Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin didn’t have quite the same return to health during Minnesota’s week off. Harvin didn’t participate in the Vikings’ workout on Monday as a result of the ankle injury that kept him out of the victory over the Lions in Week 10. Coach Leslie Frazier said that Harvin hasn’t had a setback and just wasn’t ready to get back on the field despite rehabbing last week.
“Most of the swelling is gone,” Frazier said, via Tom Pelissero of ESPN1500.com. “It’s just sore and pretty tender right now. So, we’ll see how he feels when we come back on Wednesday.”
Another wide receiver was missing for the Vikings on Monday as well. Michael Jenkins got an MRI on his foot after experiencing soreness during the bye week. There was no structural damage, leaving Frazier to say that they’ll also see how he’s doing when the team reconvenes on Wednesday.
The Vikings are in the middle of a multi-team scrap for Wild Card spots and will be a game out of the division lead if the Bears lose to the 49ers on Monday night. They also play the Bears next week, so getting Harvin back as soon as possible would be a very good thing for the Vikings.
