Greenway traveled to Detroit and is active for Thursday's game against the Lions despite the impending birth of his child, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Greenway said he could miss Thursday's game at Detroit if his wife gave birth to the couple's fourth child before the game. He'll start but may not get significant playing time as he's likely to come off the field in passing situations with Eric Kendricks healthy.

Greenway is expected to have a larger role on defense with Eric Kendricks out with a concussion, as he'll stay on the field in nickel situations, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
While Greenway is a starting linebacker, he's only been playing about 30 percent of the snaps on defense as he'd come off the field in passing situations for another defensive back. Audie Cole is likely to start at middle linebacker in place of Kendricks, but Cole is likely to be the one to come off the field in passing situations.

Greenway played a career-low two snaps on defense in Monday's win over the Giants, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Greenway isn't on the field in passing situations, and the Vikings are working to manage the playing time of the 33-year-old. He won't be a factor for IDP leagues unless he's pushed into a larger role due to injuries.

The Vikings and Greenway agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Greenway thus confirmed his offseason intentions to play one more season and complete his career with one organization. While his usage tumbled to 59 percent of the defensive snaps in 2015, he
fared well in his move to weak-side linebacker, yielding 68 tackles (55 solo), 2.5 sacks, and one interception for a touchdown for IDP pursuits.

Greenway will play one final season with the Vikings.
On Thursday Greenway told Phil Savage on SiriusXM NFL Radio, "I have one more year of football in me. A goal of mine was to play in one place for my whole career. I want to finish here." Last season Greenway recorded 86 tackles and 2.5 sacks.

Greenway had seven tackles, including one tackle for loss, in Sunday's win over Green Bay.
The veteran linebacker was able to hold up through the season after injuries shortened his 2014 campaign. While he didn't register the gaudy tackle numbers he has in the past, Greenway was still a relatively effective cog in the Vikings' defensive scheme. Still, Greenway will be a 33-year-old unrestricted free agent this spring and with the Vikings continuing to get younger on that side of the ball, he could very well need to take another bargain-level contract to remain with the club.
