Vikings Small Injuries Added Up On Sunday

The Minnesota Vikings suffered a number of minor injuries Sunday in their 23-20 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, but none that will keep any player out for a significant period of time.

Wide receiver Percy Harvin dealt with cramping issues throughout Sunday's contest, leaving the game twice, however, returning both times. Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com writes that Harvin is not overly concerned about the issue.

"I got tackled kind of funny on my calf muscle, so it just kept flaring up," Harvin said. "So, drinking fluids, pickle juice, all that. I was able to finish the game. I'm fine."

Linebacker Erin Henderson had to leave the game temporarily with an apparent elbow injury. He did return to the game. Fullback Jerome Felton suffered a leg injury in the second quarter. He too returned to the game.

Safety Mistral Raymond missed much of the fourth quarter due to hydration problems. Dehydration has been a recurring issue for Raymond as cramps forced him to miss two games last season.

Defensive end Brian Robison also suffered an apparent arm injury in the fourth quarter.
