CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The Vikings placed defensive end Everson Griffen on the reserve/non-football illness list to address his mental health, the team announced Friday. The move comes two days after an incident at Griffen’s home in which the veteran pass-rusher posted videos of himself acting erratically while holding a gun and summoned police to his home early Wednesday morning. In cooperation with law enforcement, the Vikings had team representatives and mental health professionals on-site at Griffen’s home.

A four-time Pro Bowler, Griffen was named a team captain prior to Zimmer’s second season as the Vikings’ head coach in 2015.
