Harvin’s hip immediately an issue for Seahawks

TIM BOOTH,AP Sports Writer

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — It didn’t take long for the Seattle Seahawks to face a potential injury problem.

Newly acquired wide receiver Percy Harvin has a hip injury that landed him on the physically unable to perform list when Seahawks training camp began Thursday. The injury is in the area of Harvin’s labrum, according to Seattle coach Pete Carroll, and the severity hasn’t been determined.

Carroll said more information was needed and that second opinions would be sought. Carroll did not rule out surgery, but said the team has time to get Harvin ready. Carroll said Harvin was working out full speed at the team’s facility just a few days ago.

Along with Harvin, Seattle also started camp with defensive end Chris Clemons (knee) and tight end Zach Miller (foot) on the PUP list.
