Percy Harvin Misses Practices with Migraines Again


This is turning into Groundhog Day. Percy Harvin’s fine, Percy has migraines. Percy’s “bright eyed” as Chilly would say, Percy needs to see a specialist at Mayo.

At any rate, I’ve lost count on the number of practices Percy has missed over the past two years with migraine headaches. They’ve only cost him to miss one game in his career and the sleep machine he apparently uses now appears to have mitigated the problem to a certain extent. We’ll know more later in the week on his status versus the Bears. His ankle is also not 100%, but Percy has also proven to be one of the leagues toughest players and can produce on the gridiron while in pain.

It almost has me wondering. Does Percy really have a headache today due to problems dating back to his Florida Gator Days? Is his feud with Brad Childress to blame for this most recent episode? Or is Percy simply pulling a Ferris Bueller to get a day away from a locker room that apparently can’t stand their ringleader.
