After making his season debut with the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, wide receiver Percy Harvin revealed that, in addition to hip surgery last offseason, he underwent an appendectomy. And during the latter procedure, doctors found a benign tumor on his appendix.

Harvin revealed the bits of news after the Seahawks’ 41-20 victory Sunday over the Minnesota Vikings, Harvin’s former team.

“I’ve been through a lot besides the hip surgery,” Harvin said, according to ESPN.com’s Terry Blount. ‘‘So it was an enjoyable feeling to get back out there. I wanted to see where I was at. Today was the test everyone wanted to see. I don’t see any more setbacks. I’m looking to take off from here.”

Harvin had one catch for 17 yards on Sunday, and he returned a kickoff 58 yards.

Interesting how Seattle takes people who were not deemed good enough to play or coach for the Vikings and wins football games with them.

Some people need others to feel bad for such person. Though in Percy Harvins case there are ways to find out if he is lying. I believe he is not lying, and you should take his word. People now a day need drama too fill their lives. I always saw Harvin as a decent/good WR and that is how I will keep seeing him.

Percy Harvin's a weak Mama's Boy with a long and storied history of skipping games due to serious injuries like hangnails, warts, and jock itch. Harvin's been making up excuses to get paid and NOT play longer than Reverend Tebow's been cutting commercials and Manti Ze'ro's been creating phony girlfriends.
