UF's Harvin may miss remainder of spring with heel injury

GAINESVILLE — 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."

Harvin 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 with migraine headaches.

He also has missed practice because of a hip pointer, tendinitis in his Achilles' tendon/heel and tendinitis in his knee.

Also, tackle Torrey Davis' legal issues have been resolved.

Davis, 19, was charged with possession of alcohol by a minor Jan.  19. Monday, he signed a deferred prosecution agreement with the State Attorney's Office, according to court documents.

Davis cannot be get into any additional legal trouble and must pay $125 or complete 12½ hours of community service within the next four months.

Davis is involved in spring practice on a limited basis. Meyer said before spring practice that Davis has some academic issues he must address to remain eligible.

GEORGIA: Receiver Tony Wilson had surgery after suffering a left ankle fracture Saturday. Wilson will have a second surgery in about eight weeks to remove screws placed to stabilize the ankle. He should be able to play this season.

Times staff writer Antonya English contributed to this report.
