Percy Harvin could miss the rest of the preseason for the Buffalo Bills as he is given an injection to treat his hip problem.

The wide receiver is expected to miss at least a week of action after his hip ‘never really responded’ to treatment, and he was given a platelet-rich plasma injection it was given says Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan according to ESPN.

Ryan said: “He’s so itching to get back, that that’s why we sped it up. We were going to wait four days to give him the shot. We gave it to him early. Hopefully he responds on it.”

The target return date for Harvin is the August 29 preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, at the least by their last preseason game on September 3 against the Detroit Lions. If the problem persists, he could miss the season opener.

Ryan said: “He’s so itching to get back, that that’s why we sped it up. We were going to wait four days to give him the shot. We gave it to him early. Hopefully he responds on it.”

“He doesn’t want to go into [the regular-season opener] with no game work. He’s trying to get back on the field.”

Harvin has missed more than half the regular season games he’s been eligible for over the past three years due to injuries. With LeSean McCoy looking to be out for some time thanks to a hamstring problem now too, the Bills appear to be having a lot of problems on offense this offseason.

The Bills will want to have their offense in full strength by the start of the regular season, so resting Harvin until the opener wouldn’t be a bad thing, as it means he’ll be close to 100 per cent by week one.
