GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Florida receiver Percy Harvin might miss the rest of spring practice because of a nagging heel injury.
Harvin sat out practice Monday, wore a protective boot and was going to be re-evaluated before team doctors decide whether to shut him down for the spring.
``It's obviously not going to affect the fall,'' coach Urban Meyer said. ``It might affect the rest of the spring. They're going to get a second opinion.''
Harvin, Florida's most dynamic player, ran for 764 yards and six touchdowns last season and caught 59 passes for 858 yards and four scores.
But he hasn't played every game in either of his two seasons, missing time because of an ankle injury in 2006 and sitting out two games last year because of migraine headaches.
He's also missed practice because of a hip pointer, tendinitis in his Achilles' tendon/heel and tendinitis in his knee.
``He loses his mind sometimes when he gets hurt because he's so competitive,'' Meyer said. ``He just wants to be right. He's had this for over a year and a half. We've treated it as tendinitis. It might be something more than that.''
Frustrated by all the injuries, Harvin put in more time in the weight room and became one of the team's strongest players at his position. He opened spring practice around 200 pounds and hoped to avoid further injury.
``Percy's one of those guys that wants to be the best,'' Meyer said. ``He saw that strength could help him avoid injury. He's had little dings here and there, and that strength is going to help him.''
Receiver Louis Murphy also missed practice Monday because of a staph infection, but Meyer expected him to return to the field Wednesday.
