According to Ian Rapoport, it appears “very doubtful” that Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin will be able to play Sunday against the Lions.

This is bad news for the Vikings offense as Harvin is their only proven weapon in the passing game. Quarterback Christian Ponder has struggled mightily over the last three games and losing his top receiving target will only make matters worse. With Harvin struggling to walk, it appears he won’t play Sunday. Look for the Lions defense to stack in eight players in the box as the Vikings will likely go to Adrian Peterson on the ground early and often as he’s now their only offensive weapon.
