Harvin to practice today

And, in the latest installment of the Percy Harvin saga, it appears the talented wide receiver will be on the field for practice today.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier, on the radio with Paul Allen on KFAN (1130 AM) this morning, said Harvin was on site and set to practice today. 

By now you know each chapter of the Harvin story this week. On Tuesday he said he was unhappy, though he wouldn't say what he was unhappy about. On Wednesday came new that Harvin had requested a trade. By midday Vikings GM Rick Spielman said the Vikings were not interested in trading Harvin.

And then Harvin did not practice Wednesday afternoon. Later Wednesday evening Harvin tweeted that his contract wasn't the issue, that he had talked with Frazier.

And now this. 

We'll see if Harvin actually practices today or if he just walks onto the field and observes.

I'll get back to you after practice has ended.
