Vikings vs. Bears: Percy Harvin is out

Matthew Stockman

Dynamic Minnesota wide receiver did not travel with the team to Chicago.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin stayed home for the weekend and will not play against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, according to reports.

The Bears catch a break for their key NFC North matchup with the Vikings as Harvin's injured ankle continues to keep him off of the field. Harvin injured the ankle in Minnesota's Nov. 4 loss in Seattle. After sitting out the next week, a Minnesota win at home over Detroit, the Vikings hoped to have Harvin back after a bye week.

Instead, Harvin will continue rehabbing his ankle at home. Before getting injured, the Minnesota playmaker was on pace for his best season with 62 catches for 567 yards and three touchdowns along with 16 kickoff returns for 574 yards and one touchdown.

Chicago expects to have quarterback Jay Cutler back on the field to play Minnesota. The Bears are just one game ahead of the Vikings in the NFC North while sharing the division lead with Green Bay at 7-3.
