Vikings Quotes - Leslie Frazier - November 23

Posted Nov 23, 2012

Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier

Good afternoon guys. I think we had a good spirited practice. Guys seem to be really energized and looking forward to this ball game on Sunday for a lot of reasons. Percy (Harvin) gave it a try in pre-practice and really couldn’t put a lot of weight on that ankle at this point. He’s going to be listed as doubtful for this ball game. Charlie Johnson was able to get out and do some work. He should be fine going into the game. Letroy (Guion) was good and so was Michael Jenkins and everybody else should be good. Percy is the only guy that’s in question.

Q: Did you get anybody any extra work on Charlie’s side just in case he cannot go?

A: Yeah, we did. We gave Mark Asper a little bit more work to get him some opportunities so we’d be prepared, if for some reason, he had trouble.

Q: Would Geoff Schwartz be an option?

A: We’d probably leave him on the right and Joe (Berger) would end up being the guy who would have to play guard and Mark would be a backup if something were to happen.

Q: How did he hurt that toe?

A: Something at home, bumped it on something and it’s just really, really sore.

Q: Would Jarius Wright get most of the kickoff returns if Percy cannot go?

A: We don’t have him as a backup on kickoff returns, we do as a punt returner but if he got any work as a returner, it would be as a punt returner.

Q: Has there been any move to get Jarius Wright to be more of an outside receiver?

A: Yeah, we practiced him there this week along with the slot so we’re preparing him to get some work outside as well as inside.

Q: Either way, if Percy is active or not, will Jarius Wright be active?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you feel like Jarius has earned a game day roster spot for what he showed against Detroit?

A: Yeah, he showed that he’s ready to get in some game action. We’re going to have him up for sure.
