Is it time to be concerned about Percy Harvin?
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll announced that Harvin would be listed doubtful for Monday's huge game against the New Orleans Saints with a hip injury.

Harvin came over from the Minnesota Vikings via trade this offseason, and he suffered a hip injury during his new team's OTAs this summer. Harvin had surgery on the hip and made his Seahawks debut in Week 11, catching one pass for 17 yards and returned a kickoff 58 yards against the Vikings.
On Friday, the Seahawks did not practice, but Harvin was listed as "DNP" — meaning he would not have been able to practice. On Saturday, per published reports, Harvin consulted with doctors about his status for Monday.
The game could determine which team — the Seahawks or Saints — earn the NFC's No. 1 seed in the playoffs, and the valuable home-field advantage that both teams badly covet.
Harvin was injury-prone in four seasons with the Vikings, who traded him for a variety of reasons, but one of them apparently was a lack of reliability. Have Harvin's injury problems carried over to the Seahawks? It appears the team will be holding its breath with this one.
