Percy Harvin's hip flares up, doubtful for Saints game

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks could be without wide receiver Percy Harvin against the Saints.

The Seattle Seahawks may have one fewer option on Monday night when they take on the New Orleans Saints for the top spot in the NFC. Recently returned wide receiver Percy Harvin is once again suffering pain in his surgically repaired hip, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. Harvin's status for Week 13 is in doubt, as he is planning on meeting with doctors regarding his hip on Saturday, per Rapoport.

Harvin returned to the field in Week 11 after spending the first 10 games on the physically unable to perform list. His Seattle debut came against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. In the contest, Harvin had a 17-yard catch and a 58-yard kick return. The Seahawks were among the four teams that were on bye in Week 12. It is unclear what caused Harvin's hip to flare up again.

Seattle did not start Harvin in his first game back, so it is unlikely to impact its offense greatly on Monday.
