“When everything is goin good sometimes life throw u a curve ball…,” wrote Harvin. “Sorry to have to report that my injury will require surgery… Nobody was more anxious and excited about season ….but I will be back strong as ever..i appreciate all the love and prayers 12th man.”
The team gave details on the surgery, announcing that it will take place Aug. 1. At this time, it is unknown how long Harvin will be sidelined, but some news outlets estimate that he will be out three to four months. That means he won’t be back until late November.
The loss of Harvin is significant, but some of his teammates are confident they can still get the job done without him.
“Obviously we would be more dangerous with Percy, but with or without him I still feel like we have enough playmakers to succeed this year,” Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate told ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
A few months back, Harvin signed a six-year, $67 million extension contract with the Seahawks, with $25 million guaranteed.
