NFL Trade Rumors:
Vikings WR Percy Harvin suited up for practice Thursday but ultimately did not practice with the team, according to Mark Craig.
Sidelined the last two games by a left ankle injury, Harvin hasn’t been of much help to the Vikings lately and his suiting up is not a bad sign.
ESPN’s Kevin Seifert tweets that Harvin “could barely jog today” and adds that it’s “hard to see him playing” against the Packers this weekend.
The Vikings are 0-2 without their star wide receiver, so it’s safe to assume that Adrian Peterson will be a focal point of their offense against a Green Bay defense that hasn’t been great against the run this season.
