Percy Harvin: MRI Reveals Minnesota Vikings Receiver Has Hip Strain

Minnesota Vikings receiver/kick returner Percy Harvin has a pain in his butt. But according to the results of an MRI today, it's nothing more than a hip strain.

Nevertheless, it will most likely limit Harvin in practice this week (yes, again) and he'll probably be listed as questionable for the Vikings' Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions.

Vikings head coach Brad Childress was optimistic about the injury:

"They determined a strain ..... He is doing better. Those are unfortunately nagging kinds of things; nothing that is dramatic going on there, which is always something you attempt to alleviate."

Harvin infamously missed a good deal of practice last year and most of training camp this season with severe migraine headache issues. But he seems to have resolved that problem after being diagnosed and treated for sleep apnea.

Now the Vikings are hoping his current hip injury doesn't linger, as the team is desperate for help at the receiver position and cannot afford to have Harvin miss any games, especially when they are struggling to get their first win.

Harvin managed five catches for 32 yards and two kickoff returns for an average of 22 yards in yesterday's home opening 14-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
