After being away from the Vikings for multiple weeks due to migraines after his grandmother's death, wide receiver Percy Harvin gave everyone a scare at practice Thursday. The second-year pro vomited and collapsed on the sideline before leaving in an amublance.
The Star Tribune offers details:
Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin collapsed at the team’s Winter Park facility Thursday while watching practice and was loaded into an ambulance.
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.
Practice continued as the team’s medical staff tended to him. After about 10 minutes, a police car and ambulance from the Hennepin County Medical Center arrived and EMTs tended to Harvin as practice stopped and players watched.
According to CBS's Rapid Reports, Brad Childress said Harvin looked into the sun while catching punts before practice, which triggered a migraine. Harvin has said in the past that his migraines sometimes cause vomiting. We'll keep you posted on his status.
