Vikings Will “Take It Slow” With Harvin, Expect Him To Play Sunday

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 13, 2011 – 2:40 pm

It sounds as if Vikings WR Percy Harvin was held from practice on Thursday. He’s dealing with sore ribs and was a limited participant on Wednesday.

Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier told reporters after practice on Thursday that Harvin was re-evaluated and that he “should be fine for the game” on Sunday night.

Frazier also noted that CB Antoine Winfield still has stiffness in his neck. His status for Sunday is a bit more uncertain, but more will be known after Friday’s practice.

    With the Metrodome lease expiring after the 2011 season, Bagley said the Vikings refuse to extend the lease absent a plan for a new venue. And if the lease expires absent a plan for a new venue, all sorts of things could happen.

    Most significantly, Bagley said that “more than one community” has contacted the team about a possible move. Though Bagley declined to identify the communities involved, he believes that the efforts will become public if/when the lease expires.

    We should pick up Brandon Llyod at Wide Out :) He is up for trade

    Would be a great pick up. Any idea what they want for him?

    I’ve read rumors of a 3rd round pick for Lloyd. That wouldn’t be so bad, but he’s a shade to the older side and in a contract year. Chances are that he’s going to demand a larger contract than the Vikings will be able to offer while staying under the salary cap. So we’d get to use him for 10-games and then watch a 3rd-round trade passed over for a short solution to the WR woes once more. I’d rather we kept the draft pick and try to find some young talent when our selection comes up.

    8 offensive linemen picked in the last 9 years, and not one of them is any good!

    What were you people thinking???

    Rather get Marvin McNutt (Iowa) or B.J. Cunningham (Michigan State) in the 3rd round. Maybe a 5th and a 7th for Lloyd because he is around 30 and in last year of contract.

    I agree with above staement and that is the concern facing denver with them not able to negotiate a deal, most likely because llyod wants more and as a pro bowler and led the lleague last year I think… I guess he deserves more then the 1 mill a year he is getting now.

    However, from what I read they are open for offers for anything around 3rd or 4th rd. 4th rd might not be so bad. Plus, hate to say but the way things are going our 4th rd might be looking like it be at the top as well which could be worth it for denver. Also, we can at least have someone here to catch a ball and might sign with again if things go ok.

    Could dump Brick-Hands Berrian and give Lloyd his remainder of cash in BHB’s contract. Besides I doubt Lloyd would bash a stadium supporter like BHB did.

    Also, just throwing this out there. I am a big time Chris Carter fan. He played well past 30. Lloyd has good hands and speed much like Carter did, not saying Llyod is as good as carter was but we could seriously use a guy like him. Harvin is good but lets face his injuries will always have him as a risk. Jenkins is ok but he is No number 1 wideout. BB is useless and can’t catch. We should consider this and trade for him or bench berrrian and bring in Arceneaux… Least from what I can see he could have been another RICE.

    I know our current receivers wouldn’t be confused with the Rice’s, Carter’s or Calvin Johnson’s of the world, but is the biggest problem them,,,,,, or the guy who is throwing to them ! ?

    Lloyd would best be called a poor mans Carter. Maybe package a 4th or a 5th with BHB for Lloyd. Then sit McNugget. Play Ponder. Who knows if the season ends with some promise maybe Lloyd would resign for less.

    As for Brandon Loyd, the Vikings could sign every reciever out there and be no better. Unless of course, there is a fifteen foot tall ball catcher out there or one that is less than 15″ tall. Then and only then would McNabb’s overthrows and underthrows would have a chance at being caught.
