The Buffalo Bills will likely be without the services of Percy Harvin today when they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. Harvin, the team’s starting receiver since being re-signed three weeks ago, has been dealing with migraines according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Harvin missed three games due to migraines during the early part of his career with the Minnesota Vikings. In 2013, he said those problems were behind him after being diagnosed with sleep apnea.
“I haven’t had a migraine in two years now,” Harvin said in 2013. “Been fully healthy from that aspect so everything’s been good. I’m going to knock on wood that nothing resurfaces but it’s been all great.”
Unfortunately, that streak hasn’t continued. He missed practice all week and will be unavailable today.
Harvin played 46 of Buffalo’s 64 offensive snaps a week ago and had emerged into a key figure in Buffalo’s passing attack. Sammy Watkins is returning from injury this week, but Robert Woods will be out with a knee injury, leaving the receiver corps dismally thin. Expect Brandon Tate and Justin Hunter to get increased playing time on the outside and Marquise Goodwin to continue playing the deep threat role.
