Harvin's Surgery was Emergency Appendectomy

Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin underwent an emergency appendectomy on Saturday, the team's head coach Leslie Frazier confirmed Sunday after a road win over St. Louis.

Harvin originally tweeted Saturday that he was to undergo "minor surgery," but he did not specify as to what the procedure would entail.

The playmaking wide receiver was placed on injured reserve earlier this month after missing three games with an injured ankle he suffered Nov. 4 in a game at Seattle.

Harvin this year played in nine games for Minnesota and racked up 677 receiving yards and three touchdowns, 96 rushing yards and a touchdown, and one kickoff return for a touchdown.

The 2013 season will be the final year of Harvin's rookie contract with Minnesota, after which he would become a free agent unless he and the team agree on an extension beforehand.
