NFL Media's Rand Getlin reported Monday that Harvin has met with the Bills and together with doctors, they're evaluating the extent of his hip injury, per a source briefed on the situation.
"He's in the building, I think," coach Rex Ryan confirmed during Monday's news conference. "He's obviously in the training room a little today. We'll see how it goes, but I know he wants to play and wants to contribute to this team."
For now, the Bills are only focusing on the hip and they're taking Harvin's status one day at a time, per Getlin.
Harvin missed the past two contests and has 19 catches for 218 yards and one score on the season. For a player who has dealt with injuries throughout his career, taking it one step at a time is the only option for him and the Bills.
Other injuries we are tracking Monday:
Pettine added that quarterback Josh McCown is sore and he is day-to-day. The veteran had X-rays on his ribs, but Pettine would not say if they came back negative.
- Tony Romo will "throw in some form" this week, according to Cowboys coach Jason Garrett. Garrett suggested Romo will get some individual work and perhaps some scout team work during the week. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport added that Romo is still "on target" to return when eligible, which is Week 11 against the Dolphins.
- Jets coach Todd Bowles said Monday that quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered torn ligaments in the thumb of his non-throwing hand and is day-to-day. He will need surgery at some point. Star wideout Brandon Marshall is dealing with toe and ankle ailments and Bowles said it is "too early to tell" if he will play this weekend against the Jaguars.
Geno Smith suffered a left shoulder bruise but there is no structural damage, according to Bowles. He is also day-to-day. Will the Jetsaddress the position with the trade deadling looming at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday? Bowles added that free agent Matt Flynn was a name the team was talking about looking into.
- Giants coach Tom Coughlin said they'll "push the envelope a little bit to test the conditioning" of pass-rusher Jason Pierre-Paul this week. He was signed over the weekend and the team is in the midst of utilizing a two-week roster exemption. Rapoport said Sunday on NFL GameDay there's a good chance he plays this week.
Rookie running back David Cobb could return from IR Boomerang this week, but Whisenhunt said there's no guarantee. Whether he gets carries right away would all be dependent on what kind of shape he is in, Whisenhunt added.
