Percy Harvin collapsed at the Vikings' practice facility on Thursday and was taken away in an ambulance. According to The (Minneapolis) Star Tribune, Harvin vomited and collapsed to the ground while watching practice.

Head coach Brad Childress said Harvin was briefly unresponsive but did not have a seizure. The second-year player was stabilized and taken to a local hospital.

Childress then released a statement later in the day: "Percy appreciates everyone’s concern. He is alert and resting comfortably, but will remain in the hospital overnight."

Harvin has dealt with severe migraines since he was 10 years old, and they kept him out of several practices and one game last season. Despite that, he managed to earn PFW/PFWA Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.

He missed two weeks of training camp this offseason while dealing with the death of his grandmother and migraine headaches and had just returned to practice this week.
