Pete Carroll confirmed that Percy Harvin's surgery on his injured hip went well today (he used the words 'very well' as opposed to 'badly bungled,' I guess) and Carroll said Harvin will remain in NYC for two weeks to rehab. There is no real timeline available at this point, but Carroll mentioned that the Hawks are still hopeful he'll return to action this season.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks had 20 players sitting out of practice today, but Carroll made sure to note that none of the various ailments are serious and none should mean missed time in the regular season. I would assume when he said this that he meant players not named Chris Clemons (torn ACL against Washington), though he did say the team is hopeful they'll have Clemons back for a preseason game. Wait... what? Really? That would be pretty crazy. Anyway.
More notes from Carroll's presser:
Bobby Wagner has missed some time with a sore shoulder. Luke Willson was in a red jersey today after injuring his arm yesterday in a collision with Winston Guy. Robert Turbin is supposed to be back in a few weeks, as is Zach Miller. Jeremy Lane has a bruised foot, Michael Palmer has a groin issue, Darren Fells has a hamstring injury. Sidney Rice is supposed to be back in a couple of days.
Carroll mentioned that Bryan Walters, a Kirkland native, is having a great training camp. #Seahawks— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) August 1, 2013

Players continue to go down around the NFC West, with Arizona NT Dan Williams tweaking his knee today, Niners CB Chris Culliver doing the same, and All-Pro linebackers Patrick Willis (broken hand) and Novarro Bowman (groin) missing time in San Francisco with injuries. San Fran is also having some injury issues at wide receiver, with various things bugging Kyle Williams and A.J. Jenkins (and of course Michael Crabtree.)
