Earlier this week it was revealed that new Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin had a slight tear in his labrum which may require surgery.
The talented wideout is scheduled to meet with another doctor to get a second opinion on the injury, which if deemed similar to the original diagnoses, will lead to the operating table. Still, that doesn’t mean Harvin will miss the entire season as many have suggested.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll hinted today that if Harvin goes under the knife, it’s very possible he could return at some point later this year.
Per the Tacoma News Tribune:
“It wouldn’t necessarily be season ending,” Carroll said. “That’s one of the scenarios it could be, but the likelihood of getting back just depends on what they have to do. … That’s a possibility, but we’re hoping that’s not the probability. We’re thinking it’s going to be better than that.”
“There’s a whole array of situations that could occur,” Carroll said. “We have to wait and see. It’s everything that he might be able to come right back here in a couple weeks and be ready to go. There may be some procedure that needs to take place, and there’s a number of different ways that could happen. And the lengths of the recovery depends on what has to take place.”
