Two sources with knowledge of Harvin's condition told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that Harvin's status is in doubt for the colossal "Monday Night Football" contest with the New Orleans Saints. For the second time since returning to practice a month ago, Harvin's surgically repaired hip has flared up.
Harvin was consulting Saturday with doctors, according to Rapoport. The meeting is ostensibly to determine whether there's any chance he can suit up for the NFC showdown.
Harvin's absence would take away a key weapon in the return game and a wild card on offense, but the Seahawks have been the NFL's most dominant team without him this season.
Russell Wilson has never lost a home game in Seattle. The Seahawks trio of Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse has exceeded expectations this season. This team doesn't need Harvin to knock off the Saints outside of the Superdome.
