Percy Harvin not expected to play; Brett Favre does light throwing
Percy Harvin is expected to miss another game because of his migraine headaches.
Harvin was listed as doubtful after missing another full practice. He hasn’t really been at the Vikings facility all week. Brett Favre made his first appearance at practice of the week, although he was limited.
“The fact that he felt comfortable at least releasing the football,” was important, coach Leslie Frazier said via Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “We just wanted him to do some soft tossing and just get a feel for the motion.”
Favre didn’t throw any deep passes and he’ll be a gametime decision. This is the least amount of practice work he’s done all year, and yet we still don’t believe there’s any chance he’s sitting out Sunday.
Meanwhile left guard Steve Hutchinson (broken right thumb), left end Ray Edwards (high right ankle sprain), and wideout Joe Webb are all questionable. Hutchinson and Edwards didn’t practice this week. Cornerback Chris Cook and safety Tyrell Johnson are out.
