Percy Harvin ailing, fortunately it's not a migraine

Percy Harvin was held out of practice Thursday with an illness, but the good news is he’s not suffering from a migraine.

Coach Leslie Frazier said it’s likely a stomach virus, according to Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

We've gone through the migraine part (before)," Frazier said. "There's a distinct difference with what's happening with your stomach and what's happening with migraines."

The hope is that Harvin will return to practice today. Migraines have kept him out of three games in his career, including two last season. The hope is they finally have that issue under control.

“He was in the meetings and just wasn't feeling good," Frazier said. "So, we just said, hey, there's no sense sending him out there (to practice)."

Harvin’s use has been a topic around the team as he played in only 30 of 65 snaps in last Sunday’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Still, he caught a team-high seven passes for 76 yards.
