"It's in that area, yeah," Carroll said. "We're going to take a real good look at it and get second opinions and all that kind of stuff, to do the right thing. It's really early in camp, we got plenty of time to get this thing worked out, so we're being very careful."
Carroll, as is his way, spoke with optimism. Still, surgery clearly is an option for Harvin at this time, although a source who regularly communicates with Harvin told Rapoport that wasn't the Seahawks doctor's recommendation. Harvin will receive a second opinion Tuesday, the source said.
"It may be. We'll find out," Carroll said of the possibility that Harvin will need surgery. "We're going to go ahead and take it step by step. I know he was working full speed just a few days ago. But we need to take care of him. We don't know enough information. The number of guys we have on PUP we have to be careful. We have to bring them back in good order and be diligent about the process right now."
Harvin had been a full-go in minicamp practices last month. The 25-year-old receiver missed the second half of last season with an ankle injury but had been believed to be back to 100 percent.
