Percy Harvin injury: Seahawks WR yet to practice this week

Percy Harvin has yet to practice for the Seattle Seahawks this week, putting his status in jeopardy for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Harvin is still dealing with the nagging effects of offseason hip surgery. He reportedly underwent another "little procedure" on his hip after playing Week 12. Harvin missed Week 13 against the New Orleans Saints due to a setback.

If Harvin is able to practice Friday, he may be able to suit up against the 49ers. If not, there is fairly good chance he will miss a second straight game.

Harvin has appeared in just one game this season for the Seahawks, who gave up a first-round and seventh-round draft pick to acquire the speedster from the Minnesota Vikings. He returned to face his former team in Week 12 and made an immediate impact, catching one pass for 17 yards and returning a kickoff 58 yards to set up a touchdown just before halftime.

If Harvin sits, Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate will continue to shoulder the receiving load. With Sidney Rice on injured reserve, the two wideouts have combined 86 receptions for 1,308 yards and eight touchdowns. Tight end Zach Miller has also emerged as a favorite target for Russell Wilson in his last two outings. His 69 yards against the Vikings were a season high until his 86-yard, one-touchdown performance against the Saints last week.
