Update: Harvin active for Minnesota.
Harvin has battled sore ribs throughout the season, but while he may miss or be limited during practices, the injury has not kept Harvin out of the lineup. The 2009 first-round pick out of Florida leads the team with 43 receptions and 459 receiving yards. A multi-purpose threat, Harvin also has 224 yards and a touchdown on 28 rushing attempts and has averaged 29.4 yards on 10 kick returns, though No. 3 running back Lorenzo Booker has handled those duties over the last few weeks.
The Vikings' No. 1 receiver, Harvin & Co. will be going up against a Falcons' pass defense which ranks 26th in the NFL and that will be without cornerback Kelvin Hayden, who was ruled out with a neck injury. Falcons starting cornerback Brent Grimes is questionable, but expected to play with an injured reserve.
