Harvin visits Mayo Clinic
Vikings rookie wide receiver Percy Harvin visited the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., on Tuesday, according to coach Brad Childress.
Childress confirmed Harvin's visit during his weekly appearance on Sirius NFL Radio. Harvin had told NBC's Andrea Kremer before Sunday's game at Carolina that he has been found to have two bulging disks in his neck and was going to visit the Mayo. Childress refused to confirm that fact following the Vikings' loss to the Panthers.

Wednesday practice report
The Vikings just started Wednesday's practice and every player is participating at least on a limited basis.
That obviously is enouraging news for the Vikings and for rookie Percy Harvin in particular. Harvin visited the Mayo Clinic on Tuesday with a team doctor to see specialists about two bulging disks in his neck.
Harvin told NBC about the problem on Saturday and he confirmed his trip to Mayo. He declined to talk specifics but said it was a productive meeting.
"Yeah, it’s a relief," he said. "Without going into it, we had a great visit and came up with a great plan. I saw great doctors and it should be good from now on. I’m all good."

Biggs: Childress announces Harvin is healthy
Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress announced wide receiver Percy Harvin is healthy a day after the sensational rookie visited the Mayo Clinic.
Harvin reportedly has two bulging discs in his neck, and he missed practice for most of the last two weeks and one game because of recurring migraine headaches.
“He’s healthy. I think I said before without getting into anything, we’ve got a good plan for him,’’ Childress said, making it sound like the plan is for him to play Monday night against the Bears at Soldier Field. “He was down to the Mayo Clinic yesterday and I think we’ve had a good plan and have a good plan moving forward. I’m not concerned about it but you know I am not a clairvoyant either.
