Minnesota receiver Percy Harvin did not practice on Monday when the team returned to work after its bye week. Harvin is still working through a badly sprained left ankle that caused him to miss the game against Detroit before the bye. Coach Leslie Frazier says his leading receiver hasn't suffered any setbacks. But Frazier did say it was still too sore for Harvin to go Monday. Receiver Michael Jenkins also missed practice with a sore foot. An MRI revealed no structural damage. The Vikings are also taking it easy with running back Adrian Peterson, who has been bothered by a sore left ankle. Peterson was at practice on Monday, but on a limited basis. The Vikings play at Chicago on Sunday. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
