Through the early portions of the Minnesota Vikings' Organized Team Activities, linebacker Chad Greenway has been away from the workouts with what had been termed as a "family issue." 1500 ESPN in the Twin Cities has now given us more of an idea of exactly what that issue is.
The father of Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowl linebacker Chad Greenway is battling cancer and is getting hospice care, according to KELO Television in Sioux Falls, S.D. KELO reported the information came from a family friend.
"I talked with him a few days ago and I don't know if we'll have him back for mandatory minicamp," Frazier said. "His family situation is something he's dealing with so we may or may not have him back for that but it's understandable, what he's experiencing."
I'm not sure if anyone was terribly worried about Chad Greenway's absence during these OTAs in any case, but if he isn't there, I suddenly don't think anyone is going to be too concerned about it.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Greenway family in their time of need.
