Griffin has entered concussion protocol and will be week to week.

See the report below:

“Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen suffered a concussion in a car accident this week after swerving to miss a deer, coach Mike Zimmer said Friday.

Griffen, who landed on the injury report because of the concussion, has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals along with Anthony Barr (knee), Christian Darrisaw (groin) and Harrison Hand (hamstring).”

Some compare football players colliding to car accidents, and yes, concussions happen on and off the field.

You just don’t want your Concussions to  happen when you’re not getting paid to hit someone.

Tough break for Griffen.
