Harvin’s big day came a day after his latest migraine

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.

    “Vikings receiver Percy Harvin hasn’t suffered many migraines since the Brett Favre/Brad Childress drama ended in Minnesota…”

    Literally EVERY fan of NFL football can say the same, I’m sure…

    I used to be a headache for other teams, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

    What’s remarkable to me is that you every time there is some tragedy where someone dies, everyone goes on and on about God bless this and “in mi prayerz”.

    Like they care about someone else’s troubles.

    But then you have a guy like Percy Harvin, whose brain is messed up and everyone knows it, and after football he’s in for a lifetime of hurt, but what do we get?

    A bunch of headache jokes.

    Percy Harvin has no business playing football.

    In recent scouting history, Harvin and Peterson are the only 2 players pro prospects said were NFL ready in high school. kudos to childress for drafting these guys. they are freaks of talent.

    people said Harvin would be a bust. MANY analysts actually said he was over rated and not very talented.

    shows you how dumb ALL espn and nfl analysts are.

    Why isn’t Harvin suspect to doctors approval like concussion injuries. Having your head feel like its coming off, regardless from a migrain or concussion should be treated the same.
    Apparently he gets to call his shots when he thinks he can or cannot play. Sounds unfair.

    Harvins headaches are from stress. The more responsibility he gets to run and catch the ball the more the migraines kick in. He is being asked to do a lot with Pederson out and it shows.
    Let him sit on the bench and drink gatoraid and the migraines will disappear.
