Percy Harvin will have hip surgery on Thursday, sidelining the dynamic wide receiver for the start of his first season with the Seahawks. Harvin made the announcement on his Twitter account Tuesday night, hours after getting a second opinion on the injury in New York. The Seahawks then said the operation was scheduled for Thursday. Harvin was seeking more information for soreness in his hip, in the area of his labrum, that popped up just before the Seahawks opened training camp.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll has not indicated which hip is bothering Harvin. He said earlier in the day that the team was still gathering information about Harvin’s second opinion. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
