Vikings can only go day-to-day with Percy Harvin
It would be a shame, but the reality is the Minnesota Vikings might not be able to count on Percy Harvin on a week-to-week basis this season.
It’s going to be a day-to-day proposition for the time being.
That is because the wide receiver’s health is that uncertain entering his second year in the league when he’s badly needed by quarterback Brett Favre with Sidney Rice on the shelf for at least the first half of the season.
Harvin did light work during practice on Wednesday in Eden Prairie, Minn. It was his first work since he collapsed on the side of the field last week and was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance while suffering from a migraine. Today, Harvin is not present at practice, reports our good friend Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
It’s not critical that Harvin be on the field today, but he missed nearly all of training camp and he does need to get work in before the season begins. Conditioning will be an issue with him. It’s certainly clear why the team is pulling out all the stops in seeking help, trading for Greg Camarillo in Miami and signing Javon Walker off the street in a major reclamation effort.
