Coach Leslie Frazier said Harvin won't practice Wednesday. He severely sprained his left ankle on Nov. 4 at Seattle and has missed three games since. The Vikings play the Chicago Bears on Sunday, but Frazier sounded pessimistic about Harvin's return.
The coach said it's "hard to say" when asked if Harvin's season could be over.
As to whether any issues beyond the injury are behind Harvin's absence, Frazier answered vaguely. He said he knows Harvin "wants to win" and is sure he will "do everything he can" to help the Vikings.
Harvin missed a total of three games over his first three seasons.
UPDATE: The Vikings announced Wednesday that Harvin has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.
