Just posted in another thread he's back at practice and Zimmer expects him to play. We'll be without Remmers (concussion) and Sirles (knee)

Griffen is expected to play Sunday.
Tim Yoder of Vikings Update wrote:The Minnesota Vikings continued practice Thursday without DE Everson Griffen participating, but he appears to be getting closer with each passing day and head coach Mike Zimmer said he anticipates Griffen playing Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

“He just loves to play the game. He just loves to play. Yesterday, he was mad he didn’t practice,” Zimmer said on Thursday. “He was grouchy all day yesterday.”

Hell be inactive. Whenever Zimmer says he expects someone to play, they sit. Just watch.

After ruling out five players before last Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, the Washington Redskins head into Sunday’s Week 10 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings with only defensive linemen Arthur Jones(shoulder dislocation) and Matt Ioannidis (hand) ruled out.


Tackles Trent Williams (knee), Morgan Moses (ankles) and Ty Nsekhe (core muscle), wide receivers Jamison Crowder(hamstring) and Brian Quick(concussion), tight ends Jordan Reed(hamstring) and Niles Paul(concussion), center Spencer Long (knees), guards Shawn Lauvao(stinger) and Brandon Scherff (knee), linebacker Zach Brown (ankle) and safety Montae Nicholson (shoulder) questionable for the game.

I think the Vikings D line with or without Griffin is going to eat the Skins alive on Sunday. Their O line is so banged up, I will be surprised if we don't have atleast 5 sacks. Getting after Cousins is the best way of making him make mistakes.

If Reed and Crowder are out I think the only player we have to watch out for is Chris Thompson, also the Skins the past few weeks have a non existent running game.

Vikings win 28-9

Although questionable, I think both Reed and Crowder are active. I think they practiced a bit Thursday and Friday.

This is one of those games I think that if we were to lose it's because we shot ourselves in the foot.

T.J. Clemmings may well be starting again at tackle for the Skins.

Please make it so.

Cousins scares me. I think he's underrated as a QB. He doesn't make mistakes, and he knows how to lead the team down field when needed.

Main pieces of the Redskins offense seem pretty banged up.

Has anybody seen confirmation on that? I only ask because Robison has floated, but has primarily played on the left in his career. Hunter has been the starter this year, but he's a more dynamic rusher and has played both sides.

I can see the rationale between either choice, I just don't know if we've seen anything from the team.

Packers, Bears, and Lions all playing at noon too. Guess we won't be watching any other NFCN action tomorrow.

Bowers would be my preference but B-Rob is the most likely choice.
