It appears Percy Harvin’s latest episode with migraines, his first in front of his Vikings teammates, started when Harvin looked towards the sky for a punt.
Harvin retreated to the locker room, then returned to the sidelines to try to watch the rest of practice, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Harvin was seen vomiting and doubled over. Teammates came over to him, but practiced continued for another six minutes.
“That one hit and it hit hard. Always scary for all of our guys when you see teammates struggling,” coach Brad Childress said.
Initially, Harvin wasn’t responsive and trembling. Then he was described as responsive, but disoriented. An ambulance arrived and practice stopped, while players watched. As the ambulance sat there, with Harvin inside, the Vikings resumed practice for ten minutes.
“Brett [Favre] made a mention. Let’s get one period in here. Let’s do something as opposed to go in,” Childress relayed, saying he was initially just going to end the practice.
(Umm . . . what? Who is running practice?)
After the abbreviated practice, the Vikings then broke for conditioning. We wish Harvin a speedy recovery.
