Percy Harvin To Have Shoulder Surgery


Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin revealed on his Twitter page tonight that he needs to have offseason shoulder surgery. Don’t freak out though. This is apparently nothing more than a minor hiccup for the Vikings best wide receiver.

@Percy_Harvin
Just found out I will need surgery on shoulder

Then Harvin let us know he won’t be out for long…

@Percy_Harvin
Recovery should be quick I will be ready for otas

Later NFL Network insider Jason LaCanfora said the surgery will only have Harvin not 100% for a few weeks and this is nothing more than a routine clean up. Back to your Monday evening everyone. Isn’t there a big basketball game tonight?
