Only two days before one of the most anticipated matchups in the NFC this season, the Seahawks learned they may be without wide receiver Percy Harvin, who played his first game for Seattle two weeks ago, for Monday night's game against the visiting Saints.

Harvin's surgically repaired hip flared up and the 25-year-old will see a doctor on Saturday. His is listed as doubtful for Monday, a source told's Ian Rapoport.

After recording at least 60 catches in each of his four seasons with the Vikings, the Seahawks traded a first- and seventh-round pick in 2013 and a 2014 third-round pick to acquire Harvin, who they then signed to a five-year, $67 million deal.

Harvin has 20 career receiving touchdowns, four rushing touchdowns and five more on kick returns.

Seattle (10-1) and New Orleans (9-2) are the top 2 teams in the NFC, so this game could determine home-field advantage in the playoffs. The Seahawks have won a franchise-record 13 straight home games.
