Report: Percy Harvin, coming off cortisone shot, won't play Monday
After playing in Week 11, Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin continues to have hip problems and reportedly won't play Monday.
Coach Pete Carroll said lingering soreness had kept Harvin from practicing all week during the bye and that it simply wasn't worth it to the team to push Harvin at this point.
The surgically repaired hip also gave him trouble in October when he first began practicing. At that point, the hip was drained of excess fluid.
"Harvin's toughness was questioned while he was a member of the Minnesota Vikings and he doesn't want that label slapped on him to start his tenure with the Seahawks, so he's taking the injections and undergoing the procedures to play through the issues that are nagging him -- problems that are arising because he might have come back too soon," Foxsports.com's Mike Garafolo writes.
It's a conundrum for Harvin and the team, it appears. But it also sounds like his hip isn't giving him much of a choice on whether he can play.
