Durable Vikings DE Griffen: 'I take care of my body.'

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Everson Griffen revealed this week the foot problem that sidelined him for one of Minnesota's game last month was a plantar fascia injury. That painful condition in the ligament connecting the heel to the toes can linger for weeks and significantly limit a player's strength.

That sure hasn't slowed him since he returned. Whatever resistance Griffen has faced this year has done little to sidetrack his relentless pursuit of the ball for the Vikings at his right defensive end position.

After getting hurt at the end of the game against Cleveland in London, Griffen needed the bye week and the game at Washington on Nov. 12 to rest. After a soft launch the following week, when his eight-game sack streak ended, Griffen came back four days later with two sacks at Detroit on Thanksgiving Day . He got five hits on quarterback Matt Ryan at Atlanta the week after that. Then he got his 13th sack of the season at Carolina.
