Harvin not on practice field again, Childress concerned

From StarTribune.com:

Percy Harvin was not on the practice field Wednesday for the portion that is open to the media and it's clear there are growing concerns about the wide receiver's continuing issues with migraine headaches.

Brad Childress said this morning that Harvin is at Winter Park and was on the field for a walk-through, but the Vikings coach did not hide the fact that the team is exhausting all avenues in trying to find out exactly what is wrong and why the standout rookie continues to suffer from debilitating headaches.

In his most extensive comments about Harvin's situation to date, Childress said the rookie saw another doctor on Monday and indicated that he went through a variety of tests to make sure the problem doesn't go beyond migraines. Harvin has suffered from the problem since he was 10 years old and has missed several practices this season because of the issue. But last week, marked the first time he had missed an entire week of practice and a game in the NFL. He missed two games as a sophomore at the University of Florida. However, the episodes seem to becoming more and more frequent of late.
