Percy Harvin was somewhat cryptic when he said that he took a medical test on Friday and doctors believe they have made a breakthrough in diagnosing the root of his migraine issues.

This information came after the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver played in 14 snaps Saturday night, catching two passes and taking one big hit in the middle of the field. It looks like he’s back, for the time being, with no more problems with the latest migraine that led him to collapse on the sideline at practice less than two weeks ago.

“(Doctors) found some things we thought was the main cause,” Harvin said, according to Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Harvin had missed the first two preseason games and all but six practices in training camp. The Vikings have desperate need at the position with Sidney Rice sidelined for the first half of the season following hip surgery.

“We have a plan,” Harvin said of the medical approach. “We're all feeling confident. I know we've said that a couple of times now. But I think this time we found what the main cause was. I'm not saying I won't ever get a headache again, but hopefully we can slow it down a little bit.”

That would be good news for the Vikings, who looked like it will be a while before they are in sync in their meeting with the Seattle Seahawks.
