The Minnesota Vikings are listing wide receiver Percy Harvin
as day-to-day after he “badly” sprained his left ankle last weekend, reports
the Associated Press. Harvin said that he hopes to play, but he’s considered
very questionable considering the extent of his injury.
"I'm just going to go
day by day. Like I said, I'm in a lot of pain. There's a lot of swelling right
now," Harvin said. "My whole ankle, all the way around, is swollen.
So we've got a lot of work to do."
Harvin entered the weekend
already hampered by a hamstring injury, and he rolled his ankle while being
tackled in the third quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Following
the game the receiver listed himself as a “long shot” to be ready to suit up
against the Lions.
Despite appearing on the team’s injury report for another
week, running back Adrian Peterson was able to put together another monster
performance. Tight end John Carlson was also on the team’s injury report last
week, but he’s expected to return this weekend against the Detroit Lions.
