Percy Harvin Has Torn Hip Labrum

According to NFL.com Ian Rapoport, Percy Harvin missed practice today with an injured hip. It was unexpected, since it had been reported by Bob Condotta of the Times last week that Harvin was healthy and ready for practice.

Getting a “2nd opinion” is a ominous idea, since that usually implies that the 1st opinion was very bad news.

This is definitely a situation to watch. A torn Labrum is a big deal with a long recover time. It’s also something that can be played though if the injury is minor (which is sounds like it is), though it will cause him some pain if he does that.

The Seahawks gave up 3 draft picks for Harvin back in March, and then gave him a $67 million contract. His health, both in the short and long term, is something the Seahawks will have to juggle. The team would like to have him playing this season, but not if it jeopardizes his future, given that the team will be paying him a lot of money over the next couple years as well.

The Seahawks are especially deep at WR this season, so they can afford to have Harvin miss some time that’s required. It certainly wouldn’t be ideal, but with Chris Harper now on the team and with a healthy Doug Baldwin, the team would still be better at the position than in 2012.

    As a Ram fan this does not make me
    happy. Really. I wanted (it may still
    happen) Austin vs.Harvin as a seperate
    battle in the war. I hope he will be OK.

    I’m a 49ers fan. I hate when fans gloat over someone’s misfortune. Maybe Seahawk fans should not have been so cruel in their posts when Michael Crabtree tore his achilles.
