Vikings Star Everson Griffen Appears Seriously Damaged
Minnesota Vikings are dealing with their first loss of the season just like the Green Bay Packers. For the Vikings, this loss is much worse considering they fell to the lowly Buffalo Bills at home whilst being 17 point favorites. Unfortunately for Minnesota, they’re dealing with bigger issues than football. Their star defensive end Everson Griffen appears to have something wrong with him mentally at the moment. Griffin is currently in the hospital and taking a break from football. It’s unknown if he will be back this season for the Vikings.
Correction: Everson Griffin was never arrested. MPD called to hotel. Hotel personnel say Griffin was making vague threats about “shooting up the place”. He was later *detained* by police in western Hennepin County, taken into protective hold and taken to a hospital for evaluation

What happened here? The internet has all sorts of stories out on him at the moment. There are people accusing him of cocaine use, even though, none was found in his system. There are partying/drinking accusations leading up to the game (Vikings pulled a Varsity Blues on the Bills? Respect). Same with pulling a gun on someone and going into a teammate’s house. At some point, Minnesota needs to get ahead of the story because the internet is very close to running wild with their theories on what really happened to Griffin.
The NFL is watching this story with baited breath. If this results in Griffen’s mind is completely fucked because of CTE then we have the biggest story of the season, and it will not be going away any time soon. That becomes the story of the year in football, and maybe sports. Trust me, the league does not want that to happen. Hopefully, Griffin gets the help he needs in the weeks to come.
