Childress confirms migraines have Harvin missing camp
Originally excused from training camp because of a death in the family, Percy Harvin remains away from Mankato, Minn., now as the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver is battling migraines.
This is the 11th day Harvin has been missing from training camp and coach Brad Childress confirmed on Tuesday that the wide receivers who was the offensive rookie of the year in 2009 is again dealing with migraines, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Following the death of his grandmother, stress could have triggered his latest health bout.
“God willing he is going to work through this,” Childress said. “I'm not sure (when Harvin will return). If I knew, I would tell you.”
The Vikings will split Mankato on Thursday in advance of the team’s preseason opener Saturday in St. Louis. So, Harvin likely will not rejoin the team until next week in Eden Prairie, at the earliest. No one can know for sure at this point.
Harvin missed practices on multiple occasions last season and was held out of one game. He made a trip to the Mayo Clinic during the season. He said this offseason that he continues to experience migraines. Childress said the team is still working with him to try to manage the problems as best as possible.
