Harvin’s Presumed Absence Casts Even More Doubt
The man who dominated September and October hardly even saw action in November.
When Percy Harvin sprained his ankle on November 4th, just prior to the bye week, he was able to reenter that game and many presumed that was a sign that he would return to the field in a relatively short time span.
That has not proven to be true, and it appears that the Vikings will be without the multi-talented yardage machine on Sunday, in a must-win game at Green Bay.
Leslie Frazier said Harvin has not had any major setbacks, but simply has not improved as quickly as they had hoped, and the Vikings have officially listed him as “doubtful” for Sunday’s matchup.
This means Jarius Wright will again see extensive action in what will be his third week of activity. The Vikings coaches say they have designed plays specifically for Wright, so it is fair to say this will be a true test for the rookie.
