvin from the Minnesota Vikings, but it looks like their offense won’t receive the boost that they were hoping for right off the bat. According to reports, Harvin has suffered a “slight tear” in his labrum that has landed him on the physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp.
The fear is that Harvin’s tear could require surgery, but Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll confirms that the team will first seek a second option.
Pro Football Talk confirms that the Seahawks spotted the tear in Harvin’s labrum during an MRI on Thursday.
Seattle had been happy with how Harvin was performing during minicamps and OTAs before the injury.
Harvin has had a history of injuries and migraines, so the team may be a bit concerned with the latest setback, but once he is able to get to 100 percent he will be able to provide the Seahawks passing attack with the kind of speed they were hoping for whenever they made the move to acquire him.
