This came across late Saturday night when most of you were too drunk to read. Adam Schefter reported that Percy Harvin has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against Detroit. The Vikings will give no official word until inactives are reported.

So don’t look for Percy to make a last second miracle recovery. The Vikes are taking the super-cautious approach. They are shutting Percy down. And I think this is the right decision. There is zero reason to risk Percy’s future health by playing him today. A lot of people are thinking, “If only the Vikes had been so careful with Adrian Peterson last year.” I guess the Vikes learned their lesson.

What will the Vikings’ offense look like without Percy Harvin? What does a small town in Kansas look like after a tornado goes through? What does Nicolas Cage look like after a two week bender? What does Mickey Rourke’s face look like after another trip to the plastic surgeon? It’s going to get ugly today, I would assume. Unless Jerome Simpson and Jarius Wright are better than I think. Not crossing my fingers.

Adrian Peterson? You gotta be good today. 350 yards sounds about right.
