Per Rotoworld:
"Percy Harvin (hamstring) was added to the Vikings' injury report as a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
It's a new injury, and beat writer Tom Pelissero says the Vikings "backed off him" during practice. Since the hamstring didn't knock Harvin out of practice altogether, we suspect he's still on track to play against the Redskins. Check back Friday afternoon to ensure that Harvin is well enough to start and play at least 50 percent of the snaps."

Hoping it's more of a precaution to a slight pain than a problem.
Wanted to thank the Tank for all the great insight in the past years.

Rotoworld:
Percy Harvin - WR - Vikings
Coach Leslie Frazier expressed no concern that Percy Harvin would miss Sunday's game after a tight hamstring limited him in Thursday's practice.
"It was a little sore, so we just decided to back off as practice went on," coach Leslie Frazier explained. The Vikings can't afford to lose their top offensive weapon, who has been a legit MVP candidate through five games. Check back Friday to make sure Harvin's hamstring doesn't get any tighter.

Harvin has been the lone bright spot on my team. If he is actually hurt I will freak.

He's been my best player.

If he can't go, I'll have to start Cobb and Avery. Or two TEs.

I am willing to bet Harvin is reminding the vikes he needs a new contract.

Looks like he'll be just fine:

Harvin back on the field for Friday practice

Percy Harvin (hamstring) is back on the field for Friday's practice.
We never like to see the hamstring tag attached to a player, but this is confirmation that Harvin is dealing with minor tightness as opposed to a more serious pull. Check back later in the afternoon for an update, but Harvin appears to be fine to pencil into fantasy lineups.

Just to be safe, they should lean on AP and Rudolph more this week.

Harvin's been seeing an insane amount of usage thus far this season.

But keep in mind ADP tweaked his ankle too.

This dude is a monster when he plays. But I don't care if they say it's minor hamstring tightness or not, tightness in the hamstring, groing, etc. to a player that primarily uses his speed can be a serious issue. It may only be tightness now but, at least in my experience, soreness only remains just that and nothing more if and only if you get a couple weeks rest. He can absolutely play and play effectively through soreness but the longer you play with soreness to a ligament like the hamstring or groin it's only a matter of time until it's tweaked and becomes a full blown pull.
