Injury Reports; Harvin Practices

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 23, 2010 – 2:53 pm

The Vikings and Lions have issued their Thursday injury reports and there is little change for either team. Let’s go over the details…

WR Percy Harvin (hip) was a limited participant after missing practice on Wednesday. The “illness” designation that presumably indicates a migraine issue for Harvin was removed from Thursday’s injury report, so that is good news for the Vikings. The not-so-good news for the Vikings is that “right elbow” has been added to the injury report next to QB Brett Favre’s name. Favre was a limited participant in today’s practice but my sense is there’s isn’t serious concern at this point regarding the elbow.

Outside of the changes to Harvin and Favre, the Thursday injury report is the same as Wednesday’s for the Vikings.

There were also 2 changes to the Lions injury report on Thursday. S Louis Delmas (groin/biceps/calf) went from not practicing on Wednesday to being limited in practice on Thursday. LB Ashlee Palmer (ankle) was also limited on Thursday.

    great, now with Favre’s throwing arm hurt maybe we can finally focus the game on the only member who’s been consistantly good for our offense this year. I say let Favre sit this game out, Jackson can hand the ball off as good as the best of them.

    Percy Harvin needs to play in order for the Vikings to gain some consistency on offense.

    If our oline plays well we will win a lot of games if they don’t give favre time to throw then we will sink rock bottom. Favre is known to bring the talent out of receivers. Also the receivers that we have are not good at getting open they get jammed up and are not speed burners, and are not tall so favre has to zip it in the right spot and cannot throw it too high like how he did with sidney. The way to fix this problem is work with the strength of our wideouts know what route they are effective with. Berrian and harvin are better suited for yards after catch. Berrian will once in a while get a bomb thrown but that is because rice was double teamed and berrian got wide open. If you are just going to toss it up with coverage on berrian he won’t win that match because berrian is more of a mid range wideout. The vikings might have to throw more mid range and hope one of those guys get good yard after catch. I don’t know how baskett is or what type of wideout he is but I doubt he is a speed burner he has the size to catch but not really familiar with how sure handed he is. I’d say the best target for favre is shank and harvin. Peterson so far so good no fumbles and his catching what is thrown to him. Haven’t seen much of albert young I guess he can’t hold up the backup role it might be taken away by gerhart.

    What Percy needs is a new form of Omega 3 from Canada. This Omega 3 also contacts 5000 iu of vitamin D and 5000 iu of vitamin A. Very powerful formula for athletes.

    I have tried calling the Vikings on a number of occasions, to no avail It maybe that Percy Harvins Migraine headaches may be caused by the chemical Gluten which is found in bread. In the Oregonian newspaper approximatly 4 weeks ago the medical column explored the Idea of Gluten being the cause of other peoples Migraine headaches. When these people got rid of Gluten in their diets their Migraines wentr away. I truly think for Percy’s sake He should explore this avenue of thinking. Talk with a specialest who knows about The addative Gluten.

    Go Vikes

    Also one other Comment, Just maybe you should use Joe Webb as a Wide out against the Lions this weekend he might be a quick fix you need as far as recievers go.

    Sometimes we have to hit rock-bottom before things get better. I still believe in the Vikings. I’ve been reading alot of the comments on these blogs. It’s still not to late to turn things around. The team is loaded with Super Bowl potential. This is the week I believe when the team will come together. The leaders need to step up and bring everyone else along. The Vikings can’t just rely on one man alone. It’s a Team effort. Get it “together” and take whats yours this year.

    WTF: your dillusional, replace Favre with Tjoke!! That is the definition of insanity. Tjoke will never start in the NFL. Iam pretty sure our recievers want Favre, not Tjoke.. Let me Quote AP “were 4 or 5 plays away from being
    2-0.” Why bench Favre? Why trade Sage? How about pass protection? How about Percy dropping a ball right in his hands, which caused a interception.
    How about all the penalities? How about all the missed tackles? How about bad play calling? FAVRE IS NOT THE ROOT CAUSE OF ALL THE VIKINGS PROBLEMS. Sick and tired of all you Favre haters,
    Whats better losing early or losing late in the season?

    A win going into the by week, right on track..Beat the superbowl champions at their dome, pretty tough, holding the superbowl champions at their dome to 14 points, very impressive.

    After Percy is done with this concoction…DUNK that coward Barrian in a vat of it so if a ball comes near his back,a#$ or any other body part …he might catch it!

    If the receivers don’t start helping Farve out coming back for the ball and quick cuts it is going to be a long season without rice the long pass needs to be the exception not the rule the long pass (if forced) will just lead to more and more interceptions, also Peterson has been getting about 4.5 yards per carry but very few carry in the 4th quarter
