With the Buffalo Bills taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars today at Wembley Stadium in London, the team will be without their leading receiver Percy Harvin.
Harvin, who missed last weeks loss against the Cincinnati Bengals due to a hip injury, has reportedly grown frustrated with his injury woes and would not play this week.
However, the Bills organization informed the media that Harvin’s absence is not solely due to his injury, as he is dealing with a “personal matter” that will also keep him out of action. Coach Rex Ryan refused to speculate on the timetable for his return.
While we do not know the nature of Harvin’s personal matter, he has been unable to shake the reputation of being an undependable and controversial player. He’s undoubtedly talented, but is his talent worth the trouble? Whether it’s the Vikings, Seahawks or Bills, Harvin is running out of fresh starts.
