Griffen (shoulder) is active for Sunday's wild-card contest against the Seahawks. Coming off back-to-back double-digit sack campaigns, Griffen may have difficulty bringing down the ever-elusive Russell Wilson. Nevertheless, Griffen has notched 22.5 sacks over the last 31 games during the aforementioned stretch.
Griffen (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's playoff game against the Seahawks. Griffen was limited earlier in the week to help rest his shoulder issue, but returned as a full participant in Friday's practice. Following a pair of sacks and a fumble forced last weekend, Griffen is expected to play through any discomfort once again this Sunday.
Griffen recorded six tackles with two sacks Sunday against the Packers and added one forced fumble. Griffen uncorked a monster game in Sunday's season finale against the Packers, taking advantage of a banged up offensive line to post his best individual performance of the season. He wasn't only a force as a pass rusher, however, as he was also able to record of run stuffs totaling six yards lost for the Packers. Griffen continues to improve as a versatile defensive end that can rush the passer, as evidenced by his back-to-back seasons with double-digit sacks. At just 28 years of age, Griffen is showing no signs of slowing down.
Griffin (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. True to his word, Griffen will suit up Sunday, despite practicing on just one occasion this week. Though Griffen's total of 33 tackles over 12 games leaves a little to be desired, his ability to consistently get after the quarterback has justified the big contract extension the Vikings handed him in March 2014. After a 12-sack campaign in 2014, Griffen has compiled 8.5 sacks so far this season.
Griffen (shoulder) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. Griffen was limited in Friday's practice, which marked progress after sitting out Thursday's session. While the veteran's status is officially on the fence, Griffen previously suggested he intends to play come Sunday.
