Harvin, Rice active for Vikings against Panthers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Vikings receiver Percy Harvin is back in Minnesota's lineup against Carolina after missing a game with migraine headaches.

Harvin was on the active roster Sunday after returning to practice late last week. He was also to return kicks despite a report that he's set to visit the Mayo Clinic on Tuesday.

Harvin told NBC on Saturday that an MRI exam last week showed he has two bulging disks in his neck. A team spokesman on Sunday said he couldn't confirm the report.

Defensive end Ray Edwards (back) and receiver Sidney Rice (illness) were also active for Minnesota despite being listed as questionable.

Panthers cornerback Richard Marshall dressed despite an ankle injury. Receiver Dwayne Jarrett was a healthy scratch amid a disappointing season.
