Percy Harvin Collapses During Practice

Aug 19, 2010


As if the Vikings didn’t have enough media attention because of Favre’s return, they are again front and center in media outlets. This time because of an unfortunate incident.


Percy Harvin vomited and collapsed during practice today, apparently brought on by another migraine. He was taken to a local hospital via ambulance.


Harvin has missed virtually all of training camp because of the death of his grandmother and a series of migraines. Unfortunately doctors have been unable to find a solution for Percy’s migraines.


This latest attack, depending on how long Harvin remains out could put the start of his season in jeopardy. If you have your fantasy draft before his availability is determined, you will be taking a risk. While he will likely begin sliding down draft boards, his potential and explosiveness will still keep him a fairly early pick.


This goes beyond football, both fantasy and reality, as this is a man’s life. It’s hard to imagine being held hostage by your own body. I hope the doctors can find some way to help Percy get past these severe headaches. Nobody should have to endure that much pain.

    Hopefully he recovers. He’s a great kid and a very talented football player.

    Scary stuff. He’s been dealing with these for over two weeks now. I can’t imagine what he’s going through.

    Actually, it was his grandmother who died not his mom. I thought he went to the Mayo Clinic this off season to check these out. From what I read, there was some pressure or nerve somewhere on his neck.

    I also forgot that this isnt a new problem. This goes back to as far back as high school. He had some issues with them at Florida but not to this level.

    John – I knew it was his grandmother. Not sure how I typed mother. Thanks for correction. Yeah, he’s been dealing with them for a while, but they seem to be getting worse.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
