The last Minnesota Vikings fans heard from the team's coaching staff and front office, star receiver Percy Harvin had not yet traveled from his home in Florida back to Minnesota to take his season-ending physical. According to NFL.com, coach Leslie Frazier said Tuesday that issue has been resolved. "It went well. He's fine. He's cleared," Frazier told the website. "All the medical was good." Frazier told NFL.com that Harvin showed up at Winter Park in a good frame of mind and that, We'll see where it goes from there. Harvin, who was leading the NFL in receptions when he suffered an ankle sprain in Week 9, was expected to only miss a week or two, but it was later revealed he had a Grade 3 sprain that involved tearing of ligaments. He was week to week for a month before the team abruptly put him on season-ending injured reserve Dec. 5. From that time until Frazier and general manager Rick Spielman's season-ending press conferences, Harvin was away from the team as it made its improbable late-season push to the playoffs. That led to speculation that Harvin who complained last offseason about unresolved issues he had with the team on the first day of minicamp and the Vikings might not be on the best of terms heading into this offseason, but Spielman dispelled that thinking. "Percy comes to work every day," the general manager said Jan. 10. "Everybody sees what Percy puts on the field. He plays the game as hard, or harder, than anyone else in the NFL, the effort that he puts up out there. So, we have no issues with Percy Harvin." That doesn't mean Harvin and the team won't be at odds this offseason, however. The 24-year-old No. 22 overall pick in the 2009 draft is entering the final year of his rookie deal that pays him a 1.55 million base salary. He'll be looking for a big raise, probably before the start of the season, and the Vikings have a history of locking up their top players to long-term deals before a contract year. That means, even though he's reportedly finally healthy, the news of Harvin passing a physical won't be the last regarding him in the next few months.
