The Seattle Seahawks acquired wide receiver Percy Harvin during the offseason of hopes of landing a top receiving threat that can take the team over the hump, but it was a hip injury and surgery that put his status for the season in serious jeopardy.
There have been little updates about Harvin and a potential timetable for his return since he underwent the surgery and head coach Pete Carroll says it could be at least one more month until the Seahawks learn whether or not Harvin will be able to return for the end of the 2013-14 NFL season.
On a positive note, the doctors seem optimistic.
“We just know that the surgeon that did the work was thrilled with the way he came back the days right after the surgery, and his ability to get range of motion and things were way ahead of schedule, so that’s a great sign,” Carroll said, via the Everett Herald.
“We’re hopeful, whatever that means. We won’t know, it’s going to take a good month before we can figure if he’s even going to have a chance to come roaring back out of it, but it looks like all of the signs are very good. So we’ll see what that means, but we’re not putting any weeks on it. We don’t know.”
Despite not knowing if Harvin can return, the team will want to make a decision as soon as possible and all signs point towards Seattle placing Harvin on the injured reserve list with a designation for return.
