Minneapolis, MN - Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier made it all but official Friday afternoon telling the media that Percy Harvin, who has missed the past two days of practice, will be listed as DOUBTFUL for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.
"The ability to push off and change direction seems to be giving him a little trouble," Frazier said. "I'll talk to him when I go back inside and see where he is. I'll talk to the trainers as well."
After missing the past two games, Harvin tested his injured ankle the past Wednesday but was moving around with a considerable limp. He was visibly struggling with pushing off of and cutting on the injured ankle and since then has only worked on catching drills.
"There's been no real setbacks," Frazier added. "He just hasn't made the improvement that we had hoped."
It's unclear at this point if Harvin will even travel with the team to Green Bay tomorrow, but either way it's clear that rookie Jarius Wright will continue to have an expanded role in Harvin's absence.
"He's definitely gaining confidence," Frazier said of Jarius Wright. "We're actually putting in some plays directly for him because of the confidence that he's shown and the confidence that we have in him."
On the season, Wright has 10 catches for 114 yards and one touchdown.
Outside of Percy Harvin, all other players including Kyle Rudolph (concussion) and Harrison Smith (concussion) are listed as PROBABLE for Sunday's game.
