Things Not Looking Good For Percy Harvin's Status

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

According to the numerous folks that were able to observe parts of the Minnesota Vikings' practice session on Thursday, it sounds like wide receiver Percy Harvin has a real uphill climb ahead of him if he wants to play this Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

Harvin was the only member of the Vikings that didn't participate in the Thursday session. Coach Leslie Frazier generally like players to practice at least once leading up to the game if they're going to play, and Harvin is no exception.

"It would be hard to put him out there in a game without seeing him run around a little bit more than what he did on Wednesday," Frazier said. "We'll see what he can do (Friday), if he can do anything."

Considering the amount of time Harvin has missed, Frazier was asked if the injury was a high ankle sprain, something that keeps players out longer than a usual ankle sprain, or some type of other issue.

"It's still a sprain," Frazier said. "I haven't been told high ankle. So, you just have to work through it and pain tolerance is the key. How much he can tolerate?"

I'm not a doctor. . .nor do I play one on television or the internet. . .but I wonder what Harvin's "tolerance" was when the team put him back out on the field repeatedly in what was basically a lost cause against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. Can't help but think that if the Vikings had shown a bit more discretion in that one that Harvin's issues might not be so severe that three straight weeks off couldn't cure them. But, again, I'm not Percy Harvin or Leslie Frazier or Certified Athletic Trainer Eric Sugarman™, so I don't know what happened on the Vikings' sideline that afternoon.

Hopefully we'll have a fully operational Percy Harvin in the very near future. . .but it doesn't look like it's going to be this week.
