Listed as doubtful with an ankle that he says was sprained in three places, the reality reportedly is that Vikings receiver Percy Harvin is out for Sunday’s “not ‘must’ win but game they’ve gotta have” against the Lions.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Harvin won’t play. We’ve heard something similar, though not as strong to justify saying with 100 percent certainty that Harvin won’t play.
That said, it would be a major surprise if he plays. The Vikings have a bye week coming up, which will give Harvin three weeks to recover, if he doesn’t play on Sunday against the Lions.
