Percy Harvin injury: Seahawks WR headed for injured reserve, per report

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The free agent signing would finish the season with just one touch.

Percy Harvin looks unlikely to recover his 2013 season with the Seahawks, as the team is likely to put the wide receiver on injured reserve, Kevin Patra of is reporting.

Harvin suffered a hip injury in the offseason, but was able to return to the field in November, catching one pass for 17 yards against his former team, the Vikings. He suffered a setback since then, however, and has not played in a game besides that one.

The fifth-year wide receiver out of Florida was drafted by Minnesota in 2009, and was signed by the Seahawks prior to this season. A highly explosive player, he has averaged 11.8 yards per catch and 28.2 yards per kick return in his career.

Harvin's best season came in 2011, when he caught 87 passes for 967 yards and averaged a league-leading 32.5 yards per kick return. He missed nearly half of the 2012 season with injury, but averaged 35.9 yards per return that season.
