Vikes Childress talks about Harvin

Minneapolis Star-Tribune - [Full Article]

Vikings WR Percy Harvin doubled over and vomited at 12:11 p.m. and then fell to the field. Teammates gathered around him as a cart was initially brought out but practice continued. Practice was stopped about six minute later and an Eden Prairie police car arrived at 12:20 p.m. Five minutes later an ambulance arrived on the field as players and coaches watched.

A group of players remained gathered around Harvin.

"I don't know how to classify [the episode]," Childress said. "Not reallly a seizure but he had some trouble over here. I'd be remiss if I tried to qualify it one way or the other. He seemed like he was stable. Shugs [head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman], Dr. [Sheldon] Burns and Dr. [Chris] Larson were all with him right there and Shugs and Dr. Burns rode to the hospital with him. ... As we say those things [migraines] can be debilitating and obviously that one hit and hit hard. It's always scary for all of our guys when you see a teammate struggling with whatever. We said a quick prayer for him."
