It will be the third straight game he has missed.
Harvin was limited in Wednesday's practice and had a pronounced limp at the end of his routes. The Vikings gave him Thursday off in an attempt to rest the left ankle, hoping he would be able to do more on Friday.
Frazier said Thursday it would be more difficult to play Harvin Sunday in Green Bay if he didn't practice Friday. That became a certainty with his Saturday downgrade.
"No real setbacks, just hasn't made the improvement that we hoped," Frazier said.
