Percy Harvin still isn't back on the practice field, leaving him a long shot to play in Sunday's division showdown at Chicago.
The Minnesota Vikings listed Harvin on the injury report as a nonparticipant in Thursday's practice because of the sore left ankle he sprained on Nov. 4 at Seattle.
An NFL source said the Vikings are holding out hope Harvin can practice on Friday. If he can't, he won't play against the Bears.
Harvin, who stayed in the Twin Cities to receive treatment during last week's bye, said on Wednesday it took longer than expected to get swelling out of the ankle but he "definitely" planned to test his progress in practice.
He wasn't on the field when the Vikings took the field on Wednesday afternoon, though, and apparently wasn't cleared to participate on Thursday either.
Practice was closed to reporters because of the Thanksgiving holiday.
There were no changes from Wednesday's injury report for the Vikings.
The only change on Chicago's injury report was receiver Brandon Marshall (shoulder) returning to practice on a limited basis. Quarterback Jay Cutler (concussion) was listed as limited for a second straight day.
