EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The bye week break helped Minnesota Vikings receiver Percy Harvin's recovery from a badly sprained ankle, but the team's leading receiver is still not able to return to practice.
Harvin, who is tied for eighth in the league with 62 catches, suffered a sprain in three places in his left ankle in the Week 9 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He missed the next game and was given more time to treat the ankle, staying in town for rehab during Minnesota's bye in Week 11 when players were given the week off.

"We'll see where he is on Wednesday and hopefully we'll be able to see him do a little bit, Frazier said.
Receiver Michael Jenkins, who is fourth on the team with 28 catches, also missed practice Monday with a foot injury. Frazier said Jenkins will be re-evaluated on Wednesday...
