Percy Harvin doubtful, not expected to play

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin is officially listed as doubtful and isn't expected to play Monday night against the New Orleans Saints.

Harvin didn't practice Saturday due to soreness in his surgically-repaired hip.

"We don't see any big issue, structurally," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters. "It's just [the way his hip is] responding from the load of the game [against Minnesota on Nov. 17]. He had 16 active plays in there, so it wasn't very much. He's just sore. So we don't want to push it. It's not worth it."

Harvin had surgery on Aug. 1 to repair a torn labrum.

Against the Seattle Seahawks, Harvin returned a kickoff 58 yards and caught a 17-yard pass.

"We've kept him rehabilitating throughout the week," Carroll said. "We thought with all the days off, it would work together, but he didn't make it back like we thought he would. We have to go day to day. That's the only way we can do."
