Biggs: Harvin added to injury report with illness
MINNEAPOLIS—Maybe there is something going through the Minnesota Vikings facility in Eden Prairie, Minn.
A day after running back Adrian Peterson was held out of practice with an illness and listed as questionable on the injury report, rookie wide receiver Percy Harvin was added to the report as probable with, what else, an illness.
Harvin is second on the team with 36 receptions for 501 yards (13.9 average) and he’s scored four touchdowns. He is also a dynamic kick returner with a 29.8-yard average and two touchdowns.
Harvin has a history of being sick. He missed practice in September when he was ill. He fell sick on the way from Atlanta to Minnesota for the team’s rookie minicamp and wound up being hospitalized due to dehydration and a virus. Harvin was sent home from the NFL’s rookie symposium ill. As Judd Zulgad reported for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.startribune.com/sports/63001112.html">Harvin has a history of severe migraines. It could be that he’s got a bad headache and not a flu bug.
