The Vikings were considering their replacement possibilities for Percy Harvin on Friday. Plus, the Bears ruled out CB Tim Jennings, who leads the league in interceptions.
Chicago cornerback Tim Jennings, who sprained his shoulder late in Sunday's game against Seattle, will miss Week 14 against Minnesota.Fantasy Spin:Jennings leads the NFL with eight picks this season, so obviously losing him is a crushing blow to the Chicago secondary, but the Vikings without Percy Harvin aren't a big threat to win the game through the air.
