At 1-3, the Vikings have to prepare on a short week for their “Do or Die Bowl” with the similarly disappointing Cowboys. It sounds like Minnesota will have to face Dallas without one of their key defenders.
Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports cornerback Cedric Griffin will get an MRI on his right knee on Tuesday. Zulgad says it sounds like the news may not be good.
Griffin, a fifth-year player that signed a contract extension last year, tore his ACL in his left knee in the 2009 playoffs. Griffin was helped off the field in the fourth quarter Monday night.
Losing Griffin would be a big blow to a thin secondary. Rookie cornerback Chris Cook is also recovering from a knee surgery.
