Percy Harvin’s Return After Hip Surgery Will Bolster Seattle Seahawks in NFL Playoffs
We all knew it was coming, but it still hurts for the Seattle Seahawks: Percy Harvin will need surgery on his injured hip. This devastating news comes less than five months after Harvin was traded to Seattle from the Minnesota Vikings and his Seahawks debut will come in November at the earliest.
The Seahawks were a popular Super Bowl pick with the addition of the speedy receiver, but now Russell Wilson and company will have to get to the playoffs without their newest weapon, which wasn’t a problem in 2012.
Now if Harvin is healthy and able to return in the playoffs, the Seahawks could still be a great bet to win the NFC, but the lost time will certainly affect Seattle’s timing on offense. Of course, it’s better for him to have surgery now with the possibility of coming back for the postseason, but hip surgery is never a good thing.
Still, the Seahawks were one of the most consistent teams in the NFL last year and they got stronger as the season wore on. If Harvin is able to return for the playoffs, they could be scary good by that point and then become elite with him on the field again. Put simply, this is a minor setback for Seattle.
Here’s to a speedy recovery for Percy.
