    Report: Harvin could rejoin Vikings tonight

    Report: Harvin could rejoin Vikings tonight

    Percy Harvin's absence from the Vikings reportedly should be ending shortly.

    The wide receiver is expected to rejoin the Vikings this week and it could be as early as tonight, according to a report from CBS Sports. The website sites sources close to Harvin in its report.

    Harvin left the Vikings on July 31 after the death of his grandmother and did not return in part because of another battle with migraine headaches. The Vikings sent Harvin a "five-day letter" on Friday in order to gain a roster exemption. The letter gives the Vikings the right to put Harvin on the reserve/left camp list after five days. That would end Harvin's season, something the Vikings have no intention of doing.

    The Vikings do, however, want to get Harvin back and it appears that will happen.
    I hope so. I just bought a Harvin away jersey.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    LOL! That was my first thought too Z.

    I would have hoped during the offseason he would have found a cure for this, did he get these all the time while playing college ball?

    There's a big part of me that thinks his preference for the leafy green stuff might have helped alleviate some of these issues for him. Performance enhancing, indeed.

    It takes a five day letter?

    So, he wouldn't have come back without it.

    He is coming back from it, so either not ok or else he was slouching.

    Do they test for pot in the NFL? Maybe he should smoke more to ease the pain on off days....

    Yes, they test for pot in the NFL. I wonder, however, if it was medicinal (and you had a doctor's note) if that would make you exempt. Probably not.

    Yeah, I highly doubt it because you know half the league would be finding a doctor to write them a note.

    Or going to med school in Jamaica in the off-season.

    LOL! "Calling Dr. Randy Moss! Paging Dr. Moss!"

    Re:Report: Harvin could rejoin Vikings tonight

    I was actually just talking to a customer at work about this yesterday.

    I think the Williams' case could have an impact on medicinal marijuana use in the NFL in the future.

    If it's deemed legal for medicinal use by the federal government, I don't think there is any way the NFL can prohibit it(for medicinal use.) It is not performance enhancing. It would be like the NFL making penicillin illegal.

    However, on a state by state basis it would get fishy. That's why I mentioned the Williams case and the debate regarding federal or state laws and applicability to the NFL.


    Is medicinal marijuana legal in Minnesota yet?

    We can't even go to liquor stores on Sunday, I think we're a long ways off from having legal medicinal marijuana.
