                        === Vikings' Harvin inactive ===
 
 Minneapolis,  MN (Sports  Network)  - Minnesota  Vikings  wide receiver  Percy
 Harvin was inactive for Sunday's game against NFC North rival Detroit.
 
 Harvin  sprained  his left ankle  in three places  during the third quarter of
 last  week's 30-20 loss at Seattle. Though he did not come out of the contest,
 the  playmaking wideout was on crutches Monday and did not practice the entire
 week.
 
 An MRI exam taken Monday confirmed a significant sprain, though Harvin did not
 sustain any fractures. He was listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report.
 
 The  24-year-old will miss a game for the first time since Week 14 of the 2010
 season.
 
 The  versatile Harvin is  in the midst of a terrific 2012 campaign. He entered
 this  week atop  the NFL with 62  receptions totaling 677 yards and also leads
 the league with a 35.9-yard average on kickoff returns.
 
 Minnesota  does  have a  bye in  Week 11 following  Sunday's showdown with the
 Lions.
 
 Michael  Jenkins will  start  in place  of Harvin.  In  addition, rookie  wide
 receiver Jarius Wright is active for the first time in his career.
 
 Defensive  tackle Letroy Guion,  who was also listed as doubtful due to a turf
 toe injury, is inactive. Fred Evans will start in his place.
