Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE
If the Minnesota Vikings are going to win their second straight game, and their third straight against a division opponent, it appears that they'll once again have to do so without one of their most potent weapons.
After being extremely limited in Friday's practice at Winter Park, Vikings' head coach Leslie Frazier said that wide receiver/kick returner Percy Harvin would be listed as doubtful for Sunday's match-up at Soldier Field against the Chicago Bears.
Harvin injured the ankle in three different places in the Vikings' Week 9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and even the combination of missing the Vikings' Week 10 victory over the Detroit Lions and the bye week wasn't enough to get him healed to the point where he will play on Sunday.
Frazier also said that, regardless of what happens with Harvin, rookie Jarius Wright would be active for the second game in a row. Wright made a big splash in his debut with the Vikings, catching three passes for 65 yards and a touchdown, including a 54-yard bomb on the game's first series.
The Vikings will also be using some combination of Marcus Sherels, A.J. Jefferson, and Josh Robinson to handle return duties on Sunday as well if Harvin can't go.
Harvin is, apparently, the only member of the team whose status for Sunday is in question. We'll have the final injury reports for both teams up here sometime this afternoon.
