Bills place Percy Harvin on season-ending IR

NCAAF - The Buffalo Bills have placed wide receiver Percy Harvin on injured reserve, officially ending his season, the team announced Saturday.

Harvin has been struggling with a knee injury recently, with general manager Doug Whaley saying Friday it was possible the 2009 first-round pick could be placed on IR.

Harvin, who battled a hip injury early in the season, had been sidelined since Week 5.

The loss of Harvin will be a blow to a receiver unit struggling with injuries, with Sammy Watkins nursing an ankle injury and Marquise Goodwin already lost for the season.

Harvin could have played his last snap for the Bills, as the final two years of his contract are voidable, meaning he could become a free agent once again after the season.

After the Bills signed him this past offseason with the hopes he’d recapture the form that made him a star earlier in his career, the Bills may ultimately move on from Harvin, who continues to be plagued by injuries.

He recorded 19 catches for 218 yards and one touchdown this season.

The Bills activated cornerback Leodis McKelvin, who had recently returned to practice after missing nearly an entire year with an ankle injury, in a corresponding move.
