When the Minnesota Vikings traded disgruntled wide receiver Percy Harvin and ship him to the Seattle Seahawks for a first-round draft pick, 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 Harvin was eventually placed on the PUP list, and is still rehabbing from the injury that will cost him at least the first six games of this season.
The latest report from the Seattle Times doesn’t sound good regarding a possible return date in the near future:
“He’s back in New York rehabbing and we’re making sure that we really do everything just right,” Head coach Pete Carroll said, via the Seattle Times. “He was very positive about how he’s coming back. We want to make sure we do a great job and support it in every way. We’ve made a couple of choices to send him back and he’s doing great. Don’t know that that means in terms of a time line.”
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.
