Everson Griffen will miss Sunday’s Vikings game against the Cardinals after he was involved in a car accident.
Everson Griffen was involved in a car accident on his way into the practice facility on Thursday. Mike Zimmer said the DE swerved to miss a deer in the road. It’s why he showed up on the injury report with a concussion.

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.
