Vikings WR Harvin to have shoulder surgery

EDINA, Minn. – Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin will have minor shoulder surgery soon to address a nagging injury he played with last season.

Harvin revealed the news via Twitter on Monday night, and Vikings coach Leslie Frazier confirmed it on Tuesday while attending a speaking event for his friend and former NFL coach, Tony Dungy. Frazier declined to specify which shoulder Harvin hurt, but he said he sprained the AC joint during the season.

Harvin felt some pain in recent weeks while he was lifting weights, and an examination revealed some damage.
