Percy Harvin Status Update: Vikings WR Has Bruised Ribs, Should Play

Despite being listed as questionable and missing Thursday's practice, Vikings WR/KR Percy Harvin is expected to play in the Sunday night game against the Bears.

After leaving last week's game with a rib injury, Harvin was limited in practice on Wednesday and used Thursday to get an X-ray, which revealed there were no breaks in his ribs. Head coach Leslie Frazier said he decided to give Harvin the day off anyway. He will be wearing extra padding around his ribs, according to a report.

This news comes on the heels of Bernard Berrian being re-inserted into the starting lineup after being benched for disciplinary reasons last week, meaning Donovan McNabb has all his "weapons" at his disposal. Consider Harvin a playable option if you're suffering from bye-week syndrome.
