That sound you heard earlier today was Viking Nation issuing a collective gasp at the news that Percy Harvin was absent from practice. Nervous fans can now breathe a little easier knowing Percy was not kept out because of a migraine. In his post-practice talk Leslie Frazier revealed that Harvin’s absence was due to an illness characterized as “general stomach issues.” That’s the same stuff that used to keep me out of class on test days after I forgot to study.
So it doesn’t sound too serious for Percy. I expect he’ll soon be returning to practice and will be ready to go for his 45% of offensive snaps this Sunday.
