Vikings | Contingency plans if Percy Harvin can't return kicks

The Minnesota Vikings are making plans in case WR Percy Harvin (migraines) is unable to perform punt and kickoff return duties, reports 1500ESPN.com's Tom Pelissero. "It's going to have to be a week-to-week decision," special teams coordinator Brian Murphy said. "Obviously, his situation isn't one that you can predict. That's the reason why we're trying to rep as many people as we can - to have alternatives." RB Darius Reynaud is the clear favorite for a role returning punts and could also factor in on kickoffs. RB Albert Young could also be used on kickoffs. CBs Asher Allen and Marcus Sherels have also been tried on punt returns, but Allen hasn't performed well and Sherels is a long shot to make the team.
