Make it three games missed in a row for Percy Harvin.
The Minnesota Vikings downgraded their top receiver from doubtful to out on Saturday, leaving Harvin at home while they travel for Sunday's game at Green Bay.
Harvin hasn't played since Nov. 4, when he sprained his left ankle at Seattle. He finished that game but was on crutches the next day and still is having trouble pushing off.
Despite his chronic migraine issues and other health concerns, Harvin had missed only three games total in three-plus NFL seasons before this injury, which comes at an inopportune time for him and the team.
The Vikings (6-5) remain tied for the last NFC wild-card spot as they prepare to continue a crucial stretch in NFC North Division play on Sunday against the Packers.
Harvin had amassed 773 combined rushing and receiving yards and five touchdowns -- three receiving, one rushing and one on a kick return -- through nine games. He expects a new contract after the season to replace the last year of his rookie deal.
