Percy Harvin Returns To Vikings Practice

On Wednesday, Vikings WR Percy Harvin missed practice with a migraine. The news was concerning because Harvin had previously missed time in training camp with migraines and has struggled with them since he came into the NFL.

Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN reports Harvin returned to practice on Thursday.

He was working in individual and group drills.

This means that he'll likely play on Sunday...unless migraines pop up again.

Vikings WR Percy Harvin Misses Practice With Another Migraine

Vikings WR Percy Harvin has had migraines cause problems for him since he entered the NFL. Last year it caused him to miss one game and during training camp this year he missed several weeks with what was partially attributed to migraines.

It sounds like the migraines are back as Brad Childress told reporters Harvin missed practice due to another migraine.

It's not the only injury he's working with -- he also has a hip strain that made his status for Sunday questionable.

Percy Harvin's Collapse Not Directly Related To Migraines, Vikings Trainer Says

In a scary moment at the Vikings facilities last week, WR Percy Harvin collapsed during training camp practice. Trainers tended to him and he was eventually taken in an ambulance to the hospital.

After the incident, Vikings coach Brad Childress talked about migraines being one of the problems, something Harvin's struggled with for years. According to Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman, the collapse wasn't directly related to migraines.

Sugarman, who along with team doctors tended to Harvin and also called 911, is confident the Vikings know why Harvin collapsed and how to prevent it from happening again. Issues that led to Harvin being unresponsive might have included an adverse reaction to medication, dehydration and blood pressure that went too low.

Harvin was reported to have looked up into the sun during special teams drills at which point some sort of migraine kicked in. Apparently that wasn't the entire problem.

Harvin is expected to practice this week and was working out at the Vikings facilities over the weekend. Meanwhile, he'll continue to undergo tests

Brad Childress Confirms Percy Harvin Collapsed Due To Migraines

Vikings coach Brad Childress confirmed that Percy Harvin collapsed on the field Thursday afternoon due to migraines.

Apparently it started when Harvin looked into the sky during special teams drill. Somehow, that triggered the episode, Childress says.

"I don't know how to classify [the episode]," Childress said. "Not reallly a seizure but he had some trouble over here. I'd be remiss if I tried to qualify it one way or the other. He seemed like he was stable. Shugs [head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman], Dr. [Sheldon] Burns and Dr. [Chris] Larson were all with him right there and Shugs and Dr. Burns rode to the hospital with him. ... As we say those things [migraines] can be debilitating and obviously that one hit and hit hard. It's always scary for all of our guys when you see a teammate struggling with whatever. We said a quick prayer for him."

Childress said Harvin was "trembling" and in and out of consciousness.

After the ambulance left, Brett Favre suggested the team do one more practice period before they went inside. After they did that, practice was called early.

Percy Harvin Collapsed At Vikings Training Camp, Taken Away In Ambulance

There was a scary moment at Vikings training camp on Thursday. WR Percy Harvin collapsed on the field and was taken away in an ambulance, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Harvin, who has suffered from severe migraines, was not on the field for the start of practice. He was seen talking to head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman outside the locker room at Winter Park and then jogged onto the field to watch practice. A few minutes later, Harvin vomited and then fell to the ground.

After he collapsed, a police car and an ambulance came onto the field and eventually took him away. The Vikings stopped practice and huddled together for a team prayer.

The cause is believed to be migraines, although there's no official word at this point. Harvin has suffered from migraines while with the Vikings even missing a game last year. One of the effects of a severe migraine is vomiting.

Harvin missed several weeks of Vikings training camp for the death of his grandmother and then later because of migraines. He just returned to the team facility this week.

Percy Harvin Reportedly Returns To Vikings Training Camp, Could Practice Monday

Vikings Get Roster Exemption For Percy Harvin Absence

On the last day of July Vikings WR Percy Harvin left the team to be with his family after the death of his grandmother. He hasn't returned since then but reports have indicated that migraines are once again part of the issue.

Harvin himself hasn't confirmed or denied reports that migraines have kept him out of training camp but the Vikings recently placed him on the "reserve/left squad" list, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

That means that the Vikings will get a roster exemption and they can add another player until Harvins returns.

It would suggest that the Vikings don't expect Harvin to return anytime soon.

Harvin had migraine issues last season and it even cost him one game but he was never away from the team this long because of migraines.

Percy Harvin Still Absent From Vikings Training Camp, Migraines 'Believed' To Be Part Of Problem

WR Percy Harvin left Vikings camp on July 31 due to the death of his grandmother. It's been nearly two weeks and 15 practices later and he's yet to return.

"I'm kind of flying in the dark a little bit," Vikings head coach Brad Childress said. "I've talked to people up there, but I'll let you know when I know something."

In 2007, Childress came under criticism because he fined WR Troy Williamson a game check for missing a week's worth of work while dealing with the death of his grandmother. He later changed his mind and didn't fine him but clearly Childress understands he doesn't want a repeat of that incident.

"The thing that I've learned is that everybody grieves differently," Childress said Monday. "That's just the fact of it. You've got to be able to respect that and appreciate that."

It's also believed, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, that Harvin is once again dealing with migraine headaches. They were a problem at times last year causing him to miss practice at times.

Migraines can be caused by stress -- like the death of a family member -- so the Star Tribune's belief that its migraines makes sense on the surface.

The Star Tribune reports that Harvis is in Eden Prairie, MN at the moment.

Harvin's been at Vikings camp for three practices but not since July 31.
