EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Everson Griffen has reportedly left his home and is now receiving care after the Minnesota Vikings sent psychologists to the defensive end's home Wednesday.

They've been working with police on guiding Griffen through another alarming mental health situation.

The 12th-year player has been refusing to come out of his house, according to police.

"Our only concern at this time is the safety and well-being of Everson and his family," the team said in a statement on Twitter.

"That's my brother. I just want him to be okay," running back Dalvin Cook said during a press conference.

Griffen took a leave from the team in 2018 for mental health treatment.

He posted on his Instagram account early Wednesday that people were trying to kill him.

Police were unable to locate an intruder.
