The Seattle Seahawks were hopeful that Percy Harvin would not need surgery for his ailing hip but on Tuesday the wide receiver delivered the bad news via twitter.

Harvin tweeted that his injury would require surgery.

How long Harvin will miss remains to be seen. A timetable should be released soon but needless to say the injury is bad news for Seattle who was counting on Harvin to be a target of second year quarterback Russell Wilson.

The Seahawks gave up three draft picks to acquire Harvin from Minnesota and his bonus and salary are worth $14.5 million.
