Updates from Monday, Dec. 2
Fox Sports' Mike Garfaolo reports Percy Harvin received a cortisone shot to help ease the pain of his bothersome hip injury:
Seattle Seahawks receiver/returner/do-it-all guy Percy Harvin has yet to be officially ruled out for Monday's game vs. the New Orleans Saints, but it's extremely likely he sits down. Per a source, Harvin went to see doctors this weekend and had a cortisone injection into his surgically repaired hip. This is the second time the hip flared up since Harvin has returned to action. The first time was while he was practicing in October in advance of being added to the active roster. When that flareup occurred, Harvin had to have his hip drained.
Later in the day he was deemed officially inactive courtesy of the Seahawks Twitter account:
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com added:
Percy Harvin visited doctors after being listed on the injury report all week, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports his status for Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints is in doubt:
Source: #Seahawks WR Percy Harvin's surgically repaired hip flared up again. He's seeing doctors today, but his status for MNF is in doubt.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 30, 2013
The Seahawks echoed the report on Twitter, stating that Harvin will be doubtful for the contest:
The Florida product has appeared in just one game this season after hip surgery last offseason. It came in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings, his former team, where he recorded one catch for 17 yards and tallied 58 yards on kickoff return duty.
Harvin is a special weapon when healthy, having accumulated 3,319 receiving yards, 683 rushing yards and 29 total touchdowns in five seasons.
The 10-1 Seahawks have been dominant all year, but Monday's tilt with the 9-2 Saints has huge playoff implications in the NFC. Once again, the task will fall to Golden Tate, Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin, among others, to make up for Harvin's likely absence.
The Seahawks finish the year with a tough slate against the 49ers, Giants, Cardinals and Rams. Should Harvin miss an extended period of time, it will simply be business as usual.
