Harvin’s hip immediately an issue for Seahawks
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — It didn’t take long for the Seattle Seahawks to face a potential injury problem.
This one involving their most expensive offseason acquisition, Percy Harvin.
The Seahawks’ new offensive toy has suffered an unknown hip injury that landed him on the physically unable to perform list when training camp opened Thursday. The injury is in the area of Harvin’s labrum, which has immediately drawn concern that it could be a problem that would cause Harvin to miss significant time before ever seeing the field with his new team.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll did not rule out surgery as the solution.
The Seahawks made an aggressive move to bolster an already potent offense when they traded three draft picks, including their 2013 first-round selection, to Minnesota in exchange for Harvin. Then Seattle locked up Harvin long-term, signing him to a six-year extension.
