Migraines may have returned for Percy Harvin

B. Childress1.jpgPercy Harvin has missed the last 15 Vikings practices following the passing of his grandmother, but another recurring issue could be again giving him problems.

Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune says “it’s believed” Harvin is struggling again with migraine headaches.  Vikings coach Brad Childress isn’t sure what’s going on.

“I’m kind of flying in the dark a little bit,” Childress said.  “I’ve talked to people up there but I’ll
let you know when I know something.”

As Zulgad points out, Childress once was roundly criticized for fining wide receiver Troy Williamson a game check after he missed practice after his grandmother’s death.  Childress wound up changing his mind and won’t make that mistake again.

“The thing that I’ve learned is that everybody grieves differently,”
Childress said. “That’s just the fact of it. You’ve got to be
able to respect that and appreciate that.”

The Vikings did get a bit of good news Monday when Adrian Peterson returned to full practice after being limited for most of camp.

  1. Is nobody other than me catching onto the fact that Percy Harvin hates practice more than Allen Iverson?

    Why does Chilly never know what’s going on? Isn’t he the head coach?
    ——————–
    Bret favre is the head coach.

    When Brett Favre goes away,so will Harvin’s migranes.
    —————————————
    MINE TOO!

  4. There is no “coach” in the NFL that knows less about what’s going on on his own team then Chilly. Every time this guy gets asked something about Favre or anyone else, his reply is some variant of “I don’t know”.

  5. Take it from me as a fellow migraine sufferer they’ll never just go away forever. I usually get about 8 a year.

  6. Pussy Harvin: “Naw Coach, it aint’ even like dat…I wanna be dere fer da team and all, but my head….it really hurts dog….when did you say that first check get’s deposited again….like I was sayin’, my head hurts real bad”

    I don’t understand whet he just said. I need someone that knows jive to translate!


  8. Practice and training camp are unimportant to the vikings. Preparation for the season is unimportant. Everyone gets excusaed absences from Mr. Noodle.
    As to Harvin, look at his record:
    Rookie Year
    1) 02/22/2009 – Arrives at the NFL combine on drugs with full knowledge and prior warning he would be tested for drug abuse. Tests positive for marijuanna. Placed in NFL’s substance abuse program. The NFL is now spending extra resources monitoring the player.
    2) 5/1/2009 – missed rookie practice do to severe dehydration, cause unknown, called in sick.
    3) 06/29/2009 – Arrives at the NFL required rookie symposium and then tells medical personnel he is too ill to participate and is sent home.
    4) 06/30/09 – Harvin ordered to attend the 2010 rookie symposium. Like the kid that flunked first grade Percy has to attend next year.
    5) 07/31/09 – Harvin fails to report to Training Camp on time.
    6) 08/04/09 – Harvin’s contract with the Vikings is disapproved by the NFL for rules violations.
    7) 08/14/09 – Harvin is “hurt” (shoulder) and misses his first game, the preseason opener.
    8) 09/24/09 – Harvin misses practices again with a mystery illness that the vikings refuse to discuss.
    9) 10/14/09 – Harvin misses practice again. Speculation by reporter Judd Zugland is a shoulder injury but no one really knows for sure and the vikings have said nothing officially.
    10) 10/29/09 – Harvin misses practice due to “illness”
    11) 11/25/09 – Harvin misses practice again with unexplained illness.
    12) 12/7/09 to 12/12/09 Harvin misses a whole week of practice and stays away from team facilities for unexplained nonfootball reasons.
    13) 12/14/09 – Harvin inactivated and misses a game. He is not missed and Brad Childress doesn’t care.
    14) 01/24/10 – Harvin loses fumble in playoff game.
    Season Two
    1) 07/31/10 – Harvin attends one practice and then is absent from training camp. After one week goes by, coach Brad Childress claims not to know anything about it.
    Anyone believe there will not be other items added to this list?

  9. Chilly and the vikes know whats going on, he just doesn’t go public with anything…
    See ya in NO

  10. Preseason gives everyone:
    Cramps, Migraines, Groins, Tweaks, pops, boo boos, and some their p*ssies hurt

  11. Oh, c’mon guys, Chilly talked to guys “up there.” I assume he’s talking about God, but I can’t be sure.

  12. Bob Nelson is the official biggest Vikings fan, anti-fan in the world, no question. No one goes out of their way to research negative Viking stats and facts more than this guy. He probably knows more about the Vikings than the Packers or whatever other crappy team he claims to root for.
    Come out of the closet Bob, we’re all waiting for it!

  13. Let’s see what Favre says…maybe Harvin needs a lift in Chilly’s Suburban, or a ride on the team pontoon, or his own whizzinator.
    While we speak, Brett just threw another interception…

  14. If you had to practice with the glare off Childress’ head shining in your eyes, you would have migraines too!

  15. Dear Bob Nelson,
    Cusoman is right on the money with this one.
    There is no way a Packer fan can be so window lick’n retarded over Green Bay football to research so many worthless facts.
    Just say you want a little bit o’ wat Percy be providin!!!
    Does it just suck to know that your team is incapable of drafting offensive talent?
    Please insert three paragraphs of random Packer rookie stats to completly blow me out of the water.
    C’mon you drunken Sconies, pound that mouse button, clickity click click click that keyboard.
    See ya tommorow, I gotta work in the morning.

  16. I’m pretty sure Percy got permission from BrINT for missing training camp so Childress doesn’t have to worry about it. I just wish Favre would tell Col Klink about it so Klink doesn’t have to keep answering that he doesn’t know when we all know what he does know for sure and that’s where he keeps his KY Jelly for the ride to the airport to pick up his personal savior and playoff INT thrower, Master BrINT Favre.
    It seems to everyone that the Vikings are having a less than stellar camp thus far and with the first loss , er I mean game, of the season with the Saints on the horizon, you would think they might try to get their act together.

