Vikings WR Harvin sidelined vs. Packers, 3rd straight absence because of sprained ankle

Minnesota wide receiver Percy Harvin is inactive for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers, the third straight he's missed with a sprained left ankle.

The Vikings ruled Harvin out Saturday. It's a blow for the Vikings, a game behind the Packers in the NFC North and battling for a wild-card spot. Harvin led the league in total yards, including receiving, rushing and kick returning, before he was hurt.

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews also missed his third straight game, with a hamstring injury, and veteran receiver Donald Driver is out (thumb).

Minnesota's other inactives are: QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson; CB Brandon Burton; LB Audie Cole; G Mark Asper; TE Allen Reisner; and DE D'Aundre Reed. Green Bay will be without DB Charles Woodson; RB Johnny White; CB Sam Shields; LB Terrell Manning and DE C.J. Wilson.
