July 31 (UPI) -- Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin will have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip, likely keeping him off the field for several months.

Harvin got a second opinion from New York-based Dr. Bryan Kelly after the Seahawks team physicians told him he would not need surgery. He announced the decision to go under the knife on Twitter Tuesday.



Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had no official update on Harvin's status at a press conference Tuesday.

“Yeah we don’t know yet. But, we continue to progress with this simple thought that we are going to do whatever we need to do to help Percy be right," said Carroll.

"Whatever that is. So we will support the doctor’s findings and all that stuff," he said. "They’re working on that now. We should hear more about it the next day. But at this point, we will just get right and whatever it is; we will figure it out, once we have all the information."

"Eventually he has to say ‘Yeah I am getting surgery’ or not. And he has to okay that," Carroll said. "But that’s all going to be from the information from the doctors. They’re all working it out now. Trying to gather all of the information. There’s a lot of background information that we are doing as well. But it will be doctor’s recommendations, of course, and the patient always gets the final shot."

Harvin is expected to have his surgery Thursday.
