Harvin says he'll be back 'stronger and better'


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings are moving on without their best wide receiver, Percy Harvin.

He was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, ending his season. Harvin said Thursday that he's disappointed he couldn't finish the year but his sprained left ankle hasn't allowed him "to progress to the point where I can help our team." He said he looks forward to "coming back stronger and better than ever."

Harvin was hurt on Nov. 4 at Seattle. The Vikings host Chicago this Sunday.

Harvin hasn't spoken to reporters in two weeks. Teammates said Thursday they wished Harvin would've been able to return but stressed the importance of focusing on the players they have available.
