Vikings' Harvin, Saints' Shockey to play
Harvin missed three practices with migraine headaches this week, a problem that has plagued him all season. But the Offensive Rookie of the Year is ready for Minnesota's first conference title game in nine seasons.
New Orleans tight end Shockey missed practices this week with a sore right knee, but is going to play. So is wideout Robert Meachem, who has been dealing with a sprained right ankle.
Saints CB Malcolm Jenkins is out with a hamstring problem.
Meanwhile, Brett Favre said that he believes that crowd noise in New Orleans will be a huge factor. He will wear all of the Vikings plays on a wristband for the first time this season.
