The Minnesota Vikings say defensive end Everson Griffen is getting the care he needs after a scary incident at his house.

Griffen posted a series of disturbing messages on his Instagram, including a video of him holding a gun claiming someone was trying to kill him in his home. He also put several messages on Instagram overnight saying the same thing.

Police responded to the incident at Griffen's Lake Minnetonka home, where they were unable to find an intruder. They, along with Viking psychologists, negotiated with Griffen until he voluntarily left his home.

Bison football coach Matt Entz earned more hardware on Wednesday, taking home the Missouri Valley Football Conference Coach of the Year. It's the second time Entz has been awarded the honor, also winning it in 2019.
