The Vikings won 21-14 at home against the Chicago Bears Sunday. Minnesota went out to a 14-0 lead and led 14-7 at halftime. The Vikings got a 56-yard interception return touchdown from Harrison Smith in the 2nd half that helped secure the win.

Viking receiver Percy Harvin is out for the season after being placed on injured reserve with a severely sprained ankle. It was reported earlier this week that Harvin has a torn ligament in his left ankle. Harvin hurt the ankle when the Vikings lost at Seattle on November 4.
The Vikings are likely to play another game without receiver Percy Harvin. Harvin missed practice Friday with a sprained left ankle and is listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's game at Green Bay against the Packers.
Viking receiver Percy Harvin missed practice Thursday after being limited in practice on Wednesday. This appears to be a setback in his return from a left ankle sprain. Harvin has missed the last 2 games with a sprained left ankle.
Viking head coach Leslie Frazier met the media Monday giving an update on injuries. Both tight end Kyle Rudolph and safety Harrison Smith suffered concussions Sunday will need to pass post concussion tests to be cleared to play Sunday at Green Bay.
