Biggs: Vikings hope Harvin gets better soon

The Minnesota Vikings are hoping that Percy Harvin makes a turn for the better today after he was added to the injury report with a migraine headache on Thursday.

The offensive rookie of the year has been plagued with migraines at different points during the season, and it’s an issue he’s dealt with since he was 10 years old. He was forced to miss one game earlier this season, and was held out of practice for nearly two weeks. The team is expected to depart for New Orleans and the NFC Championship Game on Saturday.

The Vikings and Harvin sought a solution when he took a trip to the Mayo Clinic last month. He had been fine since the visit until the problem cropped up again.

"I think it's just a matter of trying to slow the onset," Minnesota coach Brad Childress said. "For a while he had them pretty often. This is the first time one has raised up (since his Mayo visit). Expect him to be OK. He has a headache so he has to take care of it. (It's) not something you can fight through."
