Percy Harvin may require season-ending surgery
UPDATE: Jason La Canfora is reporting that if the second opinion on Harvin recommends surgery, it would likely be season ending.
Percy Harvin yet to finalize 2nd opinion on hip, with that process ongoing. If surgery required as 1st Dr. recommended likely season ending— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) July 26, 2013
No one doubts the skill of Percy Harvin, the problem for him since entering the league has been injuries. He had hoped for a fresh start in Seattle after being traded from Minnesota and signing a six-year, $67 million deal with the Seahawks, but the old problems are shining through.

While being placed on the physically unable to perform list doesn't mean Harvin will automatically miss time, the news doesn't sound encouraging.
What is new #Seahawks WR Percy Harvin (hip) battling? I'm told it's a slight tear in the labrum. Second opinion will be important.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 25, 2013
Let me clarify, because this is why there is a second opinion coming: Docs looking at a possible slight tear in Harvin's labrum.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 25, 2013
Harvin has battled injuries and migraine headaches throughout his career, having appeared in all 16 games only once in his four seasons. In 2012 with the Vikings, Harvin played just nine games but still managed to catch 62 passes for 677 yards and three touchdowns.
