Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin was back at practice for the first time since collapsing last Thursday.

Harvin has missed a good portion of the team's practices this summer while dealing with migraine headaches and the death of his grandmother.

Harvin, last season's Offensive Rookie of the Year winner, grew into one of quarterback Brett Favre's favorite targets. He was also explosive on special teams. He returned two kickoffs for touchdowns during the season and was named to the Pro Bowl as a kick returner.

Harvin left training camp on July 31st to be with his family after his grandmother had passed away. Migraine-related symptoms also caused him to miss the rest of training camp.

He returned to practice last Monday, but has been out for nearly a week after last Thursday's episode in which he vomited on the field and was briefly unresponsive.

The Vikings added wide receiver Greg Camarillo in a trade with the Miami Dolphins earlier today. The team sent corner back Benny Sapp to Miami in order to acquire Camarillo.

Camarillo, a five year veteran, caught 105 passes for 1,165 yards over the past two seasons with only two touchdowns.
