Minnesota Vikings OTAs: LB Chad Greenway May Be Excused From Minicamp Due To Family Emergency

The Minnesota Vikings are expecting to be be without veteran linebacker Chad Greenway at next week's mandatory minicamp, as the team is willing to excuse him from team activities due to a family emergency according to the Pioneer Press.

Greenway will most likely be in South Dakota with family when minicamp gets underway, meaning that he will have missed three consecutive weeks of activities. "His family situation is something that he's dealing with," Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said. "We may or may not have him back."

Thankfully for the rest of the Vikings roster, Frazier does not expect anyone else to be limited or unable to participate starting next week. "I expect full participation from everybody. The only question mark will be Chad," said the third-year head coach.

The 29-year-old Greenway made his first career Pro Bowl after a 154-tackle, two-sack campaign with the Vikings last season. For both Greenway and his family's sake, hopefully everything in South Dakota will work itself out in due time and everyone involved can return to a sense of normalcy.
