Vikings receiver Percy Harvin hasn’t suffered many migraines since the Brett Favre/Brad Childress drama ended in Minnesota.  But Harvin’s most recent stellar performance came a day after his latest experience with the condition.

Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Harvin, who missed practice last Friday with an illness, didn’t participate in a Saturday walk-through practice due to “migraine-like symptoms.”  (The Steelers approve of that diagnosis.)

Coach Leslie Frazier has said that he was led to believe that Friday’s illness was unrelated to migraines.  After Sunday’s game, Harvin declined to elaborate on the illness.

Regardless, he overcame the condition to have eight catches for a career-high 156 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-32 loss to the Broncos.
