I Consider That a Success:
Because look at our roster. Percy Harvin? Jerome Simpson? Phil Loadholt? Kevin Williams? I was sure that they'd either be getting busted for smuggling drugs, eating people, or taking "dietary supplements" that would end up in a child's back pack and get your ass sent to jail. I was SURE something would happen. Would Jamarca Sanford kill someone? Would Antoine Winfield get in trouble from stealing blood from the morgue? Would Jared Allen lasso an underaged teen? You give these professionals seven days off to do whatever they want, and something was bound to happen. And yet it didn't! Not even Adrian Peterson was cited for starting a fight at a nightclub! That's a total win!
Now, we can all move along, get back to football, and prep for probably the worst stretch of football we've seen in quite sometime. Four division games? Another against possibly the best team in the league? Yay! Who else is excited?! Why couldn't ...

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.

The Minnesota Vikings were without wide receivers Percy
Harvin and Michael Jenkins as they returned to the practice field following
their bye yesterday, according to Tom Pelissero of ESPN1500.com, and the team
also said it would continue to “lighten” Adrian Peterson’s work load in
practice due to his sore left ankle.

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...
Vikings receiver Percy Harvin, who missed Week 10 due to an ankle injury, was not at Monday's practice, according to beat writer Tom Pelissero.Fantasy Spin:Harvin will likely be a game-time call Sunday whether he practices this week or not. The Vikings desperately need his receiving talents if they are going to have a chance when they visit Chicago.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Chris Kluwe is out supporting another cause, but this one hits a bit closer to home for the outspoken Minnesota Vikings punter.
Kluwe has written an open letter to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee, which was posted on Deadspin.com, and admonished voters for continually ignoring former Raiders punter Ray Guy, considered by many the best-ever...
If you are still for some reason reading major sports outlets instead of just getting your Vikings news from sites like THIS, then maybe you've already seen Peter King's newest "Monday Morning Quarterback."

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Returning to practice after a seven-day break, Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan sat at his locker with his shirt and forehead dripping with sweat and said the first few plays during practice, "it's hard to get your wind back."
Sullivan, like most of his teammates, got away during last week's bye week. Sullivan spent part of his time off...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. While the players for the Minnesota Vikings were stretched across the country enjoying their week off during the bye, coach Leslie Frazier and his coaching staff were still tucked inside the team's facilities at Winter Park.
Frazier and the coaches had taken time recently to evaluate the play, specifically the passing offense, before the 34-24 win against...
The Vikings have two ultra-productive stars on the field with Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin, but both showed determination and toughness to get where they are.
The Vikings are hoping a bye-week self-scout can help improve their passing offense. Christian Ponder entered the bye feeling better about his performance after a rough stretch, but how he performs under pressure is still a story being developed. What are the measurements used to evaluate that and what did he, Leslie Frazier and Rick Spielman say about it?

post-bye practice Monday after missing the last game with an ankle
