[Editor’s note: The official injury report circulated by the NFL shows that Harvin did not practice. So our prior version of this item indicated that Harvin did not practice. The official report sent out by the the Vikings indicate that Harvin did practice. So apparently, he did. Then again, the Vikings haven’t had an ideal week when it comes to reporting facts.]
Coach Brad Childress said Thursday that he expected rookie receiver Percy Harvin to return to practice on Friday. And Harvin did indeed practice, on a limited basis.
Harvin, who was named the Diet Pepsi Rookie of the Week after returning a kickoff 88 yards for a score against the Steelers, is listed as questionable.
Fullback Fahu Tahi, in an inteview that airs at some point between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. ET on Sporting News Radio’s Todd Wright Tonight, suggested that the illness from which Harvin was suffering has no relation to his past issues with migraines.
Also, cornerback Antoine Winfield will miss the game due to a foot that reportedly has a fractured bone in it. Receiver Bernard Berrian (hamstring), linebacker Jasper Brinkley (hamstring), and Tahi (knee)
Quarterback Brett Favre (hip), linebacker E.J. Henderson (knee), linebacker Ben Leber (calf), cornerback Karl Paymah (quadricep), and receiver Darius Reynaud (hamstring) are probable.
Favre did not complete a full practice all week. However, the probable designation means that there is a virtual certainty that he’ll be available for normal duty, and it’s more than virtually certain that he wouldn’t miss Sunday’s game at Lambeau Field, even if he were missing a limb.
For the Packers, running back Korey Hall (calf) and receiver Jordy Nelson (knee)
are out. Tight end Jermichael Finley (knee) and center Jason Spitz (back)
“Questionables” include tackle Chad Clifton (ankle), safety Derrick Martin (hamstring), and defensive end Jarius Wynn (hamstring).
Linebacker Clay Matthews (jaw), quarterback Aaron Rodgers (foot), guard Josh Sitton (hand), tackle Mark Tauscher (knee), and cornerback Charles Woodson (hip) are probable.
