Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin missed Monday’s practice with a sprained left ankle. He suffered the injury Week Nine against the Seahawks. He missed the Lions game in Week 10 and Minnesota had a bye last week. Head coach Leslie Frazier says he is hopeful Harvin will play this weekend when the Vikings take on the Bears on Sunday. Vikings Live at Winter Park, Wednesday night at 6pm on 860 AM KNUJ and SAM 107.3.
The 49ers used a devastating defense to hold down the Bears in a 32-7 San Fran win in California. Aldon Smith had five-and-a-half sacks for a Niners defense that forced two turnovers and allowed just 151 yards. San Francisco’s backup quarterback Collin Kaepernic [[ KAP-er-nick ]] was brilliant in his first-career start, throwing for 243 yards with two touchdowns.
