GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Florida receiver Percy Harvin will have heel surgery next week, but coach Urban Meyer expects the speedy playmaker to be fine for fall practice.
``It's not a career-threatening injury,'' Meyer said Friday. ``It's a very minor surgery, probably an eight-week recovery and then he'll be full speed for offseason. They're saying in June we should be able to get him cranked up, for sure July.''
Meyer said the surgery will be performed Monday in North Carolina by team physician Dr. Pete Indelicato, with consultation from renowned foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson.
The Gators hope the surgery will relieve years of pain in Harvin's right heel, which has bothered him off and on since high school.
It was initially treated as tendinitis at Florida, but the pain persisted and eventually caused soreness in his knee and hip.
Despite the nagging injury, Harvin ran for 764 yards and six touchdowns last season and caught 59 passes for 858 yards and four scores.
