Percy Harvin plays through ankle & hamstring injuries

1500 ESPN - [Full Article]

It was a rough day all around for Vikings WR Percy Harvin, who entered the game with a tender right hamstring that sent him to the sideline on several occasions.

In the third quarter, Harvin went to the ground in pain after a defender rolled up on his left ankle and received help from the team's medical staff as he left the field. He returned in the fourth quarter after getting the ankle taped, but he wasn't himself.

Harvin admitted the ankle gave out when Ponder's pass sailed past his head on third-and-5, and the same appeared to happen on a "go" ball late that Brandon Browner intercepted.

Asked if he pushed the ankle further than he should have to prove a point, Harvin said, "It wasn't to prove anything. I think you guys know, if I'm able to get out there and go, I'm going to try to go. Maybe I did (push too hard). Maybe I didn't. We'll see Monday."

Fantasy Impact: 

No other Vikings WR saw more than two targets, but if Harvin has to miss time, Jerome Simpson figures to be the biggest beneficiary, but the passing game is a mess right now.
