Vikings DE Griffen on leave; team concerned about well-being

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen has been sidelined indefinitely by an undisclosed situation that has caused concern within the organization about his well-being.

Griffen was ruled out on the pregame injury report against Buffalo on Sunday because of what was listed as knee trouble. When asked afterward why Griffen wasn't on the sideline, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said the ninth-year player and three-time Pro Bowl pick was dealing with a "personal matter." He did not elaborate.

Griffen did not take part in on-field activities at team headquarters on Monday, and the reason for the absence on the injury report was listed as both the knee and "not injury related." KSTP-TV reported , citing unnamed sources, that Griffen was involved in a weekend disturbance at a downtown hotel. He was not arrested.
