Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin's first game in nearly two months ended after only one half, as the injury-prone playmaker sat out the final two quarters of Saturday's 23-15 win over the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Divisional Playoffs due to a concussion.

Harvin hit the turf hard when attempting to make a touchdown catch late in the second quarter and was taken to the locker room after being helped off the field. The Seahawks confirmed that the offseason acquisition sustained a concussion at halftime and would not return.

The game was only Harvin's second since being acquired from Seattle from the Minnesota Vikings during the offseason. The versatile wideout underwent arthroscopic surgery in August and missed the team's first 10 contests before facing his former team on Nov. 17. He was held out for the remainder of the regular season after experiencing swelling and stiffness in his hip.

Harvin caught three passes for 21 yards prior to exiting Saturday's win.
