Good news came for the Vikings on Wednesday when WR Percy Harvin returned to practice, less than a week after being taken away in an ambulance when he collapsed on the sideline because of a severe migraine.

The reigning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year missed two weeks of training camp following the death of his grandmother and a bout with migraines. Harvin has suffered from migraine headaches since he was 10.

Last Thursday, Harvin vomited and collapsed at the Vikings' practice facility while standing on the sideline. He spent the night in the hospital and didn't travel with the team to San Francisco for its second preseason game.

Harvin's chronic migraines have added to the WR depth issues the Vikings have experienced this preseason. They lost starting WR Sidney Rice for the first half of the season as he recovers from the hip surgery he had earlier this week. They signed veteran WR Javon Walker on Tuesday and traded for ex-Dolphins WR Greg Camarillo on Wednesday.
