If Percy Harvin undergoes surgery on his ailing hip the Seattle Seahawks would move forward as if the dynamic receiver won't play a snap until 2014. "If you have hip surgery it's a lot longer than the season" Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. "Hip surgery he's not going to play for the season." Harvin 25 was placed on the active/physically unable to perform list Thursday because of the hip which has given him trouble since organized team activity practices this spring. He did not speak to reporters after watching Friday's practice and responded to a fan's yell of "We need you to get better!" with only a smile and a nod as he left the field. The concern is Harvin might have a partially torn labrum but two people familiar with the injury told USA TODAY Sports the Seahawks are hopeful surgery -- and the lengthy recovery that follows -- won't be necessary pending another MRI. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because injury details were to remain private. Harvin is scheduled to get a second opinion Tuesday from noted hip specialist Dr. Bryan Kelly at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Carroll said there is no rush to make a decision because surgery would end Harvin's first season in Seattle no matter when it happens. "We're going to wait it out and make sure we know what's going on" Carroll said. "He was running full-speed a week ago. He was fine. He's not far away from being back out there. But we need to know the (seriousness) of the injury. And we'll know that in time.
