The Seattle Seahawks coach said the surgery "went well and there's a long rehab coming." But Carroll added the team doesn't have a timetable yet, and Harvin will stay in New York for "a couple weeks."
"We don't have any dates or timeline," Carroll said, "but we'll be optimistic and hope he'll get back as soon as possible and be ready to go, eventually."
Harvin confirmed Tuesday via Twitter that a second opinion in New York led to his decision to undergo surgery on the hip, which had a small tear in the labrum. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the Seahawks were hopeful Harvin would be back in the lineup by Thanksgiving.
That would create a best-case scenario of Harvin making his season debut in Week 13 against the New Orleans Saints. It's not ideal, but you get the feeling Carroll and the Seahawks would be thrilled if he was back that soon.The Around The League Podcast is now available on iTunes!
