Griffen was a surprising late scratch on Sunday due to an illness, and the team didn't provide further details at the time.
The Vikings defensive end told reporters he felt bad Sunday morning and went to the hospital. Griffen didn't disclose his medical situation and said he checked out of the hospital under his own power in order to watch the end of the game.
The USC product has had a standout season, anchoring a stout Minnesota defensive line.
Here are other injuries we're keeping track of today:
- Cardinals wideout John Brown's hamstring tightened up during practice and he was limited. He played with a hamstring injury last week and it didn't affect his play as he totaled 196 yards on 10 catches against the Steelers. Tight end Darren Fells (shoulder) did not practice and linebacker LaMarr Woodley (chest) was limited.
