Percy Harvin had cortisone injection in hip over weekend; unlikely to play tonight


The Seattle Seahawks are hopeful that wide receiver Percy Harvin will be able to contribute to the team throughout the final month of the season, but don’t expect to see him on the field for their big Monday Night Football match up against the New Orleans Saints.

Harvin is considered very unlikely for tonight’s game and his chances of playing took another hit over the weekend when he needed to have a cortisone injection in his hip.

From FOX Sports:

Seattle Seahawks receiver/returner/do-it-all guy Percy Harvin has yet to be officially ruled out for Monday’s game vs. the New Orleans Saints, but it’s extremely likely he sits down. Per a source, Harvin went to see doctors this weekend and had a cortisone injection into his surgically repaired hip. This is the second time the hip flared up since Harvin has returned to action. The first time was while he was practicing in October in advance of being added to the active roster. When that flareup occurred, Harvin had to have his hip drained.

Harvin has been injury prone throughout his entire career and the latest setback is a bit troubling, especially when you consider the amount of time he has missed this year and the investment that the Seahawks made when they brought him over from the Minnesota Vikings.

The team could use Harvin to give the offense another dynamic moving forward, but first he needs to get back to 100 percent and stay healthy.
