Report: Percy Harvin seeing doctor in NY Tuesday about hip

Percy Harvin

Seattle Seahawks’ Percy Harvin speaks at a news conference at the team’s headquarters Tuesday, March 12, 2013, in Renton, Wash. The Seahawks completed their trade with Minnesota to acquire the wide receiver in exchange for a trio of draft picks.

On Thursday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that the team needed more information about the state of wide receiver Percy Harvin’s hip before they could determine how long Harvin would be out of action.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that they’ll get some more insight on Tuesday. According to Schefter, Harvin is going to travel to New York to get a second opinion from Dr. Bryan Kelly. Kelly specializes in hip injuries and performed surgery on New York Yankees pariah Alex Rodriguez’s torn labrum earlier this year among many other operations.

Harvin reportedly has a “slight” tear in his labrum and Schefter reports that both player and team want a second opinion to determine if surgery is necessary to correct the problem. If he does have surgery, Harvin will likely be out for a considerable amount of time and the Seahawks will be scrambling to replace the player who was the centerpiece of their offseason machinations before he plays a single snap for the team.

It’s not advisable for anyone to hold their breath over four days, but some in Seattle may be doing just that while waiting for word on Harvin’s outlook for the 2013 season.
