Several South Dakota farmers are banding together to help bale hay for Alan Greenway. Greenway, who is the father of Vikings Pro Bowl linebacker Chad Greenway, was battling cancer according to a family friend. He says as the weather cooperates, farmers will be working through the night to get through about 300 acres.
Chad has been absent from Vikings' voluntary organized team activities the past three weeks. He was scheduled to attend HyVee/Sanford Legends events this week but Legends officials aren't expecting him to show while he deals with the family matter.
Vikings' head coach Leslie Frazier told Minneapolis media this week he doesn't know if Greenway will be back for mandatory minicamp next week.
