MINNEAPOLIS -- A few Sunday morning NFC North notes:
Minnesota Vikings receiver Percy Harvin (hip) is active and will start against the Miami Dolphins. Cornerbacks Cedric Griffin (knee) and Chris Cook (knee) are inactive, also not a surprise. For the second consecutive week, the Vikings will have only three healthy cornerbacks on their game-day roster. Rookie tailback Toby Gerhart (knee) is active and will make his NFL debut.
During ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown,” Adam Schefter reported the Vikings appear to be the leading candidate to acquire San Diego Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson if he is traded. Another team could always emerge before a Wednesday deadline that will extend Jackson’s NFL suspension to a total of six weeks.
