Minnesota Vikings Injury Report: Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin Could Both Be Out

The Minnesota Vikings released their final injury report of the week and, well, it doesn't look all that promising for the team facing Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos this weekend. The Vikings will definitely be without Adrian Peterson, due to a high ankle sprain, and could also be missing wide receiver Percy Harvin.

Harvin practiced all week, but an illness caused him to miss Friday's practice while earning him a "questionable" designation on the injury report for Sunday's game. If he's unable to play, head coach Leslie Frazier won't be happy.

"Oh, man," Frazier said, shaking his head, while talking to 1500 ESPN's Tom Pelissero. "Please, please, please. Let's not go down that now. We need number 12 out there."

Considering the Vikings lost fellow starting wide receiver Michael Jenkins to the injured reserve earlier in the week, Frazier's probably right on with that quote.

Aside from Peterson, the only other player ruled out for the Vikings is cornerback Chris Cook as he deals with the legal system. Cornerback Asher Allen, linebacker E.J. Henderson and tight end Kyle Rudolph join Harvin as players with the questionable heading into Sunday's game.
