Chad Greenway, LB for the Minnesota Vikings, was seen on the sidelines for a bit during Sunday’s win against the Chicago Bears because of his wrist. He’s been nursing an injury, and a pretty serious one at that.
Greenway has been playing football with a fractured wrist. For over a whole month now. From ESPN’s Ben Goessling,
Greenway initially sprained his wrist on Oct. 21 against the New York Giants and fractured it six days later against the Green Bay Packers. He has been able to play through the injury, but has had trouble tackling because of it, he said.
“It’s been difficult with my grip, especially, in my right hand,” he said, adding the wrist is “fractured in a couple spots.
“We tape the heck out of it,” he said.
His loyalty to his team is unparalleled. He wants to continue playing for the remainder of the season with the Vikings, through good times and bad.
“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.”
Well said Chad, well said.
