Found November 01, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
Both running back Adrian Peterson and wide receiver Percy Harvin were limited during Minnesota Vikings’ practice yesterday, but each player is expected to play this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks, reports Marc Sessler of NFL.com. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (ankle) and wide receiver Percy Harvin (hamstring) were limited in practice, but the team is only resting its two best players. While he’s landed on the Vikings’ injury report the last several weeks with an ankle ailment, Peterson has shown no signs of slowing down. He’s rushed for 278 yards over the past two weeks, and has 775 rushing yards and four touchdowns over his first five games of the season. Harvin has been nearly as impressive for Minnesota, as he’s been quarterback Christian Ponder’s favorite target this year. The 24-year-old has caught 60 passes for 667 yards and three touchdowns through five games.
