Harvin was on the field on Wednesday but didn't do much in his first appearance in pads since collapsing during practice one week ago.
He showed up about halfway through Thursday's session in street clothes, and though coach Brad Childress said he hopes Harvin can play on Saturday, it seems unlikely the second-year receiver would be available to do much after all the time he's missed.
"He really didn't practice (Wednesday)," Childress said. "He stood there with his pads and helmet on, just to kind of (get used to) his pads and caught a couple footballs. ... That's really the extent of what he did aside from stretching.
"He's got another test he's got to accomplish here before he's cleared to play."
Asked if the tests Harvin has been undergoing are specific to his ongoing migraine problems, Childress said, "They're not specific to that. Kind of all-encompassing."
Kennedy hasn't practiced since apparently being injured Sunday night at San Francisco, and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier on Wednesday confirmed Kennedy was injured and might not play against the Seahawks.
"It's a concern for this game," Childress said of Kennedy's health, "but I don't think long-term it should be."
End Jared Allen, who didn't practice on Wednesday, was back on the field Thursday.
The Vikings were practicing downtown instead of at their Eden Prairie headquarters to try out the new artificial turf on Mall of America Field.
