"There are no guys on the injury report that should not be able to go next week, including Percy," Frazier said last Monday. "We're optimistic, but we'll still have to wait and see. He's getting better, but we'll know more, probably, a week from today what it looks like as far as him practicing that following Wednesday."
Frazier acknowledged last week's optimism and transferred that forward to Wednesday's practice.
"No setback. (Harvin) just hasn't made enough progress to put him out there yet," Frazier said. "We'll see how he does on Wednesday. I was hoping that he would have been ready to go and get a little work today, but that wasn't the case."
The Nov. 11 game was the first time he missed a game for anything other than migraines.
"Most of the swelling is gone. It's just sore and pretty tender right now," Frazier said.
With two weeks off – out with the injured ankle eight days ago and a bye this past weekend – Harvin fell to eighth in the NFL with 62 receptions. Indianapolis' Reggie Wayne now leads the league with 76 catches for 1,003 yards.
Also missing from Vikings practice was receiver Michael Jenkins, who suffered a foot injury in the Detroit game.
"When he went home, his foot was bothering him," Frazier said. "We did an MRI today, found out there was nothing structurally wrong, but he's pretty sore and tender so we gave him this morning off."
