Seahawks hoping Harvin can contribute this season

Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin had hip surgery Thursday, and Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Harvin playing this season remains a distinct possibility.

Carroll said after practice that Harvin had successful surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his hip by Dr. Bryan Kelly in New York.

Carroll said Harvin will remain in New York for two weeks to rehabilitate after surgery before returning to the team.

“We don’t have any dates, or timelines or that kind of stuff,” Carroll said. “But we’re going to be very optimistic, and hopefully he’s going to get back as soon as possible, and gradually we can get him fixed up and ready to go.”

Carroll said the expectation remains that Harvin will return to action this season, although no timetable has been established for his return.

Recovery time for Harvin’s hip procedure can take up to 16 weeks.

“With all the information we got, we’re more hopeful that he will have a chance to get back,” Carroll said.

Carroll said he expects receiver Sidney Rice back from his trip to Switzerland, where he received preventative treatment for a knee issue, in the next day or so.

Carroll also provided information on the injury status of starting middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, who has missed the past two training camp practices with a sore shoulder – one of 20

players who did not practice for the Seahawks on Thursday.

“We’re resting some guys,” Carroll said. “There’s an array of guys that we’re resting, just because it’s that time to do that. But we’ve got a couple nagging groins and things like that. Nothing serious at this point, but Bobby’s shoulder is kind of sore. And you saw that Luke (Willson) was out here in a red shirt just because he has a sore shoulder, too.”

Tight end Zach Miller and running back Robert Turbin, who started training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list with foot issues, are expected to get going in the next week or so.

“Turbo has a chance to get back next week sometime,” Carroll said. “For sure in two weeks, if everything keeps going like it is. He’s running now. He’s working out hard.

“We’re just trying to make sure that we give him enough time to get back in shape, so once he starts working at the clip we go at, that he’ll be all right. And that’s the same with Zach.”

Carroll acknowledged there’s a chance that defensive end Chris Clemons is far enough along in his rehab from surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament that he could see action in an exhibition game.

“We’re really excited about the progress he’s been making,” Carroll said. “We’ve got some hopeful thoughts about that, that we’ll kind of keep under our hat. But he’s doing well.”
