Percy Harvin (hip) to have surgery on Thursday

Dealing with a slight tear in his labrum, Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin spent today in New York City to get a second opinion on his injury.

And that second opinion has led to a decision to have surgery.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Harvin will have his surgery on Thursday and the estimated timetable for Harvin to return is three to four months.

The Seahawks have their bye in Week 12 (see schedule) as they play Harvin's former team on November 17th and then the Saints on Monday, December 2nd.

So unless his recovery is closer to three months, it's most likely that he returns after the team's bye.

In addition to the Harvin news, Sidney Rice, the team's No. 2 receiver, is in Switzerland getting a knee treatment. Coach Pete Carroll is optimistic, though, that Rice won't miss any (even preseason) games.

Assuming that Rice's European vacation goes as well as Carroll suggests, Harvin's injury boosts the fantasy value of Rice and Golden Tate and makes Doug Baldwin draftable in deeper leagues.

In addition to moving Harvin down (obviously) in my fantasy rankings, I will drop Russell Wilson a couple of spots from No. 7 to No. 10 as well.
