Harvin expected to be a go

NEW ORLEANS -- Wide receiver Percy Harvin is expected to play today for the Vikings in today's NFC title game against the Saints. Harvin made the trip to New Orleans on Saturday after missing practice Thursday and Friday because of migraines. 

ESPN reported that Harvin, defensive end Ray Edwards (knee), defensive tackle Kevin Williams (knee) and nose tackle Pat Williams (elbow/foot) all should be available despite being listed as questionable. Edwards was moving gingerly Friday so it will be interesting to see how he does and how much he plays. 

As for Harvin, the way this has played out is not a surprise. He missed one game this season because of migraines but dealt with them a few times and the usual drill was to list him as questionable on the Friday injury report. 

Here's an interesting nugget from ESPN's Ed Werder. Brett Favre will wear all the plays on his wrist for the first time because of the crowd noise.
