Vikings’ Everson Griffen out Sunday with concussion after being involved in car accident

Vikings, Everson Griffen

The Minnesota Vikings have a big list of players out for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. Anthony Barr, Christian Darrisaw, Harrison Hand, and Everson Griffen are all absent from the game on Sunday with various injuries in a situation that does not bode well for Minnesota. Griffen, however, is out with a concussion that he suffered after being involved in a car accident on Thursday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. 

The Vikings lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1 in overtime in a rather thrilling game, although not the result they were hoping for. Now the Vikings are down a handful of players heading into a tough Week 2 matchup against the Cardinals, who just embarrassed the Tennessee Titans.

The hope is that Griffen won’t have to miss much time, and on another note that Darrisaw can make his Vikings debut sooner rather than later. Mike Zimmer’s team is going to do whatever it takes to avoid beginning the season 0-2, but being down these guys certainly doesn’t help, and Eric Kendricks is listed as questionable.

Hopefully Griffen is ok after the car accident and he can recover and heal and make his return for the Vikings in Week 3.
