Percy Harvin will miss Monday night’s game

Despite an extra day of rest and some newfound optimism on Sunday, Vikings receiver Percy Harvin is definitely out for Monday night’s game, according to NFL Network’s Steve Wyche.  Harvin reportedly didn’t make the trip to Detroit.

Harvin’s absence could especially be felt on a night where the Vikings quarterback figures to be under a lot of pressure.

Oh yeah, the quarterback.  Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune notes that Brett Favre wasn’t on the first bus to the stadium for the first time all year.  So there you go.
