The Vikings continue to play it safe with Adrian Peterson, ruling the running back out for Sunday’s game against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. Peterson, who suffered a high ankle sprain two weeks ago against Oakland, did some light work in practice early this week and indicated he would be a game-time decision. But Leslie Frazier opted not to wait until game time to make that decision.
In other health-related news, Percy Harvin missed practice on Friday with an undisclosed illness. Any time the word “illness” appears in conjunction with Percy Harvin we always assume migraine. But this time we’ve being assured it’s not a migraine and Percy will in fact be ready to play on Sunday. After sort of a nondescript run of games, Percy broke out last week vs. Atlanta with 95 yards and a TD on 8 catches. Watching him and Christian Ponder develop their chemistry could be the only fun thing left to look forward to for the remainder of the 2011 season.
