The Seattle Seahawks are coming into the 2013 NFL season with high hopes, but right now they will have to move forward with one less weapon on offense.
CBS Sportsline reported on July 30 that Percy Harvin will undergo hip surgery this Thursday. The positive news is Harvin isn’t being ruled out for the season, but of course this is a major blow to a Seattle team that is coming into this year believing that they can win the NFC West and a Super Bowl title.
“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.
Harvin signed a six-year, $67 million contract in the off-season after a trade from the Vikings and was being looked at the X-factor the Seahawks needed this season to push them ahead of the 2012 NFC champion 49ers.
Harvin is obviously disappointed over the whole situation. He tweeted this last night:
“when everything is goin good sometimes life throw u a curve ball… sorry to half to report that my injury will require surgery…”
Do you think this will set the Seahawks back a notch, or since Harvin was making his Seattle debut this season it won’t hurt them at all?
