Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress confirmed while meeting with reporters on Tuesday afternoon that CB Cedric Griffin will miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury he suffered with about 10 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter of Monday night’s loss to the NY Jets.
You have to feel for Griffin because he’s been a young, up-and-coming player on the Vikings defense and now he’ll be rehabbing a significant knee injury for the 2nd consecutive year. He injured an ACL in last year’s NFC Championship Game at New Orleans and spent the entire offseason and training camp rehabbing it. He eventually made it back on the playing field ahead of schedule.
Now Griffin will go through the rigorous rehab process again. Coming back from dual significant knee injuries is certainly difficult but it’s not impossible. In fact, Vikings LB Chad Greenway, who was drafted by the Vikings in the same year (2006) as Griffin, has done it. We send our best to Cedric as he begins the long, grueling road to recovery.
