Vikings receiver Percy Harvin says he sprained his ankle in three places on Sunday. He has since missed three practices.
According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Harvin is officially doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Lions. It’s arguably the most winnable game left on a schedule that includes, after next Sunday’s bye, games against the Bears, Packers, Bears, Rams, Texans, and Packers.
Without Harvin, the Vikings will have to lean even more heavily on Adrian Peterson. And they’ll have to hope that players like Jerome Simpson finally step up and make a difference in the passing game.
