Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, in his regular Monday appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle, the team’s flagship radio station, said receiver Percy Harvin is likely to go on Injured Reserve sometime this week.
That is no surprise as Carroll said last week that that could happen soon. It didn’t last week, leading to some thought that maybe they were waiting to see if Harvin could make it back for the playoffs.
But Carroll today said that Harvin would “need the off-season to get back to full speed” clearly indicating he won’t make it back this season, and then saying there could be a roster move coming later this week.
Harvin has played just once this season, against Minnesota on Nov. 17, after having hip surgery on Nov. 1 and then battling soreness in the hip since then.
He has remained on the active 53-man roster since then. But Seattle is also carrying LB K.J. Wright on the active roster, hoping he can make it back sometime during the playoffs, and may decide it needs the spot for a healthy player who can help.
