Percy Harvin could be available for Bears game

Percy Harvin has missed the Minnesota Vikings last three games due to injury, but the wide receiver could return against the Chicago Bears.

The Minnesota Vikings haven't been able to muster much of a passing game since wide receiver Percy Harvin suffered a severely sprained ankle in early November, but there is hope that the former league-leader in receptions could return for this weekend's game against the Chicago Bears.

The Vikings are still considering him questionable, according to a report in the Star Tribune, but that news is at least a bit better him definitively being out for another week.

"I really don't have much new news regarding Percy," Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said Monday. "He did a little bit with our trainer today; we'll learn a little bit more as the week goes on. Hopefully, we can get him back, but there's no certainty there."

Harvin has missed the team's last three games, bringing much scrutiny upon quarterback Christian Ponder and the remainder of a bad Vikings' pass offense.

Frazier believes two other players that play a big part for the Vikings -- John Sullivan and Jared Allen -- are both likely to play this weekend despite battling injuries of their own.
