NFL Injury Report:
The Minnesota Vikings were without wide receivers Percy
Harvin and Michael Jenkins as they returned to the practice field following
their bye yesterday, according to Tom Pelissero of ESPN1500.com, and the team
also said it would continue to “lighten” Adrian Peterson’s work load in
practice due to his sore left ankle.
#Vikings back on practice field. Percy Harvin and Michael Jenkins are absent.

Entering the bye week, the Vikings said they expected Harvin
to return in the team’s next game against the Chicago Bears. However, after
missing practice due to his injured ankle, Minnesota hasn’t updated the wide
receiver’s status for this weekend. Jenkins’ status for Sunday is also unclear
as he recovers from a foot injury.
It’s scary to think Peterson may be less than 100% this
season, as the All-Pro is already leading the NFL in rushing. However, it
appears that his ankle is still tender enough that the team doesn’t want to
push it during practice. Come game time, though, Peterson has shown that there’s
not much that can stop him.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The bye week break helped Minnesota Vikings receiver Percy Harvin's recovery from a badly sprained ankle, but the team's leading receiver is still not able to return to practice.
Harvin, who is tied for eighth in the league with 62 catches, suffered a sprain in three places in his left ankle in the Week 9 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He missed the...
Minnesota receiver Percy Harvin did not practice on Monday when the team returned to work after its bye week.
Harvin is still working through a badly sprained left ankle that caused him to miss the game against Detroit before the bye. Coach Leslie Frazier says his leading receiver hasn't suffered any setbacks. But Frazier did say it was still too sore for Harvin to go Monday...
We've already established this week that the 2012 Minnesota Vikings bye week has been a success. No one was arrested for grab assing a high schooler, no one was caught smuggling drugs across the Mexican border, and Phil Loadholt decided not to eat a human being during the week. Everyone wins! But that doesn't mean people didn't do ANYTHING. As Vikings quarterback Christian...
Vikings WR Percy Harvin is ready to test his sprained ankle in hopes of playing Sunday after two weeks off.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Returning to practice after a seven-day break, Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan sat at his locker with his shirt and forehead dripping with sweat and said the first few plays during practice, "it's hard to get your wind back."
Sullivan, like most of his teammates, got away during last week's bye week. Sullivan spent part of his time off...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. While the players for the Minnesota Vikings were stretched across the country enjoying their week off during the bye, coach Leslie Frazier and his coaching staff were still tucked inside the team's facilities at Winter Park.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Chris Cook was more than frustrated when he left the field on Oct. 25 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after suffering an arm injury that he thought might wipe out another season.
Cook, two seasons since being the Minnesota Vikings' top pick in the 2010 draft, had already been through plenty, his first two seasons cut short by first injuries and then a legal...
The Vikings are hoping a bye-week self-scout can help improve their passing offense. Christian Ponder entered the bye feeling better about his performance after a rough stretch, but how he performs under pressure is still a story being developed. What are the measurements used to evaluate that and what did he, Leslie Frazier and Rick Spielman say about it?
The Vikings aren’t sure which Bears QB they will face, but there is a discernible difference in their performances this year. We look at their performances so far and get input from Leslie Frazier and Jared Allen.
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Pro Football Writer The Minnesota Vikings must play perhaps their best yet this season to emerge from the last six games with a playoff spot, let alone a winning record.
The defensive line will have a big part in this.
They visit Chicago on Sunday and Green Bay the week after, facing the NFC North co-leaders...
