                 === Seahawks WR Harvin to have hip surgery ===
 
 Renton, WA (Sports Network) - Percy Harvin's start with the Seahawks may be on
 hold.
 
 Harvin  announced Tuesday  that he would require surgery on his hip. Although,
 Harvin  didn't  say how long  he'd be sidelined,  reports indicate he would be
 sidelined for the bulk of the season.
 
 "Nobody  was more  anxious and excited about season then....but I will be back
 strong  as ever. I appreciate all the love and prayers, 12th man," Harvin said
 via Twitter.
 
 "When  everything  is (going) good  sometimes life (throws) (you) a curveball.
 Sorry to (have) to report that my injury will require surgery."
 
 The  Seahawks  traded for Harvin  in the offseason.  He played just nine games
 last  year  because of a severely  sprained ankle, finishing the campaign with
 62 receptions for 677 yards and three scores while adding 96 rushing yards and
 a  touchdown. He  also returned a kickoff  for a touchdown and was leading the
 NFL in kick return average at 35.9 yards before his injury.
 
 The 25-year-old Florida product has 280  career  catches for 3,302 yards  with
 20  touchdowns and has also averaged 6.4 yards on 107 carries with four scores
 --  all  with the Vikings. He's  also returned five kickoffs for touchdowns in
 his four-year career.
