Report: Seahawks WR Percy Harvin out for Monday’s game vs. Saints
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin received cortisone shots on his surgically repaired hip this weekend and will not play in Monday’s night NFC showdown against the New Orleans Saints, reports NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
Harvin was already listed on the injury report as doubtful and did not practice over the weekend.
Harvin had hip surgery on Aug. 1 to repair a torn labrum and made his season debut against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings, two weeks ago. He returned a kickoff 58 yards and had one catch for 17 yards in the 41-20 victory on Nov. 17.
“We don’t see any big issue, structurally,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Saturday. “It’s just [the way his hip is] responding from the load of the game. He had 16 active plays in there, so it wasn’t very much.
“He’s just sore. So we don’t want to push it. It’s not worth it.”
The Seahawks (10-1) lead the Saints (9-2) by one game for the conference’s best record.
