Percy Harvin did not attend Wednesday’s voluntary practice with the Vikings, but Leslie Frazier said he didn’t think it was related to the shoulder.
’s return to practice lasted one day.
Because of shoulder surgery on April 24, Harvin spent the opening week of the
’ organized team activities off to the side running sprints, competing with
running up a hill and catching passes from quarterbacks without going into pass patterns.
That all changed Tuesday, as the receiver with the most experience with the Vikings returned to the practice field. On Wednesday, however, when the practice was open to the media, Harvin was nowhere to be seen.
“He did a good job yesterday with his shoulder and we really thought things were going well for him and he wasn’t here today, but he’s done a good job in the time he’s been here. This was his first miss. Hopefully we’ll have him back tomorrow,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said.
Frazier didn’t think Harvin’s absence was related to his shoulder.
“Nothing that I’m aware of regarding the shoulder. It’s a voluntary camp, so hopefully we’ll have him back tomorrow,” Frazier said.
Last week, Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said he wanted to give Harvin a big hug for showing up for voluntary workouts just to rehabilitate his shoulder.

Harvin wasn’t the only player missing Wednesday. Linebacker

"He’s dealing with some major issues in his family," Frazier said. "But Chad is a loyal guy, he wants to be here. But he’s dealing with a serious matter."
