Buffalo Bills wide receiver Percy Harvin is reportedly contemplating his future in the NFL amid frustration over persistent injuries, according to multiple reports.

Harvin sat out of the Bills’ Week 6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and was ruled out for Buffalo’s game on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

Harvin has been dealing with a hip injury, and did not join the team in London for personal reasons. On Thursday, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo Newsreported that Harvin could be considering retirement. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Harvin was upset about being sidelined indefinitely with injuries, but was not planning on retiring.

At a press conference Thursday, coach Rex Ryan would not expand on Harvin’s situation.

“I don’t know where he is right now,” Ryan said.

Harvin is in his seventh NFL season. After spending time with the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets, he signed a three-year contract with the Bills this off-season that will pay him $6 million this year. The Bills can void the final two years of Harvin’s contract, and they are reportedly comfortable moving forward without him, Carucci reports.

In five games this season, Harvin has caught 19 passes for 218 yards and one touchdown.

The Bills and the Jaguars kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET on Sunday.
