Vikings' Everson Griffen: Sitting out OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen is dealing with a left knee injury and was unable to practice Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Griffen has been sidelined for over a week with what head coach Mike Zimmer described as a "little tweak," according to Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. As this knee issue is completely unrelated to the torn plantar fascia that hindered the defensive end during the second half of the 2017 season, it's too early in the offseason to get worried about Griffen's absence from spring practices. However, the tune could change if the 30-year-old remains under limitations during training camp.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Clear of foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen (foot) participated in offseason workouts with the Vikings on Tuesday, Andrew Krammer of The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

Griffen suffered a torn plantar fascia in Week 8 and was hampered for the rest of the season, recording only three sacks over the team's final eight games of the regular season. The 30-year-old battled through the injury -- missing only one game -- and still posted an impressive 13-sack season overall, and appears to be entering offseason workouts at full strength.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Posts 13 sacks on season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen (undisclosed) recorded 45 tackles (31 solo), 13 sacks, three forced fumbles and one pass defensed across 15 games in 2017.

Griffen continues to be one of the most dominant pass rushers in the game, as his career-high 13 sacks tied him for fourth best in the league. Now 30, Griffen has proven to be one of the most durable and dependable cogs in Minnesota's defense, logging 795 defensive snaps on the year.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Will sit out Pro Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen is dealing with an undisclosed injury and will not play in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Griffen's injury is officially undisclosed, but he did deal with a plantar fasciitis issue at the tail end of the regular season. Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett has been named Griffen's replacement for Sunday.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen (foot) does not appear on the injury report ahead of Sunday's NFC divisional-round game against the Saints.

Griffen suddenly popped up on the injury report Thursday with a foot injury presumably related to the plantar fasciitis issue that nagged him down the stretch of the regular season. However, he returned as a full participant in Friday's practice and is fully on track to suit up for Sunday's game against the Saints.
