Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin remains absent from the team, coping with migraine headaches.

Coach Brad Childress confirmed Tuesday that Harvin has had ``some'' migraines recently. Childress said Harvin is resting at his home in the Twin Cities area.
The second-year standout from Florida, who made the Pro Bowl as a rookie kickoff returner, left the Vikings nine days ago when his grandmother died and has not been back to camp.
Harvin has had migraines for most of his life. Last season, the condition kept him out of a December game and out of practice for most of the week before the NFC championship game.
Receiver Sidney Rice also has a hip injury. The Vikings signed receiver Freddie Brown to add depth and released safety Terrell Skinner.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com currently list the Vikings at 12/1 to win the 2011 Super Bowl and 13/2 to win the NFC. They’re also +150 on the money line to win the NFC North Division and have an over/under win total of 9.5 games this season.
