Percy Harvin Returns To Action
The Minnesota Vikings came from behind to defeat the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 24-13 in the team’s third preseason game. Overall, the Vikings looked good at times and sloppy at others, but the story of the night was wide receiver Percy Harvin’s return to action. Harvin, who has missed much of training camp and all of practice last week due to migraines, played about 12 snaps, hauling in 2 Brett Favre passes for 30 yards.
After the game, Harvin told reporters that doctors believe they have pinpointed the source of his migraines.
“We did find something,” Harvin said. “It’s not life-threatening, but it’s something that we need to work on, and we will.”
Harvin failed to mention any specifics regarding the diagnosis, but he did attribute his collapse on the practice field on August 19 to an adverse “reaction to medication.” After meeting with doctors, Harvin believes his debilitating headaches are treatable.
“It was tough, but that’s part of life,” Harvin said. “We’ve got a great plan coming up here, so I think everything should be behind me.”
For the sake of Harvin’s long-term health, let’s hope he’s right.
