Vikings' Chad Greenway deals with fractured wrist

Posted by: Master Tesfatsion Updated: December 1, 2013 - 6:30 PM

Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway left Sunday’s 23-20 overtime win over the Bears with a fractured right wrist he’s played with for over a month.

Greenway left during the overtime period due when he said safety Andrew Sendejo reaggravated the injury. He sprained the wrist against the Giants in Week 7 then fractured it in two spots the following week against the Packers.

“This organization has been far too good to the Greenway’s for me to do that,” Greenway said about sitting out. “Ad Fred Pagac says, it’s about four or five feet from my heart so keep playing. These guys in this locker room, as trying as this season has been, I love these guys in here and we’ve been playing for each other and it hasn’t been easy.”

Greenway finished tied with a team-high 10 tackles, three for loss. He also recorded a sack in the win.
