Percy Harvin confident he's ready for Thursday night
Percy Harvin has declared himself ready for action.
The Minnesota Vikings wide receiver missed nearly all of training camp and preseason as he battled ongoing issues with migraine headaches, but according to Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star Tribune he ran every play with the first team in the practice held Sunday.
“I’m ready to play ball,” he said.
Like we’ve said all along, the Vikings are almost in a day-to-day situation with Harvin because of the complete and total unpredictable nature of his medical issue. Harvin says he’s confident in a new plan for treatment that they have developed after more meetings with specialists but at least he’s honest about the issue. There is no miracle cure.
“The people I talked to had them for 40-plus years. My mom had them for 35 years and is just now growing out of them. It’s just something you got to hope to maintain,” he told Scoggins. “Playing contact football may not be the best thing. I think we have a great plan.”
For what it’s worth, Harvin was not listed on the injury report for Thursday’s season opener. Hopefully for Harvin and the Vikings, things remain that way.
