Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin will miss a third consecutive game as he was ruled him out for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers, the team announced.

Harvin has missed the last two games with a sprained left ankle and will not travel to Green Bay with the team.

"The ability to push off and change direction seems to be giving him a little bit of trouble," Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said this week.

Frazier said Harvin had no real setbacks but he hasn't made the improvement that the team had hoped for. Harvin has played in nine games this season, catching 62 passes for 677 yards and three touchdowns. https://twitter.com/VikingsFootball/status/274951299882160129
