A severe migraine sent the NFL's reigning offensive rookie of the year to the hospital during a Thursday afternoon practice. Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin(notes), who has suffered from the headaches since he was 10 years old, vomited and collapsed on the sideline while watching a team workout. He had left the field earlier when he began feeling migraine symptoms while looking into the sky for a punt return.
The wide receiver was trembling on the ground while EMT's attended to him. He was later taken away in an ambulance and hospitalized. It's the second time this season the former University of Florida star has gone to the hospital as a result of the migraines. Earlier this month, he missed two weeks of practice while dealing with the headaches following the death of his grandmother.
Following practice, Vikings coach Brad Childress talked about Harvin's status:
According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the team ran 10 plays while Harvin was in the ambulance and then ended practice early.
