Rex on Harvin: He did all he could to play

While Rex Ryan was elated to have finally posted a home win after three straight losses at home, he did turn solemn when asked about Percy Harvin’s injury problems after being placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Ryan shed some light on Harvin’s condition, which involves chronic pain in his knee and hip.

“He’s in chronic pain,” said Ryan. “It was something we were hoping he could come back from the things, but technically it’s the knee the quad, he’s just in chronic pain. This kid did everything he could to play. That’s the sad part about it. He wanted to play in the worst way. He’d be here all the time, all through the break, cold tubs, whatever we thought could get him better this kid tried. But at the end of the day he just couldn’t do it. That’s a real shame.”

There were reports early Sunday that although Harvin intends to continue his NFL career, he is slated for knee surgery this week. Ryan would only confirm that the receiver would be undergoing some kind of procedure.

“I don’t know the exact thing about knee surgery or whatever, but I know he is having a procedure,” said Ryan. “That much I know.”
