Vikings receiver Percy Harvin was questionable for Sunday’s game with a hip injury. He played, and he played well. Until he aggravated the injury.
According to Tom Pelissero of 1500espn.com, Harvin will have an MRI on Monday.
“We knew coming into the game that it was going to get tight,”
Harvin said after the game, per Pelissero. “Just sitting on the sidelines for a while, it kept tightening up,
and it was hard to get loose. When it came to the fourth quarter I got

Harvin said that the hip “just grabs. . . . I can’t really get to the
top of my speed. It kind of grabs a little bit, and it’s hard to stop
and go. It’s something I’ll keep treating, and each week hopefully,
it’ll get better.”
The Vikings also lost linebacker Ben Leber, who suffered a back injury in the second half and left via a cart. Middle linebacker E.J. Henderson’s brother, Erin, replaced Leber.
