Harvin Played Championship with Hairline Fracture in Ankle

| | Comments (140) | TrackBacks (0)

Everyone told you UF's Percy Harvin had an ankle sprain. Everyone said he'd be close to full speed for the championship game...even Harvin himself.

For the last six weeks, Harvin had been limited to nine plays per practice.

Then, in the championship game, Harvin rushed for 122 yards and added 49 more receiving, and scored on a 2-yard run in what Urban Meyer called "one of the guttiest performances I've ever been around."

All of it done with a hairline fracture in the ankle.

More after the jump...

While Louis Murphy had been gimpy on a left knee sprain (was that broken too?), Harvin had bigger issues. According to Hal Habib's article in the Palm Beach Post,

""A lot of people thought it was a high ankle sprain, but I had a hairline fracture," Harvin said. "Any time I got tackled, it would hurt the bone, but we had six weeks, so I knew I would give it a go.""

It took the Gators three plays to get Harvin the ball and see what he could do. After the game, Harvin said he played at 98.5%. Teammates doubted that, and maybe that makes his performance even more special...

""To be honest with you, he said he was 90 percent - I don't think he was anywhere near that," fellow receiver David Nelson said. "He was probably 70-75 percent. After practice yesterday, he was limping around. We knew he was hurt. That guy was hurting so bad, you could see it in his eyes."

You also could see it in receivers coach Billy Gonzales' eyes as he wrapped Harvin in a bear hug as the confetti fluttered around them in the post-game celebration.

"He had probably been taking only nine snaps a day in practice over the last week and that was it," Gonzales said. "So for him to come out and give the performance that he did, I'm so proud of that young man. It shows the kind of toughness he has.""

In the fourth quarter, some may remember Harvin laying on the ground after just rushing for 64 yards on consecutive plays (52 and 12), and Oklahoma safety Nic Harris pulling on the ankle after the tackle. Harvin popped up pretty quickly.

""Oh yeah," Harvin said. "I had to let him know that he tried to hurt me but it didn't work.""

Not much worked for the Sooners in the championship game, and Harvin exemplifies just how little Oklahoma did execute offensively or defensively.

I am glad you brought this light Scott. I know Littal was irked that he didn't get the offesive MVP award.

I hope other media outlets pick this up

This makes me even more upset that he didn't get the MVP award. You could tell he was no where near 100%. But "God's Quarterback" is getting all the pub today. Very irrating to me.

Thats the Machine I was talking about in my article, the DNA of an MVP.
Mind you, I dont doubt that Tebow is a good dude. We need more like him, but they are building him up so much, they are making him superhuman.

I was robbed but I will be a much better NFL player

I am amazed with it. It is a good thing for my research. Thanks
