Surprise breaking news on a Tuesday night as the Vikings and Everson Griffen announced that the defensive end plans to return to the Vikings and will resume activities Wednesday at TCO in Eagan.
Below is a statement from Griffen who will return to the football field after being away from the team for the last month...
Being around my teammates and coaches is something I have missed for several weeks. While this is an exciting and positive move forward for me, it is only the next step in a longer process. I look forward to once again putting in the work with the guys and contributing to this team in any way I can. My larger focus remains on addressing my personal health, and I’m hopeful the time will come when I feel comfortable sharing my story and using my platform to bring awareness to these issues. I continue to be extremely grateful for the constant support from my family, my teammates, the Vikings organization and our tremendous fans.
