DT Sharrif Floyd is awaiting resolution of a grievance he filed against the Vikings in September.
Battling a lingering, and likely career-ending, knee injury, Floyd spent 2017 on the reserve/NFI list. That got the Vikings out of paying his entire $6.757 million salary. Teams can pay "an amount of their choosing" to players on the NFI list. The Vikes settled on $2.006 million. Floyd contends he should have been on the PUP list instead of NFI, and entitled to his full salary. Feb 20 - 6:46 PM

Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee, NFI) is unlikely to play again.

Floyd has nerve damage in his knee as a result of surgery in September of last year. It's a devastating blow, and as of the summer Floyd was still unable to run. He's been hanging out on the reserve/NFI list all season and hasn't been seen by Vikings reporters. The former first-round pick is just 26 and can be a free agent in March. He's barely played since the 2015 season.

Vikings placed DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) on the reserve/NFI list.

It means he will miss at least the first six games, but he really is out indefinitely with what is reportedly a career-threatening nerve issue. OT T.J. Clemmings, DT Will Sutton, and OG Willie Beavers were also among the Vikings' final cuts.

Vikings placed DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) on the active/NFI list.

It is not a surprise after Floyd missed the entire offseason program with what is reportedly a career-threatening nerve issue, although he expects to return at some point. Still, it remains likely Floyd moves to the reserve/NFI at the start of the season, which will cost him at least the first six games.

Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) is expected to open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Floyd missed the entire offseason with a career-threatening nerve issue. He's hoping to return at some point, but remains without a timetable. Anything the Vikings get from Floyd should be viewed as a bonus.

Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) remains unable to run at OTAs.

Floyd is optimistic he'll be able to play at some point in 2017, but nobody is certain it will actually happen. He continues to battle a nerve issue in his quad that isn't allowing the muscle to "fire" properly. The former first-round pick turned 26 last weekend and is being viewed as a total luxury.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he's "optimistic" DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) will play this year but admitted, "I really don't know."

Floyd is still dealing with nerve trouble stemming from last year's meniscus surgery. Multiple reports have suggested his playing career could be in jeopardy. With Floyd still in limbo, the Vikings added some insurance by drafting Iowa DT Jaleel Johnson with the No. 109 overall pick on Saturday.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd's career is in jeopardy due to complications from his 2016 knee operation.

Per Pelissero, the nerve that controls Floyd's quad was "disrupted" during the September procedure to repair his meniscus. The quad "still isn't firing." Floyd's agent declined comment on Pelissero's report, but offered the following statement: "Sharrif is rehabbing, has seen some of the best doctors in the country, will continue to rehab and hopefully, this will heal sooner than later." The issue limited Floyd to one game last season as a 5-6 week timeline got longer and longer. The 2013 first-rounder turns 26 in May.

Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd's $6.757 million salary for 2017 became guaranteed on Thursday.

It's the value of his fifth-year team option the club exercised last offseason. Floyd ended up missing the final 15 games of last season after knee issues from the previous season required surgery. GM Rick Spielman refused to commit to Floyd back in February, but this essentially locks him in for 2017. Floyd was strong against the run and a plus pass rusher from the inside in 2014 and 2015.

Vikings GM Rick Spielman wouldn't commit to DT Sharrif Floyd returning in 2017.

"He is under contract for the Minnesota Vikings next year," Spielman dodged. "We did miss Sharrif because when he is healthy he’s a significant part of our defense and can make a difference in games when he’s in there." Health is the sticking point as Floyd missed all but one game last year to a clean-up knee procedure. He's the Vikings' best interior lineman behind Linval Joseph, but those health concerns have his status up in the air. Minnesota has until March 9 to pick up Floyd's $6M option.
Fri, Feb 24, 2017 05:25:00 PM

When asked about DT Sharrif Floyd's 2017 status, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, "We'll see."

"Sharrif is under contract and I know [GM Rick Spielman] is in charge with all that," Zimmer said. "So, we'll see where it goes." Floyd played 25 snaps in Week 1 but missed the rest of the season after undergoing a "clean-up" procedure on his knee. The former No. 23 overall pick has missed 20 games through four seasons. His $6.757 million salary isn't guaranteed until March.
Wed, Jan 4, 2017 09:52:00 AM

Vikings placed DT Sharrif Floyd (knee surgery) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Floyd's lone 2016 appearance came in Week 1. He underwent a "clean-up" operation in September, and began a waiting game that never ended. The 2013 first-rounder has been dealing with knee issues since last offseason. Headed into the final year of his rookie deal, it's not an ideal time to have a lost season. Floyd has been inconsistent, but still only 25, has lots of upside. As long as his health cooperates, he'll be a bounce-back candidate in a 2017 contract year.
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 02:21:00 PM

Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee scope) is expected to miss 5-6 weeks.

The absence is lengthy enough that Floyd might become a candidate for I.R., and eventually I.R.-return. The Vikings will continue to use more of Shamar Stephen in Floyd's absence. Stephen has been terrific against the run.
Sun, Sep 25, 2016 08:04:00 AM

Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd underwent a "clean-up" operation on his left knee Thursday, and is without a date for a return.

Floyd is week to week, but that was already the case before he went under the knife. He'll miss at least the next two games, and probably more. Floyd has barely practiced since August 5. Floyd is a big loss, but the Vikings' defense has remained stout without him. Floyd missed three games last season and two in 2014.
Thu, Sep 22, 2016 03:47:00 PM

The Vikings have ruled out DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) and CB Xavier Rhodes (knee) for Week 2 versus Green Bay.

Asked whether he was surprised Floyd is missing time again on Friday, coach Mike Zimmer replied "I'm kind of used to it." Floyd and Rhodes' absences are a big blow to Minnesota's pass defense ahead of Sunday's clash with Aaron Rodgers.
