Wide receiver Percy Harvin has returned to the Vikings after being away since July 31 and is on the field for today's practice.

Harvin did not return until now 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 gave the Vikings the right to put Harvin on the reserve/left camp list after five days. That would have ended Harvin's season, something the Vikings have no intention of doing. There seems to be little doubt the Vikings sent the letter with the hope of simply getting Harvin back. It appears the move worked.
