Percy Harvin is not expected to play Week 12 when the Minnesota Vikings take on the Chicago Bears, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Harvin was held out of practice Thursday while recovering from the ankle injury he suffered in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks.
There is no word yet whether or not Harvin is expected back for Week 13 when the Vikings play the Green Bay Packers. Harvin has 677 yards receiving, 96 yards rushing and four total touchdowns on the season.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners hopefully have a suitable replacement lined up already having dealt with Harvin's absence last week. Expect Jerome Simpson and Michael Jenkins to see more targets from Christian Ponder, though neither receiver did much to take advantage of the extra opportunities last week.
