Harvin Out for Season

Monday, Dec. 5

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported the Bills placed Harvin on the non-football injury list, ending his season.

Harvin Once Again Unable to Shake Migraine Issues

Buffalo re-signed Harvin in early November as it looked to bolster the receiving corps amid a series of injuries that decimated the group. The Florida product made 19 catches across five games for the team in 2015 before announcing his retirement in April.

He's failed to make much of an impact in two games since his comeback. He didn't make a catch in his season debut against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 9 and then made just two grabs for six yards against the Cincinnati Bengals coming out of the team's bye.

Matthew Fairburn of NYup.com passed along comments from the 28-year-old veteran about his health status and mindset as he prepared to return after he signed last month.

"I think at this point in my career, it's important for me to listen to my body, listen to my coaches and not just think I can be that dog and overcome everything," Harvin said. "I'm mentally where I need to be. I'm focused, very focused. I'm rejuvenated, so we'll see what happens."

Harvin, who has a history of migraine problems, now has no timetable to get back on the field following the latest setback.

The Bills' wideout group received a boost with the return of Sammy Watkins from foot trouble, but the situation as a whole is still a problem. The widespread injury issues, including Robert Woods' knee issue, will leave the likes of Justin Hunter and Dezmin Lewis to pick up the slack against the Raiders.
