Chad Greenway might play despite broken hand


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway broke his hand during the Week 2 loss to the Patriots, but coach Mike Zimmer is hopeful Greenway will play Sunday at New Orleans, reports ESPN.com. Greenway has 10 tackles and a pass defensed in two games.

Chad Greenway dealing with wrist injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway has a "little wrist injury" and won't get a full practice workload Wednesday, coach Mike Zimmer told 1500ESPN.com. Greenway had 134 tackles, three interceptions and three sacks last year.

Chad Greenway could start at middle linebacker


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Chad Greenway is a realistic option to start at middle linebacker, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

" It's a possibility. We keep working him in there," Zimmer said. "We're just trying to find the best 11 players we can and then figure out where the rest of the guys are going to fit. It’s not out of the question, but time will tell a little bit more on that."

Zimmer was a strong-side linebacker last season for the Vikings.


Anthony Barr not quite a Fantasy rookie stud


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) Anthony Barr is listed as a linebacker by the Vikings, a move that, for now, keeps his Fantasy value a little low. Of course, this might have been the case even if he were listed as a defensive end because Barr doesn't come into the NFL with a long track record of success.

Barr, a former running back, is powerful, athletic and fast but has just two years of work on defense at UCLA. The numbers are great -- he totaled 152 tackles and 23.5 sacks in two seasons -- and the coaching staff he'll work with is also great. But for Fantasy purposes he could lag statistically because of his likely role as a strong-side linebacker.

Unless the Vikings rid themselves of Chad Greenway, there's a chance Barr will underwhelm. We'd take him late in seasonal and long-term Fantasy leagues and with a third- or fourth-round pick in rookie-only drafts. 


Chad Greenway takes pay cut to stay with Vikings


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chad Greenway playing with fractured wrist


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway is proving to be one tough football player. Greenway briefly left Sunday's game against the Bears with a right wrist injury, which he revealed after the game that he's been playing with a fracture in the wrist since October.

Greenway initially sprained his wrist Oct. 21 against the Giants and fractured it six days later against the Packers. He has been able to play through the injury, but he admitted it has been tough tackling at times.

"It's been difficult with my grip, especially, in my right hand," he said, per ESPN. "We tape the heck out of it."

Greenway did record a team-high 10 tackles (six solo) and one sack Sunday. It's been just his second double-digit tackle game since Oct. 21. Still, Greenway surpassed 100-plus tackles for the fourth straight season Sunday.

"This organization has been far too good to the Greenways for me to [sit out this year]," he said. "These guys around this locker room, as trying as this season has been, I love these guys and it hasn't been easy, but we stay together."
