No guarantees for Jarius Wright

Jarius Wright's NFL debut featured the Vikings' longest passing play of the season and a touchdown. Good enough to play every week, right? Wrong. Head coach Leslie Frazier says he'll consider playing Wright going forward, but there are no guarantees.

Vikings rookie receiver Jarius Wright provided a spark to the offense in his NFL debut Sunday, but that doesn't mean he's a lock to play in two weeks against Chicago. Head coach Leslie Frazier said Wright "did some things to warrant considering him" to play every week, but it's not a guarantee.

With Percy Harvin expected to return from his sprained ankle in two weeks, the question is: Can Harvin and Wright play at the same time?

"There's definitely room for me and Percy on the field at the same time," Wright told the Pioneer Press. "And I'm sure in the future you might get a chance to see some of that. Me and Percy bring similar styles of game to the field."
