Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) may need surgery

The Seahawks gave up quite a bit (large contract and collection of draft picks) this offseason for wide receiver Percy Harvin, but his debut with the team could be delayed due to a hip injury.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, an MRI shows a "possible slight tear in Harvin's labrum" and he will seek a second opinion next week.

The injury, which occurred while working out last week, landed Harvin on the team's Active/PUP list and may ultimately require surgery.

"It may be. We'll find out," [head coach Pete] Carroll said (via NFL.com). "We're going to go ahead and take it step by step. I know he was working full speed just a few days ago. But we need to take care of him. We don't know enough information. The number of guys we have on PUP we have to be careful. We have to bring them back in good order and be diligent about the process right now."

Although an ankle injury ended his season prematurely last year, Harvin led the NFL in receptions (62) before sustaining the injury. Based on his stats through nine games, Harvin was on pace for 110 receptions, 1,204 receiving yards and 171 rushing yards.

In my most recent fantasy football rankings update, Harvin was the No. 10 fantasy wide receiver, but I will move him down some in my next update until more is known about the extent of the injury considering the possibility for him to miss regular-season games.

If Harvin does miss time, Sidney Rice, Golden Tate and the team's other receivers will get a boost to their fantasy value as well.
