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.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen (foot) was limited at practice Thursday.

Griffen was a wrecking ball in the first half of the season, racking up 10 sacks in the initial eight outings. According to Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune, Griffen took a seat Week 10 as a result of plantar fasciitis in his left foot. In the meantime, Griffen was a shell of himself, at least in terms of production, with just three more sacks. Griffen's sudden appearance on the injury report following a bye week and full participation Wednesday is a bit worrisome for the Vikings' pass-rush potential, but the limitations may be maintenance-based. Expect the team to give the final word on his availability for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Saints by week's end.

Vikings' Everson Griffen: Records 13th sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen had five total tackles and his 13th sack in Sunday's loss at Carolina.

After recording a sack in each of Minnesota's first eight games, Griffen had failed to record a sack in two of his last three games. He has a nice matchup in Week 14 against a struggling Bengals offensive line that has given up the 12th most sacks in the NFL.
