The Minnesota Vikings have listed wide receiver Percy Harvin as doubtful in Week 10. Head coach Leslie Frazier did offer a positive spin to the issue by stating, "He still has a little less than 48 hours to have a chance to continue to improve. He'll continue to get treatment. If it comes to it, we would definitely work him out before the game and get him out there if it's possible." Harvin is no longer using crutches.
Doubtful players almost never play, but hey, anything is possible. The Vikings probably would not want to risk playing Harvin if their record was better but the losses are piling up and playoff hopes are dwindling. Not to travel too far down the rabbit hole, but if Minnesota loses this game, they're effectively eliminated from the playoffs and you can look up how the tiebreaking procedures would play out since it's obviously a lot to explain here in this short write-up. If Harvin plays though, I'm starting him, the guy is that good. If he doesn't and the Vikings lose, there's really very little incentive to force or rush him into action in the following weeks which may mean even more missed time. All this also excludes the potential of him having a setback or re-injury should he play.
