Cedric Griffin out for Season with Torn ACL

According to Tom Pellissaro of ESPN 1500 AM

The reactions of teammates on the sideline and in the locker room on Tuesdaysaid it all.

For the second time in 8½ months, Minnesota Vikings cornerback Cedric Griffin's season is over because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to multiple reports.

This time, the injury is to Griffin's right knee, which he injured on a play with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter of Monday's loss to the New York Jets.

Griffin, 27, had returned to game action only 15 days earlier in a game against the Detroit Lions after rehabbing the torn ACL in his left knee he suffered in the NFC championship game Jan. 24 at New Orleans.

The Vikings again are down to three healthy cornerbacks -- Antoine Winfield,Asher Allen and Lito Sheppard -- because rookie Chris Cook is recovering from a second minor knee surgery and probably will miss at least one more game.

Whenever Cook is healthy, he's the most likely candidate to take over the starting job at right cornerback. Allen started the Vikings' first two games there while Griffin and Cook were out and finished Monday's game there as well.
