Zimmer noted that Griffen would not have been able to play Sunday due to the knee injury.
A league source told Cronin that Griffen was told by the Vikings not to worry about practice last week or the Bills game and to instead place his focus on getting himself help.
Still, Zimmer has more on his mind than football: Namely, the well-being of Everson Griffen, a defensive star whose recent struggles have become front page news.
The Minnetrista Incident Report states there are no criminal charges forthcoming against Griffen since no crime was committed. "Again, I just hope the best for him".
On Saturday, Griffen, 30, was taken to a local hospital in protective custody for an evaluation following incidents at the Hotel Ivy in downtown Minneapolis and in Minnetrista. "We told him that he needed to go to a hospital and get checked out", an officer stated in his report.
Elder did not confirm that Griffen was the individual cited in the report.
The Vikings are "concerned" and focused on Pro Bowl defensive end Everson Griffen's "well-being" after a reported incident over the weekend at the team's hotel.
The Minnesota Police Department said Griffen allegedly created a scene nearly every time he entered the hotel.
Some of the details provided by Griffen's wife are extremely weird and concerning.
Head coach Mike Zimmer confirmed at a Tuesday press conference that the Vikings ordered Griffen to undergo a mental evaluation in a letter sent to Griffen and his agent. Added Pico: "Everson has paranoia and has been repeating himself lately".
Later that day, Griffen arrived at the west suburban home of teammate Trae Waynes.
Griffen's wife also told police that he has been growing increasingly paranoid and feared someone was going to kill him in the days and weeks leading up to Saturday's events. Griffen later returned home shirtless in a truck with a man who had seen him at a gas station and given him a ride. He also allegedly threatened to assault staff members and caused a scene by laying down on the lobby floor.
An officer told Tiffany Griffen that what she described wasn't enough to detain her husband for his own health and welfare. There was no arrest made in the incident.

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen is being treated at a mental health facility after a series of unusual incidents have his family and his team anxious about his well-being.
