Monday morning Tyrell Johnson was arrested for DWI and spent a couple of hours in jail. On Wednesday the safety apologized for the incident saying, “I’m very blessed and fortunate that no one got hurt because of my mistake and selfishness.”
Vikings coach Leslie Frazier had little to say about Tyrell’s misbehavior, stating only that the Vikings would handle the matter “internally,” and announcing that Johnson will indeed play on Sunday against the Lions.
So that’s that. Johnson will not be cut as many guessed. We’ll wait to see what discipline the league imposes on Johnson down the road.
