The Seattle Seahawks will make a decision on wide receiver Percy Harvin on Monday ahead of their match up against the New Orleans Saints.

“We’ll go all the way out to Monday with this to see what happens,” Carroll said, via Pro Football Talk.  “But unfortunately, he didn’t make it back like we thought he would.  So it’s more important for us to get him back for the longer haul.  So if we wait another couple of days here and get through the week. . . .  I thought with the days off, it’ll all work together.  But it didn’t work out quite right for us.  So unfortunately, he didn’t make it.”

Harvin aggravated a hip injury that was healing. The Seahawks want to be especially careful to prevent him from further injuring himself.

“[I]t’s just responding from the load of the game and he only had 19 plays and 16 active plays in there,” Carroll said.  “So it wasn’t very much.  But he’s just sore and so we don’t want to push beyond that right now.  It’s not worth it.”

“That’s the only way we can go right now and we don’t see any big issue, structurally,” Carroll said.  “There’s nothing, we’ve looked at everything.”
