One week without Percy Harvin sort of sucked. Two weeks without Harvin would blow big-time.
Unfortunately, two weeks without Harvin looks like exactly what we’re going to get.
According to Access Vikings, Harvin missed Thursday morning’s walkthrough, and will probably not be on the practice field for the afternoon session. This means Harvin’s migraines have now forced him to miss everything since the Arizona game two Sundays ago.
I don’t need to tell you that Harvin’s prospects for suiting up on Sunday are looking mighty dim.
Darrell Bevell is trying to keep things positive nonetheless. “I think it just gives other guys opportunities to step up,” the OC said. “That’s why you have guys that are behind him. Greg Lewis was able to make a couple catches in the game [Sunday]. Do we have to make adjustments? Obviously we have to just insert the next guy in there.”
With all due respect to Darrell Bevell, Greg Lewis is not even close to being Percy Harvin.
The one good thing about this whole situation is that we’re only playing Carolina, who will be starting Matt Moore at quarterback. We didn’t need Percy to beat the Bengals and we don’t need him to knock off the Panthers.
The big worry is that these migraine issues will crop up at a more inconvenient time. Like ten minutes before a playoff game. That would both suck and blow.
