Everson Griffen, who has been away from the Minnesota Vikings since Week 3 to deal with mental health issues after a series of incidents, will resume team activities Wednesday.

Griffen addressed his return post-practice, the first time he has publicly spoken about a series of alleged incidents that occurred on September 22, causing the Vikings and his family to become concerned over his well-being. He was scheduled to speak with reporters afterward.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Thursday no determination had been made yet on whether Griffen will play Sunday. But Zimmer's answer to supporting Griffen through this process is absolutely spot on. "I just want to get better with some of the decisions that I made and just improve on them", Griffen said.

Though Griffen's reintegration with the defense will be gradual, his welcome by the team was not.

It seems that Gruden has accepted that this year or next year won't be the best for the Raiders and he is embracing the rebuild. Two weeks ago, Derek Carr could be seen shedding tears in the final minutes of the loss in London against the Seahawks .

The veteran defender underwent an evaluation and received treatment at a mental health facility over the last month, and helped him realize his issues were more important than playing football.

"This is an illness", Zimmer said, "and he's done a good job of helping to get better and continues to try to get better".

"It felt great to see my guys, man", Griffen said after practice. You've got to appreciate the little things in life.

"We're just going to see how he comes back, " Zimmer said.

Griffen said there is a plan at some point to tell his full story but wouldn't say when he will.

"I'm just excited to get back with my team and get back to the grind of things, " he said. Connecting the dots here, it sounds like Griffen has some mental-health issues to work through and could be facing criminal charges.

"If you are, you know, you need to ask for help", Griffen said. "That's what it's all about, take care of yourself and take care of your actions and doing the right things".
