Former Gator All-American Percy Harvin missed a couple of weeks of practice with the Minnesota Vikings due to severe migraine headaches. Urban Meyer said Tuesday that dealing with the headaches was a regular occurrence while Harvin was on the Florida campus.
If you recall, Harvin missed the South Carolina and Florida Atlantic games in 2007 with severe migraines.
"My first experience with migraines was with Morgan Scalley, my All-American safety at Utah," Meyer said. "I’d look over and he’d put a towel over his head and I’m what is that? I really didn’t understand what they were but it’s serious business. Percy came here and he had it [migraines] his entire career here. He was in the hospital several times. I was just praying for him because that’s a serious deal."

Poor Percy, he's been a credit to the University of Florida, he's battled through so much
Hope he's able to get through it. He can be such a dynamic player when he's on the field. I'd hate to see his playing career be cut short due to migrains.
Hope Percy has a healthy 2010. With Favre back, Minnesota will be extremely exciting to watch again.
I agree, its stinks that migraines aren't like a normal injury that can heal through surgery or time. I wish Percy the best.
I suffered with migraines for years until I got acupuncture done back in 1983. Since then I might have had three or four total. Wish Percy could get some kind of treatment like that. It would lengthen his career considerably.
I never understood how bad they could be until I had a few. They're brutal and I get the lighter ones.
