Harvin (head) plans to retire, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. Harvin came out of retirement to play for the Bills last season, only to be sidelined after two games by the migraines that have bothered him throughout his career. A first-round selection back in 2009, the speedy 28-year-old is apparently calling it quits for good. He isn't fielding offers in free agency -- which may or may not have been the case at this time last year.
Harvin was placed on the Bills' reserve/non-football illness list Monday, ending his season. Harvin came out of retirement to play a pair of games for the Bills before missing Buffalo's latest couple contests due to severe migraine headaches. With those issues continuing lately, he'll now be shut down for the season, which will presumably result in him considering calling it quits on his injury-troubled career once again.
Harvin (migraine) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Harvin's migraine issues will prevent him playing for a second consecutive week. The Bills are extremely banged up at the wide receiver position, as Robert Woods (knee) is also out this week and both Sammy Watkins (foot) and Marquise Goodwin (wrist) are injured too, but it appears the latter two will be able to suit up and lead the Bills' receiving corps in Week 13.
Harvin (illness) was not spotted at Friday's practice, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Harvin has not gotten on the practice field since coming down with migraines last Thursday, and it appears that will remain the case Friday. Unless he is able to get some work in behind the scenes over the next couple days, it's looking unlikely he will be able to give it a go in Week 13.
Harvin (illness) was not at practice Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. With Harvin still dealing with migraines, his status for Sunday's game against the Raiders looks cloudy. Since Robert Woods is also very iffy for the contest, it looks like the Bills' wideout corps will once again be taxed in Week 13. On the plus side, Sammy Watkins was spotted on the practice field Thursday.
