Griffen reportedly called the authorities a little after 3 a.m., saying that someone was in his home and that he needed help from the police, the Minnetrista Public Safety Department said in a statement.

Griffen also told the dispatcher that he had fired a weapon, but nobody was injured. Police added that they were not able to find any intruders.

This comes after a disturbing Instagram post that Griffen made overnight, where he was filming himself with a gun, making statements that someone was after him. Due to the nature of the post, it has not been added to this story.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer shared in a press conference that the team is focused on Griffen’s safety at this point.

“I really can’t get into any of this stuff right now with this, so we’re only concerned about his well-being,” Zimmer said. “He’s been with us for a long time, good guy, works hard.”
