Everson Griffen’s streak of consecutive games with a sack is on hold. The Vikings’ defensive end is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
All week, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he expected defensive end Griffen would play after injuring his foot on the last play of the team’s Oct. 29 game against the Browns. And Griffen was on the field warming up before the Vikings’ game against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field.
It’s likely Griffen felt something during his warmup that made him think he wouldn’t be able to play against the Redskins. As it is, a team that listed all five of its starting offensive linemen as questionable will have the group together for the first time since Week 7, while the Vikings will be without their best pass rusher.
Brian Robison will start in place of Griffen. On the offensive side of the ball, Rashod Hill starts at right tackle with Mike Remmers out because of a concussion.
Here is the Vikings’ full list of inactives:
–QB Kyle Sloter
–WR Stacey Coley
–RB Mack Brown
–T Mike Remmers
–G Jeremiah Sirles
–DE Everson Griffen
–DE Tashawn Bower
