Percy Harvin Collapses On Practice Field; Taken Away In Ambulance

Minnesota Vikings' wide receiver Percy Harvin, after jogging out onto the practice field this morning, vomited and eventually collapsed.  He was taken away to by an ambulance, according to Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

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.

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.

It sounds like this might be connected to the migraine headache problem he's been suffering with for years now.  Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that that's ALL it is.

We'll keep you updated as rapidly as we are able.
