Griffin Suffers Significant Knee Injury

The Vikings didn’’t escape Monday’s loss to the Jets without a few injuries.

Brian Robison was carted off the field after injuring his ankle half way through the second quarter.  He was wearing pads when he returned to the sideline, but did not see any more playing time.

Ray Edwards and Percy Harvin each limped off the field at different points but were each able to return to action.

Perhaps the most worrisome injury (other than a certain quarterback’s throwing arm) is what happened to Cedric Griffin.

Griffin had recently returned to action after recovering from an ACL injury that he suffered in the NFC Championship game against the Saints.  Griffin appeared to suffer a similar injury but he told reporters as he left the field, “It’s something new. It ain’t the same (knee).”

Same knee or not, Griffin left the stadium on crutches, and early rumors are that ESPN is reporting he could miss the remainder of the season, although I haven’t seen those reports myself.  We should know for sure sometime in the next couple of days.

    When Farve was with the Jets if everyone recalls, he got off to a great start and then went into a major skid when his arm/shoulder was in pain. The Jets in turn went into the tank. Farve’s interceptions went up and he was just terrible. Looking back, I suspect the Jets wish they would have let him sit to heal.

    Freds thinks Childo now has the same dilemma, Favre was gripping himself constantly (his arm that is)in the second half. He missed some pretty easy throws that might be attributed to the injured arm. So, coach of the year Brads now needs to evaluate Banjos viability as an asset versus an interception machine. If dude is really that hurt even after a bye week, one week worth of therapy isn’t going to be enough to get him ready for Sunday. So does Baldeene have the hairs to sit down Farve, let him rest and break the consecutive game streak? Favre still gives the Vikes the best chance to win, but not if he’s injured. Favre is too selfish to sit himself, is Brad able? Oh the pain of thinking about TJizzle starting next week!!

    I honestly believe is Jackson was starting these first 4 weeks the Vikings would have a better record. Not saying they would be 4-0 but it would be better. I say stop worrying about Favre starting because of his streak and let him get healthy and start Jackson.

    very little room for losses now, unless the nfc totally implodes, which it could. at least it was the afc. we gotta win the next two

    did we turn a corner in this game’s 3rd quarter that can be sustained? can’t keep digging this hole deeper
