Percy Harvin Not Present At Afternoon Practice

Dun dun DUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!

It was a busy day of news on the Percy Harvin front and it got busier on Wednesday afternoon when Harvin skipped practice at the Vikings' mandatory minicamp.

Harvin was present at a walkthrough on Wednesday morning, but was nowhere to be seen during practice. Unless the Vikings excused his absence, Harvin could be fined for skipping the practice. Coach Leslie Frazier said he didn't know if Harvin, who reportedly requested a trade a day after hinting at a training camp holdout, would be with the team on Thursday before trying to turn attention away from the missing wide receiver.

Now, per Kevin Seifert from ESPN on the Twitter earlier on, the fines for missing mini-camp practices are "discretionary," so the Vikings don't necessarily have to fine Percy Harvin. The fines can be up to $10,000 for missing one day of mini-camp, $30,000 for missing two days, and $60,000 for missing the entire camp. I'm not sure if they're going to at this point, because it may just serve to annoy Harvin further and exacerbate any issues that might already be out there.

I have a feeling that this is going to continue to be a hot topic for the foreseeable future. Hopefully this whole mess, whatever the genesis of it might be, will get straightened out before too much longer.
