Harvin Needs Surgery, Rice Seeks Treatment

Updated:
Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice of the Seattle Seahawks are undergoing treatment for hip and knee injuries, respectively.

After meeting with a second doctor Tuesday, Harvin tweeted that he will have to undergo surgery for a tear in his hip. Harvin will be out for 3-4 months, which means his earliest return would be in November. The team now has to make a decision on whether or not to put Harvin on the "Physically Unable to Perform" list, which would require him to miss at least six games, or designate him for the short-term Injured Reserve.

Sidney Rice's condition seems to be less serious. He has left team camp to have treatment in Switzerland, however, Coach Pete Carroll did comment saying that the treatment Rice is receiving is non-surgical. Concerns about Rice's knees surfaced last season and reached their peak when Rice had to use crutches after a playoff-loss against Atlanta. Rice is expected to come back refreshed from his treatment and not miss any regular season games.

Prior to these two injuries, the Seahawks were viewed as having one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.
