Percy Harvin Placed On Injured Reserve, Season Over

Ugh. - Stephen Dunn

The Vikings star receiver will not see the field again over his lingering ankle injury

Vikings star receiver Percy Harvin, the team's leading receiver and dynamic offensive playmaker, has been placed on injured reserve and will not play again in 2012.

Harvin was first injured against the Seattle Seahwaks on Nov. 4th, and hasn't played since. His injury was initially thought to be a high ankle sprain that would keep him out 2 or 3 games, and with the Vikings bye week coming 2 weeks after the Seahawks game, the thought at the time was the time missed would be minimal, and maybe even that one game prior to the bye.

Unfortunately, his ankle has not responded to treatment, and according to ESPN NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert, Harvin was heavily favoring his ankle during Wednesday's practice.

Needless to say, this creates a huge void in the Vikings offense, responsible for 30% of the Vikings pass offense this year, and the only reliable and consistent wide receiver target on the roster.

Although the Vikings haven't made any roster move, it seems like rookie Jarius Wright would be the guy to step up into Harvin's role for the remainder of the season. In limited action this year (3 games), he has 11 catches, 127 yards and one TD...and the only receiver to catch a pass over 50 yards all season.

What was a very limited offense became even more so a few minutes ago.
