Percy Harvin to undergo hip surgery
Breaking the news himself on his Twitter account, Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin announced he will have to undergo surgery.

Obviously, this is bad news for the Seahawks, who will look to challenge the 49ers in the NFC West and could have used a No. 1 receiver for quarterback Russell Wilson, and it's bad for Harvin -- who signed a six-year, $67 million contract in the offseason after a trade from the Vikings.
The Seahawks announcedd Harvin will undergo surgery Thursday, but it isn’t necessarily a season-ending injury.
"That's one of the scenarios it could be, but the likelihood of getting back just depends on what they have to do,” coach Pete Carroll said last week.
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports that the team is hopeful Harvin can return by December, and the Seahawks, with Super Bowl expectations, would keep open a roster spot for him.
Writes La Canfora: "It's likely he ends up placed on the IR-designated to return, but he will certainly miss the vast majority of the season."
On Tuesday, Harvin was trying to sound optimistic as well.
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— Percy Harvin (@Percy_Harvin) July 30, 2013
