Percy Harvin’s short stint in the NFL has been filled with highs and lows. The highs came on the field with Harvin being named the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2009. The lows have come off the field as he has continuously battled migraines during his rookie season. The same migraines that have caused him to miss most of Vikings’ training camp this season.
Today, Harvin was back on the field at camp, but according to The Star Tribune, Harvin collapsed and was rushed to the hospital.
Harvin, who has suffered from severe migraines, was not on the field for the start of practice. He was seen talking to head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman outside the locker room at Winter Park and then jogged onto the field to watch practice. A few minutes later, Harvin vomited and then fell to the ground.
He came out for special teams practice and started having problems when he looked into sky catching punt.
Practice continued as the team’s medical staff tended to him. After about 10 minutes, a police car and ambulance from the Hennepin County Medical Center arrived and EMTs tended to Harvin as practice stopped and players watched.
Migraines are scary stuff. Especially for someone who makes a living by getting hit.
