Head coach Mike Zimmer expects Griffen (foot) to play Sunday against the Rams, Matthew Coller of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports. "My foot is great. I'll be playing on Sunday for sure," Griffen reiterated.

EDGE Analysis

Griffen went through pregame warmups prior to last Sunday's game against the Redskins but was surprisingly held out due to an undisclosed foot injury that's been bothering him. He might be limited in practice the next few days, but it sounds like he's in line to suit up this week against the Rams, when Griffen could have a tough matchup against three-time Pro Bowler and 2015 All-Pro left tackle Andrew Whitworth.

Griffen recorded two solo tackles, a sack and forced a fumble Monday against the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the fifth straight game that Griffen has recorded a sack, cementing him as the Vikings' top pass rusher with six sacks so far this season. His inconsistency racking up a relevant amount of tackles is troubling, though, since his IDP value is reliant on his sack count. It'll be interesting how he performs against the Packers in Week 6, especially with the injuries on Green Bay's offensive front.
