Percy Harvin not expected to play; Brett Favre does light throwing

P. Harvin1

Percy Harvin is expected to miss another game because of his migraine headaches.

Harvin was listed as doubtful after missing another full practice.  He hasn’t really been at the Vikings facility all week.  Brett Favre made his first appearance at practice of the week, although he was limited.

“The fact that he felt comfortable at least releasing the football,” was important, coach Leslie Frazier said via Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.  “We just wanted him to do some soft tossing and just get a feel for the motion.”

Favre didn’t throw any deep passes and he’ll be a gametime decision.  This is the least amount of practice work he’s done all year, and yet we still don’t believe there’s any chance he’s sitting out Sunday.

Meanwhile left guard Steve Hutchinson (broken right thumb), left end Ray Edwards (high right ankle sprain), and wideout Joe Webb are all questionable.  Hutchinson and Edwards didn’t practice this week.  Cornerback Chris Cook and safety Tyrell Johnson are out.

    80% chance he starts, 1% chance he finishes.

    Curious as to where you are getting your info. Everyone else is saying that during the portion of the practice that was open to the media, Favre dropped back, but NEVER THREW A SINGLE PASS!

    Care to explain?

    No, the least amount of practice work he’s done was training camp.

    Favre did “light throwing”, but none of them were lasers.

    Maybe it’s a trap. The defensive backs will all be lined up along the line of scrimmage and Brett will throw a bullet to Percy 45 yards down the field.

    Where’s the Twinkie A-hole who fired off how these migraines were all under control about 2 months ago….oh yeah, hiding like every other loud mouth Queen fan who has since wised up.

    This team is in shambles, and Frazier is looking over his shoulder at job opportunites elsewhere….guaranteed.

    I’ll field this question….Leslie’s presser (the source) is where the info came from. Who is this “Everyone else” of whom you speak??

    Gonna be a tough week for the Vikes to win. If only they could play the Bills 16 times.

    I would about bet money Harvin is on the field Sunday. Favre maybe, maybe not.

    I had Harvin last year in a redraft league. He started despite his migranes then. His condition appears to be worse this year as he’s actually taken MORE time off for it ……………………….

    Wow, a Vikings thread and only 11 posts. Guess you guys need to go back to posting about the Steelers.

    Guess you (and PFT) don’t realize there is a big difference between throwing a pass and tossing the ball around.

    As for everyone else, now bout ANY other credible sports media source. Even the Article that Triple G stole his post from stated it………

    DOH!!!

    No wonder why the Vikings can trade so many picks they hit on one here and there, but then this happens. Solid player if he can make it onto the field, he could be a great player but he rarely practices. Practice does set back players, I don’t believe Clay Matthews has practiced as much as he would like lately and I think it has shown as well.

    Geez, these guys are dropping like flies.. Conditioning problem or just bad luck? Maybe a little bit of Brett Favre syndrome.
