No big-play Percy Harvin for big matchup against Saints
To celebrate this now annual occasion, we merge the galaxies of Star Wars with our newest stars, the 2016 #SeahawksDraft class. And as you'll discover, the parallels between our two universes go far far beyond simple name-play. Happy Star Wars Day and #MayThe4thBeWithYou always! View
Soreness in his surgically repaired hip will prevent Percy Harvin from playing for the Seahawks in their “Monday Night Football” game against the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field, as the receiver/returner/runner is among the players just named inactive.
Harvin, who had hip surgery August 1, returned a kickoff 58 yards and also tipped a pass with one hand that he controlled while falling to the turf for a 17-yard reception in the Seahawks’ pre-bye week victory over the Minnesota Vikings – the team that traded him to Seattle in March. But soreness in his hip prevented Harvin from practicing this week.
“He’s just sore, so we don’t want to push it beyond that right now. It’s not worth it,” Carroll said after Saturday’s practice. “We have to go day-to-day really. That’s the facts. I’ve told you, that’s the only way that we can go right now.
“It’s just him getting back and making sure he’s balanced in that area so he can handle the workload.” Read
