After signing recently with the Bills, how much time will Percy Harvin see this week?
The Bills have been searching for answers at wide receiver all season. Even when Sammy Watkins was in the lineup they struggled to move the ball through the air. They had their best overall game of the season passing last week when Tyrod Taylor completed 28 of his 37 passes for 289 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Robert Woods had career-highs in both receptions (10) and yards (162). He finally found some chemistry with Taylor. Last week was the first time another receiver who Taylor has had chemistry with was in the lineup. Percy Harvin and Taylor worked well together last season connecting on at least four passes in each game that Harvin was in.
In 2015, Harvin played in just five weeks and then retired from football after struggling with injuries. The Bills, desperate for help at wide receiver, reached out to him and signed him just before the game against Seattle this year. He played 21 snaps against them but had zero catches and was never targeted.
The team admitted he was a bit limited against Seattle but this week against the Bengals they think he is ready to go after having three weeks to get in NFL game shape. He would be a huge addition to the passing game if he can regain that bond he shared with Tyrod Taylor last season, and if Robert Woods can continue to play like he did last week.
On the final slide, we’ll ask a question we’d had to ask too many times this season. Will we see Marcell Dareus on the field this week?
