  • Vikings' Everson Griffen: Placed on reserve/NFI list

    The Vikings placed Griffen (personal) on the reserve/non-football illness list Friday, Eric Smith of the team's official site reports.

    Griffen dealt with a personal issue Wednesday and hasn't been with the team since then. The Vikings later announced he "is now getting the care he needs," and "our focus remains on Everson's health and safety and providing the proper resources for him and his family."

  • Vikings' Everson Griffen: Away from team

    Griffen is away from the Vikings after mental health and law enforcement officials were called to his residence Wednesday afternoon, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Griffen was "transported (to where he can get) to the necessary resources and professionals that he needs to be with," said Vikings general manager Rick Spielman.

    Griffen posted a disturbing video on social media early Wednesday morning and called 911 to report a possible intruder, according to the Pioneer Press. No intruder was found in his home after local law enforcement officials and mental health officials responded, and Griffen was later transported by ambulance to a health care facility.

  • Vikings' Everson Griffen: Two sacks in expanded role

    Griffen got the start at defensive end opposite Danielle Hunter and had two sacks, three QB hits and four tackles in Sunday's win over Detroit. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer had said Griffen would come off the bench, but he elevated to him as a starter over D.J. Wonnum due to his recent play, the Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Griffen played on a season-high 49 of the defense's 68 snaps. He had before been thought of as a situation pass rusher, but he's getting playing time on all downs. Still, he may share the role with Wonnum (who had 40 snaps) to keep both fresh.

  • Vikings' Everson Griffen: Will be available Sunday

    Griffen (concussion) will play Sunday against Seattle, according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

    Griffen suffered the concussion last week in a car accident and didn't feature in Week 2 against the Cardinals, but he wasn't listed on the injury report throughout the week and has recovered well enough to be available for Sunday's matchup. He played 41 percent of the defensive snaps in Week 1 against the Bengals.

  • Vikings' Everson Griffen: Returns to practice

    Griffen (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Minnesota co-defensive coordinator Andre Patterson is optimistic Griffen can play this week against Seattle, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Griffen suffered the concussion Thursday in a car accident and missed last week's game. He swerved to miss a deer and hit a tree. It sounds like he will clear the concussion protocol and be ready to play this week.
