Seattle Seahawks rue Harvin injury setback

Seattle Seahawks star Percy Harvin will miss Monday night's clash against the New Orleans Saints after receiving cortisone shots over the weekend, in an attempt to solve his problematic hip injury, reports

The 25-year-old wide receiver made his long-awaited debut for the Washington-based franchise two weeks ago, in the Week 11 match against the Minnesota Vikings, but could now sit out of upcoming games against the Saints and the San Francisco 49ers.

Harvin arrived in Seattle following a blockbuster trade during the offseason, but has been plagued by injury problems that have halted his progress at CenturyLink Field.

Head coach Pete Carroll might now regret rushing the former Vikings man back to action, with it now looking likely that he'll be missing for tonight's crucial contest for NFC seeding.

Victory tonight for the Seahawks - who are at 10-1 - will all but sew up home field in the playoffs, but they'll have to do it the hard way without their ailing receiver, who delighted fans with a spectacular one-handed grab and inspiring kick return on debut.
