Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin was able to
return and practice Wednesday in a limited capacity, providing fans and fantasy
owners alike hope he would play this weekend against the Green Bay Packers.
However, Harvin did not practice for the remainder of the week, according to
Tom Pelissero of ESPN 1500, and is unlikely to play tomorrow.
In the two minutes of practice I saw before getting the boot with the test of the media, Percy Harvin wasn't on the field. #Vikings

Harvin has missed the Vikings last two games due to a
sprained left ankle. He was able to return to practice to test the injured
ankle on Wednesday, but he continued to have issues pushing off and changing
direction, according to coach Leslie Frazier.
Frazier said Harvin hasn’t sustained a setback after
practicing Wednesday and not returning the field the rest of the week. Instead
the wide receiver simply hasn’t made the improvement the team was looking for.
