Renton, WA (SportsNetwork.com) – Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin
will have to wait another week to make his season debut.

Harvin returned to the practice field Monday, but the team announced Saturday
he is still not ready to play following hip surgery on Aug. 1. Harvin will
miss Monday’s contest against the St. Louis Rams.

The offseason acquisition is currently on the reserve/physically unable to
perform list, but is eligible to be activated.

The Seahawks traded a 2013 first-round pick to the Minnesota Vikings to obtain
Harvin, one of the league’s most dynamic receivers and return men who has
battled injuries all throughout his first four seasons in the league.

Harvin compiled 62 catches for 677 yards and three touchdowns over nine games
with the Vikings last season, missing the final seven contests due to a
severely sprained ankle. He produced 967 yards and six touchdowns on 87
receptions the previous year, while adding 345 yards and two more scores on 52
rushing attempts.

The versatile 25-year-old has also returned five kickoffs for touchdowns over
his career.
