The Buffalo Bills placed wide receiver Percy Harvin on the season-ending injured reserve and activated cornerback Leodis McKelvin on Saturday.

Harvin missed the past two games and been bothered by nagging hip and knee injuries since training camp.

McKelvin was placed on the reserve/non-football-injury list in July with a broken right foot. He returned to practice Oct. 21.

The Bills (3-4) host the Miami Dolphins (3-4) on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

This is the latest setback in what has been an up-and-down career for Harvin, who was selected in the first round of the 2009 draft by Minnesota. The Bills were Harvin's third team in two seasons after he was traded last year by Seattle to the New York Jets.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 9. Watkins said that he “definitely” expects to play, but the non-practice on Friday is very worrisome. Watkins has been up and down this year, but without Percy Harvin in the lineup, he should see plenty of targets against Miami, assuming he plays. If Watkins is out, Robert Woods would be the team’s de facto WR1. The Bills kickoff early on Sunday.

Percy Harvin missed the Buffalo Bills' trip to London with a hip injury. The team is taking his potential return day by day.

NFL Media's Rand Getlin reported Monday that Harvin has met with the Bills and together with doctors, they're evaluating the extent of his hip injury, per a source briefed on the situation.

Two weeks ago we were discussing the possibility that Harvin could step away from football, with one source telling Around The NFL's Conor Orr retirement was certainly an option.

Fantasy Impact:

For now, the Bills are only focusing on the hip and they're taking Harvin's status one day at a time, per Getlin. Harvin missed the past two contests and has 19 catches for 218 yards and one score on the season. For a player who has dealt with injuries throughout his career, taking it one step at a time is the only option for him and the Bills.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring, probable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is probable for Week 7. The probable tag means that McCoy is good to go. The Bills are likely to go run-heavy with Tyrod Taylor, Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin sidelined.

Bills WR Percy Harvin will be sidelined 'indefinitely' with knee and hip injuries

Thursday, October 22, 2015, 10:35am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Percy Harvin has grown increasingly frustrated with hip and knee injuries that are expected to sideline him indefinitely but he is not contemplating retirement, a source told ESPN.

The Buffalo News reported earlier Thursday that Harvin was considering retiring because of a lingering hip injury that has limited his practice time this season and kept him out of Sunday's 34-21 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Impact:

Harvin can be cut in all formats as it looks like he's going to be sidelined a while, and his erratic production isn't worth waiting for. Robert Woods and Chris Hogan will see increased snaps in his absence, but the real beneficiary here is probably TE Charles Clay.

Bills could be without Percy Harvin Week 7

Monday, October 19, 2015, 12:39pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The Buffalo Bills may be shorthanded on offense against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London this week. With Sammy Watkins on crutches and in a walking boot, his running mate Percy Harvin is unlikely to play due to a lingering hip injury, according to ESPN.

Harvin sat out for Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and it sounds like the hip will keep him on the sidelines once again. Harvin was expected to be listed as probable before Sunday's game, but he was limited in practice Friday and was unable to go against the Bengals.

Harvin started the season strong, but he's struggled of late. Over the past three weeks -- including Sunday's missed game -- Harvin has caught just three passes for 26 yards. By comparison, he caught 16 passes for 192 yards and a touchdown in the first three games of the season.

Fantasy Impact:

It seems likely that the Bills will be without both Harvin and Watkins on Sunday, as they struggle to field a complete offense. Fortunately, LeSean McCoy returned this week and looked healthy, rushing 17 times for 90 yards and a touchdown. It's possible the Bills get back rookie RB Karlos Williams as well, and one would think they use a run heavy attack against the Jags. Charles Clay at TE could benefit as well.
