Report: November return possible for Harvin
The Seattle Seahawks are hoping that wide receiver Percy Harvin will be recovered from hip surgery around Thanksgiving, NFL.com reported Wednesday.
The team and Harvin announced Tuesday night that Harvin will undergo surgery on Thursday in New York for a labrum tear suffered during a preseason workout. The recovery time is estimated at three to four months,
That would put Harvin on course for a possible return in Week 13 for a Monday night game against the New Orleans Saints, according to NFL.com. The Seahawks have a bye in Week 12 and play the Minnesota Vikings, Harvin's former team, in Week 11.
While the loss of Harvin would seem to be a blow to the Seattle offense, fellow wide receiver Golden Tate told ESPN.com that the team will survive.
