Seahawks' Percy Harvin To Undergo Hip Surgery
By Allen Kim
After flying to New York to get a second opinion on his injured hip, Percy Harvin has opted to undergo surgery.
He tweeted the news, saying, “When everything is goin good sometimes life throw u a curve ball... sorry to half to report that my injury will require surgery.”
Team doctors believed that the tear in the labrum of Harvin’s hip would not require surgery, but Dr. Bryan Kelly believes otherwise, and he’s expected to perform the surgery this Thursday. While there are concerns that it may potentially cost him the season, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that the estimated timetable for his return is three to four months. That would put his earliest return date in November, just in time for a late-season push toward the playoffs.
Harvin is clearly devastated, saying, “Nobody was more anxious and excited about season then....but I will be back strong as ever..i appreciate all the love and prayers 12th man.”
The Seahawks now have to decide whether they want to place him on the physically unable to perform list or on short-term injured reserve.
