Percy Harvin’s return to the Seahawks offense may have been premature.

The fifth-year receiver returned in Week 11, but his surgically repaired hip has "flared up," according to NFL Media. The Seahawks announced he’s listed as doubtful for Monday night against the New Orleans Saints.

Harvin didn’t participate in practice on Thursday and Friday. Doctors examined the hip for further diagnosis on Saturday, according to the report.

While Seattle’s offense has been fine without the explosive threat of Harvin, he adds another dimension that isn’t possessed by Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate and Jermaine Kearse.

Seattle traded three draft picks – including a 2013 first-round pick – for Harvin in March. They haven’t had much to show for it.
