Vikings' Everson Griffen: Ready to rock in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen said his leg is "good" after cutting it on a table in August, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The cut became a concern once it became infected, but it sounds like that's cleared up. Griffen will go up against Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers in Week 1 as he tries to top the 13 sacks he made last season. He'll have a tough test against veteran LT Joe Staley, who Pro Football Focus ranked as the No. 5 pass-blocking tackle.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Active at Sunday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen (leg) participated in Sunday's practice and competed in some 11-on-11 snaps, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Griffen may not play in the Vikings' final preseason game against the Titans, but he is looking healthier and, barring a setback, should be good to go for the regular season opener on Sep. 9. As long as Griffen remains out of game action, Stephen Weatherly figures to see some additional action with the first-team defense.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Sitting out preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen (leg) will not play in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks.

Griffen didn't do much during the team's practice Wednesday, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the team will hold him out of action for the preseason contest. He will likely aim to be healthy by the time the regular season rolls around, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Vikings' brass takes a cautionary route with him the rest of the preseason.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Dealing with cut on leg, should be back soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen is reportedly close to returning to practice following an off-field incident in which he cut his leg against the end of table, Ben Goessling of the The Star Tribune reports.

It was previously reported that Griffen's absence was the result of personal reasons rather than anything injury related, however that doesn't appear to be the case. The cut on Griffen's leg is believed to be minor, and we could even see the defensive end play in Saturday's preseason game against Jacksonville. Either way, Griffen's absence seems to be nearing an end.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Closing in on 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen (knee) participated in Saturday's walk-through with a supportive brace, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It's unclear whether Griffen would have taken part in contact drills, but seeing him out on the field is already encouraging enough. The team has taken a cautious approach to governing his return to the gridiron. By the looks of it, Griffen is closing in on 100 percent health and should be fully back within the coming weeks.
