Peterson, Harvin not at practice

Posted by: Mark Craig under NFC, Leslie Frazier, Adrian Peterson, E.J. Henderson, Jared Allen, Leslie Frazier, Percy Harvin Updated: December 2, 2011 - 11:44 AM

Just got back from the portion of practice that's open to the media and for at least a few moments, we got to ponder the possibility of Devin Aromashodu and his nine receptions as the team's No. 1 receiver.

Percy Harvin wasn't at practice. Neither was Adrian Peterson. Or, as one observer put it, "No Peterson, no Percy, no chance."

We'll learn more from coach Leslie Frazier after practice about Harvin's unexpected absence and whether Peterson has done anything to suggest he might play on Sunday with that high left ankle sprain.

Also witnessed was: the return to practice for MLB E.J. Henderson (shoulder) and DE Jared Allen, who missed yesterday's practice because of a family matter.
