The receiver group for the Seattle Seahawks was front and center a day after the Percy Harvin announced that he would have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip, likely making him unavailable for a large chunk of the 2013 season.
While acknowledging the unfortunate loss of Harvin for a majority of the season, receivers Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin said Seattle’s offense still will not miss a beat once the regular season begins in September.
“I hate to say it, but Sidney (Rice) was dealing with injuries my rookie season, and we were able to go forward without him, Baldwin said. “Percy wasn’t here last year. So we still have depth. We have guys on this team that haven’t even had a chance to play football yet on Sundays, and they’re more than capable of filling in too, if we need them as well.”
