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. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 19, 2012 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.

Ponder under pressure a mixed bag for Vikings

The Vikings are hoping a bye-week self-scout can help improve their passing offense.
