Vikings WR Percy Harvin hasn't been at Winter Park since being placed on injured reserve on Dec. 5.
When asked about Harvin's absence, HC Leslie Frazier said this: "It's purely up to him. If he wanted to be around, he could be around. But the guys are working hard doing everything they can. I know he wants our team to do well and that's important. But we got some other guys who are on IR as well, so it doesn't concern us."
At this point, Frazier hasn't been told that Harvin will have to have surgery on the ankle.
Harvin's relationship with the team is strained due to the status of his contract, which runs through the 2013 season. Expect this issue to bubble up again this summer if not earlier.
