Vikings LB Chad Greenway Dealing With A Broken Hand

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer announced that veteran LB Chad Greenway sustained a broken hand during Week 2’s loss to the Patriots, per Tom Pelissero.

  • Zimmer adds that he’s hoping Greenway will be able to play, despite the injury.

There was talk during training camp that Greenway could be on the chopping block, he wound up making the final 53-man roster.

Earlier in the offseason, Greenway agreed to reduce his 2014 salary from $6.5 million to $5.5 million in order remain with the team.

It’s worth mentioning that Greenway was playing with broken bone in his wrist, which could explain his poor tackling from last season.

Greenway, 31, has two years remaining on his five-year, $40.6 million contract that incleded $20 million guaranteed. The most significant figure regarding Greenway is most likely his $8.8 million cap figure for the 2015 season.

So far this season, Greenway has registered 10 tackles and a pass defense over the first two games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 14 outside linebacker in a 4-3 defense this season, which is towards the middle of the pack.
