Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin returned to the practice field two weeks ago and the team has been eagerly waiting his return to the line up. Many believed that this could be the week Harvin would suit up, but his hip flared up earlier in the week and that setback may be what led to the latest decision.

The Seahawks have decided that Harvin will not be returning in Week 9 and he has been ruled out.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll confirmed that the team will be without Harvin for at least one more week.

“Percy won’t play this week,” Carroll said, during an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “He’s getting close but not close enough.”

With Harvin still working himself back and Sidney Rice on the injured reserve list after suffering a torn ACL, the team will be moving forward with Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate as the starting wide receivers.

The good news is that with another week of practice ahead of him, there is a real good chance that he will be able to make his 2013 debut in Week 10.
