Pete Carroll confirmed Thursday that wide receiver Percy Harvin has undergone surgery on his injured hip.
The Seattle Seahawks coach said the surgery "went well and there's a long rehab coming." But Carroll added the team doesn't have a timetable yet, and Harvin will stay in New York for "a couple weeks."
"We don't have any dates or timeline," Carroll said, "but we'll be optimistic and hope he'll get back as soon as possible and be ready to go, eventually."
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the Seahawks were hopeful Harvin would be back in the lineup by Thanksgiving.
That would create a best-case scenario of Harvin making his season debut in Week 13 against the New Orleans Saints. It's not ideal, but you get the feeling Carroll and the Seahawks would be thrilled if he was back that soon.
Week 13 is a long way away. We don't recommend drafting Harvin unless he can be had cheaply in a league with big rosters (18+ spots) and/or an IR slot. Even if Harvin returns in Week 13, he may be eased in with an eye on the real-world playoffs, not the fantasy playoffs.
