Everson Griffen will miss Sunday’s Vikings game against the Cardinals after he was involved in a car accident.

Head coach Mike Zimmer said Friday that Griffen was driving a car to the team’s headquarters in Eagan Thursday when he swerved to miss a deer, resulting in a car accident.

Griffen showed up on the injury report Thursday with a concussion, and has since been ruled out for Sunday’s noon kickoff at Arizona.

It’s unclear where the crash occurred. No further information about Griffen or the crash has been provided.
