Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen is reportedly being evaluated at a Minneapolis-area hospital after an incident last Saturday, according to ESPN. After interviewing the couple, police requested an ambulance and Griffen was taken to Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina, where he was placed on a police-ordered health and welfare hold. "I just hope the best for him". The driver took Griffen home after speaking with Tiffany, the police report said.

The primary concern for Griffen is what happened over the weekend, as officers of the Minneapolis Police Department were called to Hotel Ivy on Saturday because, per a police report obtained by ESPN's Courtney Cronin, "an individual was threatening to shoot someone if he wasn't allowed in his room".

The incident report states that hotel staff believed Griffen was possibly under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.

KSTP, citing the police report, indicated that hotel staffers moved to the back of the office as a man paced in the lobby. Family members told police they feared for their safety and for Griffen's, detailing what one acquaintance described as a nervous breakdown.

Griffen was withheld from Sunday's 27-6 loss to the previously winless Buffalo Bills at U.S. Bank Stadium because of a knee injury and did not attend the game because of what the team called a personal issue.

Police called to the scene said they found Griffen walking along the side of the road with his hands up in the air.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Griffen will not travel with the team to Los Angeles on Tuesday evening for Thursday's game against the Rams. Griffen then left the hotel and returned to his home on Lake Minnetonka.

Reached by Kokesh on his phone, Griffen said he had no thoughts about harming himself or anyone else.

After being told to leave practice, Griffen went to the Hotel Ivy, where he had been staying during the week after leaving his home. "If we have to bring in experts from some other place, or if he has to go see other people, our owners are outstanding with that, so we're going to do everything possible that we can, not only for Everson, but for everybody on our team, and quite honestly, with their families as well".

Griffen then went to a nearby gas station, where he saw a man who works at an establishment he frequents.

At a news conference Tuesday, Zimmer at first referred to Spielman's statement before saying that "the only thing I'm really concerned for Everson about isn't anything to do with football, it's about him getting better". He signed a four-year, $58 million contract extension in 2017.

He has been named to the Pro Bowl each of the past three years and has 62 career sacks.
