Vikings Mini-Camp 2012: LB Chad Greenway Rejoins Team After Brief Absence

After missing a number of voluntary workouts, Minnesota Vikings veteran linebacker Chad Greenway was welcomed back by teammates at Tuesday's mini-camp.

Coming off a 154-tackle campaign with the Vikings last year, Greenway had been unavailable for team practices while he was in South Dakota tending to his ailing father who continues his fight with leukemia. And while the star linebacker's father is not actually in hospice care as was earlier reported, he remains at the Mayo Clinic and doctors warn that his leukemia, while currently in remission, will likely return.

Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier gave Greenway the assurance that he could miss his squad's mini-camp if needed, but the sure-handed tackler was happy to be back with his teammates and get back to football. "Every day and every minute you're thinking about it," Greenway said. "But at the same point you have to go to work and it is a reprieve to be at work and be around my friends and do something that I love."
