Vikings LB Chad Greenway entered Sunday's game at Miami dealing with the Friday night death of his father, who had been battling leukemia. He then left the game early with a knee injury. According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Greenway said he heard a pop as the joint bent backward. We'll see how serious the issue is and whether he'll be able to play in the team's final game next Sunday.
Vikings OLB Chad Greenway practiced with the team Wednesday, which just might indicate a return for the Week 7 trip to Buffalo. Greenway has missed the past 3 games after fracturing a rib but put in a limited practice Friday before participating Wednesday. His fill-in, Gerald Hodges, sat out the workout with a hamstring injury. We'll keep an eye on Greenway's status throughout the week. He has been about as consistent a fantasy performer as any IDP option through his starting career.
The Vikings have ruled out weak-side LB Chad Greenway for Thursday night's game at Green Bay because of a broken hand. Greenway missed Week 4 after playing limited snaps in the previous game. Gerald Hodges should once again start in his place and brings solid tackle upside for IDP formats.
HC Mike Zimmer said Vikings LB Chad Greenway is "probably" out for Week 4, barring some significant physical improvement before Sunday, according to Brian Hall of FOX Sports North. Greenway is dealing with a fractured hand and a fractured rib. Gerald Hodges appears likely to start in Greenway's place and presents upside after he racked up 7 tackles (6 solo) in just 19 snaps played against New Orleans last week.
Vikings LB Chad Greenway is active for Week 3's visit to New Orleans. That means he'll play through the broken hand he suffered in Week 2. Greenway figures to play with a club on the casted hand, which will challenge his tackling ability. Use that as a tiebreaker if you're weighing Greenway against a similar IDP option.
