NFL's Everson Griffen Suffers Concussion In Car Crash After Swerving To Miss Deer

Everson Griffen will miss the Vikings’ game this weekend … after he injured himself attempting to swerve out of the way of a deer in the road on Thursday.

Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer explained the situation to reporters Friday … saying Griffen crashed his car while trying to avoid the animal.

Zimmer said the 33-year-old pass rusher was later diagnosed with a concussion … and is now out of action indefinitely.

“Swerved to miss a deer,” Zimmer told media members of the incident. “Got in a car accident.”

We’ve reached out to law enforcement for more information on the wreck … but so far, no word back yet.

Griffen — who played for Minnesota from 2010 to 2019 — re-signed with the Vikings just a few weeks ago … and played in the team’s opener against Cincinnati last Sunday.

Griffen has 80.5 sacks in 90 starts in his career.
