Percy Harvin Still Doubtful For Sunday

Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier mentioned on Friday that Percy Harvin is still doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Lions, but apparently has a remote chance of suiting up.

He still has … a little less than 48 hours to have a chance to continue to improve,” Frazier said, via ESPN 1500 Twin Cities. “He’ll continue to get treatment. If it comes to it, we would definitely work him out before the game and get him out there if it’s possible. … He’d have to make quite a bit of recovery (Saturday) for us to say, ‘OK, we’ll wait until Sunday to see what you can do. But it’s possible.”

We’ll know more Sunday morning when Harvin tests out his troublesome ankle.

According to Ian Rapoport, it appears “very doubtful” that Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin will be able to play Sunday against the Lions.

This is bad news for the Vikings offense as Harvin is their only proven weapon in the passing game. Quarterback Christian Ponder has struggled mightily over the last three games and losing his top receiving target will only make matters worse. With Harvin struggling to walk, it appears he won’t play Sunday. Look for the Lions defense to stack in eight players in the box as the Vikings will likely go to Adrian Peterson on the ground early and often as he’s now their only offensive weapon.
