NFL News: Minnesota Vikings Corner Cedric Griffin Out For The Year

Griffin recovered quickly from his last knee injury, now he gets to recover from a knee injury to the other knee.

Minnesota Vikings Cornerback Cedric Griffin will miss the rest of the season with an injury to his right knee that will require surgery to fix. Vikings coach Brad Childress wouldn’t confirm that it was a torn ACL, but said that’s where it appeared to be headed.

Griffin torn his left ACL in the NFC Championship last season and made a quick recovery to be back in the line-up by week 3.

In Monday nights game, Griffin went down clutching his right knee and was shaking his head as he knew from expirience what had just happened.

The Vikings are hopeful rookie Chris Cook will be healthy enough to go this weekend as he recovers from a torn meniscus. If he can’t start, it will be the tandem of Asher Allen and Lito Sheppard trying to fill in for Griffin.
