Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin will miss Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Harvin missed practice Wednesday through Friday due to a sprained left ankle.
If Harvin is sidelined, rookie fourth-round draft pick Jarius Wright. Wright, a slot receiver like Harvin, could be activated for a game for the first time.
Minnesota ranks 30th out of 32 NFL teams in passing this season, but what little success the Vikings have had through the air has largely been due to Harvin. He's the runaway team receiving leader with 62 catches for 677 yards and three touchdowns in eight games.
Tight end Kyle Rudolph is second on the Vikings with 27 receptions, and wide receiver Michael Jenkins and running back Adrian Peterson have 26 catches apiece.
