Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin is officially listed as doubtful for Monday’s monumental game against New Orleans after re-aggravating the hip injury that sidelined him for the first 10 weeks of the season.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Saturday that Harvin’s surgically repaired hip is still sore after playing his first game of the season against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings, on Nov. 17.
“I thought from day-to-day we would have a chance to get him back,” Carroll said. “He’s been rehabilitating throughout the week. His hip was sore coming out of the game. We thought he would get back. … We’re going to list him as doubtful right now.”
Caroll added that Harvin has no structural damage in his hip.
Harvin did not practice Thursday, and even though the Seahawks didn’t hold practice Friday, he was listed as “DNP” because he would have been unavailable.
In his one game with 10-1 Seattle, Harvin made one catch for 17 yards and had an electric 58-yard kick return.
Also on the injury report, cornerback Brandon Browner (groin) is listed as out, while wide receiver Jermaine Kerse (concussion) and running back Marshawn Lynch (knee) are probable.