  17. You idiot reporters, did you ask Percy at all during the offseason about his migraines? I didn’t think so.. You only bring it up now, so you can make a big deal of it and hopefully turn up a sh1t storm.

  18. Hey Booby Nelson—
    I never knew you cared so much about Vikings, man, that’s even hard for us Vikings fans to document, though wrong, Percy’s absences.
    Oh, you forgot several important points:
    1. His non-football illnesses were well-documented MIGRAINES.
    2.HE was last year’s ROOKIE OF THE YEAR!!
    3. He scored several Tds against your beloved packers.
    C’mon Booby, let it go…..now go dig up something else that is 80% inaccurate on our beloved Vikes!!! I have faith in you!!!!
    Oh, did I mention HARVIN single-handidly made the packers “secondary” look like pop warner players at Gbay last season? oh, yes, you FORGOT THAT TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “Anyone believe there will not be other items added to this list?”

    Yeah, you forgot…
    “NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year.”
    The kid has migraine episodes so severe he has to be hospitalized, yet he still has the courage to play Professional football and get blindsided going over the middle (see the catch against Detroit at the Silverdome last season) knowing the hit could trigger another episode.
    Mr. Bob Nelson, whoever you are, you just made an embarrassing fool out of yourself. There is no Packer running back, kick returner or receiver as talented as Percy Harvin, and you made that perfectly clear to everyone. You also made it pretty clear you’d crawl across broken glass and drink Percy Harvin’s bath water to have him play one game for the Packers.
    But fear not, you’ll get to see him in person at Lambeau once a year, every year, for the next ten years… enjoy.

  20. Now now, Percy only went for 7-123-1 in the two games against the Pack last year.
    But of course, all that matters is the final score…. Anybody have that again?

  21. But fear not, you’ll get to see him in person at Lambeau once a year, every year, for the next ten years… enjoy.
    ––————————————————————
    I’m not sure they will let a Los Angeles team play in the NFC North….
    probably only see him a couple more times….just sayin’ cupcake! 😉

    Fear not Jimmy Hat, when the Vikings show up at Lambeau for game one with the Packers, they’ll pick right up where they left off. Unfortunately that’s bad news for Aaron Rodgers and whoever is playing Left Offensive Tackle for the “Green weenies”.

  23. I think during the off season he smoked pot kept his migraines away, but now that the season is about to start, he is off the pot and the migraines are coming back.

  24. after reading bob nelson’s 9:57 comment, it’s official: bob nelson suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder and is probably psychotic.
    he actually makes jimmysmith sound well adjusted.

  25. HAhahahaha….Bob Nelson….”Let me see, should I get out the grinder and sand mama’s toe nails again or research Percy Harvin for PFT? “

    First off, let’s not refer to men in the NFL as “kids”… no matter how young they are, none are teenagers, and none are even close to being “kids”. Secondly, it doesn’t take “courage to play professional football”, it takes talent and a little bit of toughness. Harvin has proven that as he has loads of talent and just a little bit of toughness. Courage is doing something that you know could get you killed and not doing it for a king’s ransom.

  27. Childress stole Harvin from BB…hee hee hee
    “I’m a little in the dark here.” Childress I say that’s about right ChillyDip! You’ll go down as the “mushroom Coach!”
    Ziggy? When are you going to fire this idiot?

  28. Favre’s ankle hurts, Harvin’s head hurts, but I’m sure they’ll both make a miraculous recovery when the season starts. They’re both full of crap.

  29. His migraines are probably the result of all the whining from the pussy bitches called Viking fans

    Does it just suck to know that your team is incapable of drafting offensive talent?
    Wow, you really are a homer aren’t you? Last time I checked Green Bays offense was pretty damn good with drafted guys (Finley, Nelson, Driver, Jennings, Jones to name a few). While I’m not a Vikings fan, I can see the talent in Harvin and Rice and Peterson etc.. You’re too blinded by hatred that you come off as an idiot. I’m not going to drop any statistics on you as I’m sure most of the people posting will agree that your comment is idiotic.

    Yes, the Green Bay Offense is pretty damn good. And yes, the Viking Offense is pretty damn good. The Packer Offensive line struggled at times last year. And yes, the Viking Offensive line struggled at times last year.
    Let’s all agree to that.
    Bob Nelson’s “Packer-Stat” filled post had nothing to do with Harvin’s NFL stats and was designed provoke an angry reaction.
    Let’s all agree to that.

    Thank you for sparing us the mountains of Packer stats, they give Viking fans Migraines.

  33. Yalls so negative….I mean really….Cant you all at least agree that, we as in NFC North, have one of the stronger divisions in the League. Lions, previously laughable, now will be competative. From the media’s prospective, the packers are going to be the team to beat this year. Alot to live up to with a team that gave up 90 points in the play offs last year, and protected their QB like a 1 inch rubber on a 9inch cock…..I mean really??? Is there any reason to argue about who is better????
    Harving can have Migraines, Favre can rest his old bones….Sid, can fake his hip injury until his new contract is signed, Peterson can fumble his way into a new contract too….@ the end of the day, just before sept. 09, 2010……THe vikings ship will land in New Orleans, and all the drunken idiots and heathens will witness the Birth of the Soon to Be New & Real SuperBowl champion, MINNESOTA VIKINGS…..They will not let NO cheat, and late hit their way into a NFC CHAMPION……..It was given to the state of LA last year, but now that they have been coddled for their strife, they will be taught a lesson. Greg williams will be the first to witness the wrath of the Purple People Eaters…It is now time to move forward
