The Minnesota Vikings escaped Week 10 without any significant injuries, and a pre-existing injury to wide receiver Percy Harvin will get some time to heal up during the upcoming bye week.
The Minnesota Vikings escaped from Sunday's 34-24 win over the Detroit Lions relatively unscathed. While the Lions got some significant injuries to starters like defensive lineman Cliff Avril and starting cornerback Chris Houston, the Vikings didn't have any players go down with an injury that one would describe as "significant."
More than that, the Vikings have a week to rest up any injuries they do have, as their bye falls in Week 11. One such injury that could use a little more time to heal is the ankle injury that wide receiver Percy Harvin is working through.
Harvin injured his ankle in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks, but returned to the game and played on it. He was then ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions, but the injury isn't expected to keep him out for much longer. Still, it's a very key injury given that he is Christian Ponder's top target this year.
