The season of Vikings receiver Percy Harvin ended last month, due to an ankle injury suffered against the Seahawks.
The Vikings kept him on the roster for several weeks, but recently put him on injured reserve.
Harvin said Saturday on Twitter that he’ll be having “minor” surgery. Though he didn’t say that the procedure will be performed on his ankle, that’s the most reasonable conclusion.
Via the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings declined comment.
Selected in round one of the 2009 draft, Harvin has one year remaining on his rookie contract. It is believed that the Vikings will try to sign him to an extension in the offseason. “Try” could be the key word; Harvin has proven to be a key member of the team’s offense, and he’ll want to be paid accordingly.
