NFL news roundup: Percy Harvin has 'little procedure,' Travis Lewis suspended and more

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin had a "little procedure" on his hip, Detroit Lions linebacker Travis Lewis was suspended and more you might have missed from Tuesday.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin underwent a "little procedure" on his hip, according to head coach Pete Carroll on Tuesday. Harvin returned to action in Week 11 after spending the season recovering from hip surgery, but suffered a setback and missed the team's Week 13 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. It's unclear when Harvin will play again.

Here's what else you might have missed from Tuesday in the NFL:

Lewis suspended

Detroit Lions linebacker Travis Lewis has been suspended by the NFL after violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Lewis is primarily a special teams player and was taken in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft. It's unclear what the substance in question was or if he'll appeal the suspension.

Ridley's time up in New England?

New England Patriots running back Stevan Ridley was benched in Week 12 after losing a fumble early against the Denver Broncos. It was his fourth fumble of the season and the third in three games. Every time this happens, it's said that Ridley should ride the bench for a little bit and work on his ball security before resuming his role, but there are now those who believe he's running out of chances. It certainly seems that way.

Titans to sign Schiancoe

The Tennessee Titans are set to sign tight end Visanthe Schiancoe. Delanie Walker and Craig Stevens are both dealing with concussions and could miss time. Schianco played for the Baltimore Ravens most recently, spending training camp with them. He's played for the New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings and the Patriots throughout his career.

Vikings break ground on stadium

The Minnesota Vikings broke ground on their new stadium on Tuesday. The new $1 billion project is expected to take at least two years, and the team hopes to have it ready by the 2016-17 season. The Vikings will play the 2014 and 2015 seasons at TCF Bank stadium, home of the University of Minnesota football team.

Cribbs likely out for year, Reynaud signed

The New York Jets could be without kick returner Josh Cribbs for the remainder of the season. Cribbs sustained a shoulder injury that head coach Rex Ryan described as "bad." Cribbs has been solid this year, so the Jets definitely need someone to step into the role. The team signed Darius Reynaud on Tuesday, who's likely to take over for Cribbs. Reynaud is a solid returner, but lost his job in Tennessee after a string of miscues on special teams.
