Vikings WR Percy Harvin returned to practice Friday but is not expected to play Sunday vs. the Bears.
Harvin missed the last two days of practice because of migraines. Head coach Brad Childress said Harvin is doubtful for Sunday, although he is officially listed as questionable.
The Vikings have yet to activate WR Sidney Rice from the physically-unable-to-perform list. He has not played this season after undergoing hip surgery. Rice was cleared for full activity but Childress said he is questionable.
WR Bernard Berrian was also on the team's injury report as questionable.
The way we see it
Harvin had a lot of success when Randy Moss was on the team and Rice's presence could have a similar impact. The Vikes are looking at neither of them taking the field on Sunday against the Bears in a crucial game if they want to stay in the playoff hunt and if Childress wants to save his job. If Berrian can play, he will be Brett Favre's top target and slot receiver Greg Camarillo could see increased targets.
Check Harvin, Berrian and Rice's status on Sunday morning, but have other wide receivers ready to go just in case. Harvin has been a solid fantasy player this season but you may want to get your backups ready. Berrian would be a good start if Harvin and Rice can't go.
