NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Percy Harvin (knee) will not be reaching an injury settlement with the Bills.
He's headed for season-ending knee surgery. Even without an injury settlement, the Bills are free to void the last two years of his contract, which they will almost certainly do. Including the nine more games he'll miss this season, Harvin will have sat out 36 of a possible 64 games over a four-year span. As injuries and ineffectiveness mount, Harvin's NFL window is quickly coming to a close. Nov 8 - 9:07 AM

Bills placed WR Percy Harvin (hip, knee) on season-ending injured reserve.

The Bills can void the final two years of Harvin's contract, meaning his days in Buffalo are likely finished. Harvin will only be 28 when the 2016 season begins, but he is a declining playmaker with chronic injury concerns. It would not be surprising if the rumors of his possible retirement are true, and he will struggle to find any guaranteed money on the open market even if he decides to continue his career. Buffalo activated DB Leodis McKelvin in a corresponding move.
Nov 7 - 10:36 AM

Bills GM Doug Whaley said Percy Harvin (knee) could be headed to season-ending injured reserve.

He didn't practice at all this week and has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Dolphins. Harvin's season started off nice but has predictably tailspun out of control in recent weeks. He's battled a hip issue, personal problem, and now a knee injury. Harvin turns 28 next May and will again be on the open market searching for yet another new team to take him in.
Nov 6 - 12:56 PM

Percy Harvin (knee) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Dolphins.

Harvin's status, both injury and otherwise, remains a mystery. It's not a guarantee he plays again this season. He's safely droppable in 12-team leagues.
Nov 5 - 1:46 PM

Percy Harvin (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Harvin had previously been listed with a hip ailment. Whatever is bothering him, it doesn't sound like Harvin is nearing a return to the field for Week 9.
Nov 4 - 2:07 PM

Percy Harvin (hip) is at the Bills' facility Monday.

Rex Ryan said he is confident in Harvin's commitment to the team, adding Harvin "wants to play." Harvin may want to keep playing, but the extent of his hip injury is still unknown. Harvin missed most of 2013 because of issues with his hip.

Percy Harvin has met with Bills and is working with them to evaluate the extent of his hip injury.

WGR 550's Sal Capaccio reported Saturday Harvin had "positive" talks with the Bills last week. It looks like Harvin has decided not to retire, but the hip injury could still keep him sidelined for the foreseeable future. Harvin's status will be updated by Wednesday at the latest.
Nov 2 - 9:22 AM

WGR 550's Sal Capaccio reports the Bills have had "positive" communication with Percy Harvin (hip, knee).

Harvin did not travel to London with the team last week, and at one point coach Rex Ryan said he did not know where the receiver was. There have been conflicting reports on if Harvin is considering retirement, but Buffalo's insistence on calling Harvin's absence a "personal" matter indicates something other than the hip and knee injuries are keeping Harvin away. The Bills were off the entire bye week. We should know more once they return to work Monday.
Oct 31 - 9:17 AM

Bills GM Doug Whaley said he is "not sure" when the team will find out about Percy Harvin's (hip, knees) status.

"We found out early last week that he needed to take some time for personal reasons," Whaley said. "I haven’t been in contact with him. We said we’re gonna focus this week on this game, and then when we get back we’ll reach out to him and see where he is." There have been conflicting reports on if Harvin is contemplating retirement. Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports Harvin's absence is injury related despite the Bills continuing to claim it is a personal matter. FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Bills' insistence on using the non-injury designation could be in preparation for a contract dispute.
Oct 24 - 10:46 AM

A source close to Percy Harvin insists his absence is injury related, and not because of the "personal issue" referred to by coach Rex Ryan.

"There's no personal issue," the source told Yahoo's Charles Robinson. "It's an injury." The language disagreement hints at a looming contract dispute. The Bills could try to recoup some of Harvin's signing bonus if he retired for personal reasons. That wouldn't be the case if it was because of his health. Either way, it appears Harvin has rapidly worn out his welcome with yet another team. It's unclear if Harvin is seriously considering hanging it up. ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported he isn't.
Oct 22 - 5:04 PM

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Bills' decision to label Percy Harvin's (hip, knees) absence non-injury related could be an effort to recoup some of his signing bonus.

There have been conflicting reports on if Harvin is considering retirement, but a potential fight about money looms if Harvin decides to hang them up. Garafolo reports listing Harvin as "healthy" could allow the Bills to recoup over $2.5 million of his signing bonus if he retires. Harvin could decide to report back to the team, but the injury report designation suggests they would expect him to play if he came back. This saga could drag on for several weeks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Percy Harvin (hip) is not considering retirement.

This directly contradicts an earlier report from The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci. Schefter said Harvin is "increasingly frustrated" with his hip and knee injuries, but he is not considering hanging up his cleats. Rex Ryan said, "I don't know where he is right now," when asked about Harvin on Thursday. Harvin is out indefinitely.
Oct 22 - 9:06 AM

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reports Percy Harvin is considering retirement because of his hip injury.

Harvin did not travel with the team to London, and Rex Ryan evaded questions about Harvin in his press conference Thursday. Hip injuries forced Harvin to miss most of 2013, and he needed a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection in his hip this preseason. One of the top playmakers in the game when on the field, Harvin has missed 25-of-53 possible games the last four seasons.
Oct 22 - 8:51 AM

Percy Harvin (hip) did not travel with the Bills to London and will miss Week 7 against the Jaguars.

With Sammy Watkins (ankle) also in doubt for Week 7, it looks like Robert Woods and Chris Hogan will be the Bills' starting receivers against Jacksonville. Hogan has shown the better hands and ability to get open thus far.
Oct 21 - 9:10 AM

Percy Harvin (hip) is not expected to play Week 7 against the Jaguars in London.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported Sunday Harvin could miss "significant time," so it is not a given Harvin will be ready to go following the team's Week 8 bye. Harvin missed almost all of the 2013 season with hip issues. He can be dropped in all formats.
