This isn't the first time Percy Harvin has been sent home due to being sick.

In April, Harvin was flying to Minnesota to participate in the Vikings' initial rookie mini-camps when he started feeling ill on the plane.

Harvin actually threw up on the plane coming from Florida to Atlanta, and was sent to a nearby hospital, where he was hostipalized with a virus and severe dehydration.

Percy Harvin was however, released a few days later, only to miss the mini-camps.
