Percy Harvin has severe sprained ankle, fantasy status a 'longshot' for Week 10

Stephen Brashear

Percy Harvin is on crutches and has his ankle sprained in three different parts, making him a longshot to play in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

According to the Pioneer Press, Minnesota Vikings WR Percy Harvin is on crutches Monday and has his ankle sprained in three different parts. He is hopeful to play in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions, but admits it will be a "longshot".

Harvin suffered the injury in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks that sent him to the sidelines. He finished the game, but was only a decoy as he badly limped around.

Fantasy Impact: This is a crushing blow to the Vikings heading into a crucial divisional matchup with Detroit. It's also a crushing blow to fantasy owners heading into playoff races.

If Harvin is able to practice this week, then I would feel better about his game status, but fantasy owners should start hunting for a Plan B right now.
