Percy Harvin injury: Vikings WR out Sunday, won't travel to Green Bay

Stephen Dunn

Breaking news came out of Minneapolis on Saturday afternoon, when the Vikings announced wide receiver Percy Harvin is out for Sunday's game against the Packers. Harvin will not travel with the team to Green Bay.

The Minnesota Vikings are still in the thick of the NFC Wild Card chase but will go into Sunday's game against Green Bay without one of their most important players: Star receiver Percy Harvin. The team announced via their Twitter feed on Saturday that Harvin is out against the Packers and won't travel with the team.

It will be the third straight game Harvin has missed since injuring his ankle November 4 against Seattle. Despite his time away, Harvin still leads Minnesota with 62 receptions for 677 yards, averaging nearly 11 yards per reception in 2012. The Vikings are 1-1 in the two games Harvin is missed.

Now Minnesota will go to Green Bay Sunday without Harvin, and with the chance at a Wild Card slipping away. Minnesota stands at 6-5 on the season, but has lost three of their last four including last Sunday against Chicago at home.

And for Minnesota, the schedule only gets tougher after Sunday.

In their final four regular season games, the Vikings will host both Green Bay and Chicago, as well as visit Houston on December 23.
