The Minnesota Vikings will be without their star pass rusher against Washington.

Everson Griffen, who missed two days of practice this week, will be out with a foot injury. Head coach Mike Zimmer said on Thursday that he expected Griffen to play. The Vikings’ starting D-end has at least one sack in each game this season and 10.0 sacks in total. Brian Robison will take his place.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is active for the first time since the 2016 preseason.

For Washington, tight end Jordan Reed is out. Star left tackle Trent Williams and receiver Jamison Crowder are active.

    Why was he playing on the last series of a 3 score game

      Sometimes the HC needs to protect his players from themselves ~ However Griffin is one of those players who much like J. Allen and Robison b!tches when they are not out on the field ~ I’m sure they have a exchange word more than once over this very subject ~ Zimmer’s defensive players are firey just like him ~

    My thoughts exactly.
