Harvin misses practice with illness

Minneapolis Star Tribune - [Full Article]

Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin was absent from practice Thursday because of an illness.

Coach Brad Childress did not give any specifics on Harvin's situation, saying, "I'm not an epidemiologist," when asked if the Vikings feared the rookie might have symptoms of the H1N1 virus. Given the concerns about keeping those who are sick away from others, it would not come as a surprise that the team would send Harvin home.

His availability for Sunday's game against San Francisco will become more clear today when the Vikings issue their final injury report of the week and list players as probable, questionable, doubtful and out.
