Panthers' Michael Griffin: Signs contract with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin (back) signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Tuesday.

Griffin, a 10-year veteran, signed with the Vikings during the offseason but was cut by the team before the start of the season after being placed on injured reserve due to a back injury. The Panthers have not commented on the health status of Griffin, but look for updates to come later in the week. Once healthy, Griffin could potentially compete with Kurt Coleman for the starting job at strong safety.

Vikings' Michael Griffin: Gets start Sunday but hurts his back
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin got the start at safety opposite Harrison Smith in Sunday's preseason game, but left in the second quarter due to a back injury and was later seen leaving the locker room on crutches, ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities reports.

Griffin had one tackle before departing. He got the start in the third preseason game over Andrew Sendejo, but head coach Mike Zimmer indicated the competition for the second safety spot isn't decided. However, Griffin's injury could make Sendejo the starter if it's an issue for the start of the regular season.

Vikings' Michael Griffin: Gets start at safety Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin started at safety opposite Harrison Smith in Thursday's preseason win over Seattle. The competition for the starting safety job opposite Smith will likely be decided late in the preseason, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Andrew Sendejo started opposite Smith in the first preseaon game, so it looks like an even competition at this point with Antone Exum, Anthony Harris and Jayron Kearse also in the mix. Griffin had two tackles and a sack in Thursday's game.
