Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen was involved in a car accident on his way to practice on Thursday. He reportedly swerved to miss a deer and suffered a concussion as a result of the accident.
He's now in the concussion protocol and has been ruled out of Sunday's game.
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen suffered a concussion in a car accident this week after swerving to miss a deer, coach Mike Zimmer said Friday.
Griffen, who landed on the injury report because of the concussion, has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals along with Anthony Barr (knee), Christian Darrisaw (groin) and Harrison Hand (hamstring).
If you're Griffen you have to hate that you're using one of your c words on a car accident. You have to save those for Sundays. There's only so many of them you can get before the CTE starts to kick in.
