Everson 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.
Everson 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.
Everson 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.
Everson 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.
Everson Griffen (shoulder) didn't practice Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "I'm going to practice [Friday] and see how it feels, but I'm going to be playing," Griffen said afterward. "I should be good."
Griffen clearly intends to play through a shoulder injury Sunday, when he'll look to add to his team-high 8.5 sacks against the Bears' Jay Cutler.
