While most of his teammates have been ready to wear back their Minnesota Vikings jerseys for the team’s voluntary offseason workout program on Monday, wide receiver Percy Harvin is struggling with lingering migraine headaches and is putting off his returning time.
Despite the annoying headache, Harvin still managed to have a breakout rookie season and missed only one game. He sat out practices a bit often but the team still offered enough support to the rookie since drafting him from last year’s first round as they already knew about the headache issue when they made the choice. Harvin did not fail them and had a productive season with 790 receiver yards and 6 touchdowns. He is also having a productive offseason somewhat by gaining some weight.
Although Harvin has visited a number of doctors, it still seems unlikely that he would have any chance to get rid of the migraine headaches. Following certain treatment plan could help reduce some pain, but Harvin said he is ready to have to bear it for a long time and try to contain it as much as he can. He did not give the exact time when he could return to join his teammates for the team’s offseason program, but he has been working out on his own, so it could be taken for sure that he will wear back his Vikings jersey in time for the new season.
