“Personal reasons” keep Percy Harvin from traveling to UK

Wide receiver Percy Harvin was out of the Bills lineup last weekend and a hip injury was the reason given for his absence.

There were reports earlier this week that Harvin would miss this weekend’s game in London against the Jaguars for the same reason. It looks like that’s half right. Harvin is not in London with the team and coach Rex Ryan said it’s unlikely that he’ll be playing on Sunday, but that Harvin has been “excused for personal reasons.”

“No, I think right now this is a personal thing right now,” Ryan said, via the Buffalo News. “That’s where it is. ... We know he was battling the hip and things but this is a personal issue.”

Ryan said after last Sunday’s game that there was a player with a visa problem that might interfere with travel, but wouldn’t get into the nature of Harvin’s issue or if it was a long-term concern.

Running back Karlos Williams and right tackle Seantrel Henderson are both dealing with concussions and didn’t make the trip. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams is also back in the states after suffering a knee injury during the loss to the Bengals.
