Seattle Seahawks place receiver Percy Harvin on PUP List


One of the biggest stories of the offseason was the Minnesota Vikings trying to move on from disgruntled wide receiver Percy Harvin and ship him to the Seattle Seahawks for a first-round draft pick, and it looked like a good deal for both sides.

That is until Harvin opened his first training camp in Seattle on the active/physically unable to perform list after telling the Seahawks he wasn’t comfortable practicing on the hip, which had given the dynamic receiver trouble since last month.

Then came word that the injury was actually a tear of the hip-labrum, and today, Harvin was officially placed on the PUP list, and will miss at least the first six games of this season.

Harvin has played 54 of 64 regular-season games over four NFL seasons, while accounting for 3,985 combined rushing and receiving yards and scoring 29 touchdowns, including five on kick returns.

Hopefully, Harvin will be able to make it back in time for the playoffs, as the Seahawks should still be able to at least make it to the postseason without him.
