WR Percy Harvin returned to Vikings practice Monday for the first time since July 31. Minneapolis Star Tribune writer and PFW correspondent Judd Zulgad first reported Harvin's return.

Two days into training camp, Harvin experienced a death in the family, and his migraine headaches that have plagued him his entire life added to his personal loss to keep him from camp.

Harvin won the PFW/PFWA Offensive Rookie of the Year award in 2009. He had 60 catches for 790 yards and six touchdowns while adding two kick-return touchdowns, but migraine headaches kept him out of practices and games.

The Vikings need a healthy Harvin to help RB Adrian Peterson and their offense. Brett Favre has yet to make a decision about playing in 2010 and WR Sidney Rice is out with a hip injury.
