Harvin inactive for Vikings against Lions
Harvin was listed as doubtful for the game Friday and coach Leslie Frazier said he would have had to make significant improvement on Saturday to be considered for the game. He did not practice this week and now will have two weeks to recover with the Vikings on a bye next weekend.
The Vikings are also missing defensive tackle Letroy Guion. He is out with a turf toe injury.
