EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings have ruled wide receiver Percy Harvin out of their game at Green Bay on Sunday because of a sprained left ankle.

Harvin was listed Friday as doubtful to play the Packers. The team announced Saturday that Harvin wouldn't travel with the team to Lambeau Field. This will be Harvin's third game missed after the injury occurred at Seattle on Nov. 4. Harvin missed only three total games over his first three seasons with the Vikings.

He was leading the league in total yards, including receiving, rushing and kick returning, before he was hurt. The Vikings are 1-1 without him.
