NFL.com says Harvin is out tonight

Given that he was already listed as doubtful — a designation that almost always means a player won’t play — a report that just broke on NFL.com that receiver Percy Harvin won’t play tonight is not a huge surprise.

Of more concern may be the detail in the first paragraph that Harvin’s hip “only got worse” over Seattle’s bye week.

It’s also worth noting that the story says Harvin views himself as out.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had said the team would  hold  out hope until kickoff time when he met with the media on Saturday.

Here’s what Carroll said then about Harvin.

While the NFL.com story wonders if the Seahawks rushed Harvin back, it’s worth remembering what everyone involved said when he did return against Minnesota — that they all felt he was ready to return. Harvin also didn’t indicate anything amiss with the hip after the Minnesota game (here’s what Harvin said after the game).

The Seahawks had hoped that Harvin was back for good when he did return. For now, this looks like a situation that will continue with some uncertainty for some time.
