EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings have placed ailing wide receiver Percy Harvin on injured reserve.

The move was announced Wednesday afternoon, after Harvin missed another practice because of severely sprained left ankle that has kept him out of the last three games.

After an outstanding first half, Harvin's season deteriorated quickly. He was hurt at Seattle on Nov. 4. Now this, meaning he won't play the rest of the year.
