Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin was unable to practice all week, and he's now listed as doubtful for the Monday night matchup against the Saints. Harvin was held out yet again Saturday, and coach Pete Carroll confirmed that the wide receiver/returner has been unable to overcome lingering soreness in his surgically repaired hip, following his season debut two weeks ago.

"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 [against Minnesota on Nov. 17]. 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."

Carroll conceded that Harvin was "a little sore" following the Viking game but even with the Seahawks' bye week Harvin was unable to practice ahead of Monday night's game.

"We've kept him rehabilitating throughout the week," Carroll said. "We thought with all the days off, it would work together, but he didn't make it back like we thought he would. We have to go day to day. That's the only way we can do."

The Seahawks will also be without defensive backs Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond. The former is reportedly facing a year-long ban while the latter has been suspended four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
