EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings will likely be without wide receiver Percy Harvin again this weekend because of his sprained left ankle.
Harvin was listed as doubtful for the Sunday's game at Chicago. He tried to test his foot with some pre-practice work on Friday, but coach Leslie Frazier said he couldn't put much weight on it.
Harvin sprained his left ankle at Seattle on Nov. 4 and didn't play against Detroit on Nov. 11. The bye gave Harvin last week to heal, but he still hasn't regained enough strength and mobility in the joint to rejoin the team. Harvin entered this week second in the NFL in total yards behind Green Bay's Randall Cobb.
Left guard Charlie Johnson and nose tackle Letroy Guion were listed as questionable with toe injuries.
WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals say they have agreed to a one-year deal with 40-year-old reliever Joaquin Benoit.
The team announced the move Wednesday, along with placing pitcher Joe Ross on the 60-day disabled list as he recovers from Tommy John surgery in July.
The Nationals didn't release terms of the agreement, though a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Monday that it was for $1 million.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal wasn't official at the time.
