The Seattle Seahawks had been waiting a long time to get Percy Harvin on the field. They got a taste of the action last week versus the Minnesota Vikings, but it seems that he has suffered another setback on his comeback trail. His hip has flared up again and coach Pete Carroll now says that he has been downgraded to doubtful for this Monday’s game against the New Orleans Saints (Seattle Seahawks).

Harvin has struggled with injuries in the past and this is something that the Minnesota Vikings fans have known for a while. He is a talented player, but struggles to stay on the football field. He is coming back from a serious injury and he is going to have some setbacks, but hopefully this doesn’t become something that happens often.

The Seahawks will just have to continue on without him in the lineup and when he does come back to full strength, then it will be a bonus for the team and the rest of the offense. Right now, he still needs time to recover.

    As viking fans I’m sure you were aware AP had a different opinion about the Harvin Trade…http://gamedayr.com/sports/adrian-peterson-feels-like-he-got-kicked-in-the-stomach-following-percy-harvin-trade/
    Games Harvin actually played with the Vikings….15, 14, 16, and nine…after he is healed…he will be a real asset in how Seattle will use him…we are not a one star team….and we are 9 and 1 without Harvin…

      We’re Vikings fans?

      Anyway, the Seahawks are the best team in the league and were downright scary without Harvin due to a great running game, improved OL, star QB, other WRs like Kearse who have stepped up big-time, and insanely good D. With Harvin? The Seahawks are scary. Yeah, you don’t have to worry about me betting against them or anything haha.
