Vikings reinstate special teams coach Mike Priefer

The Minnesota Vikings have reinstated special teams coordinator Mike Priefer after he served a two-game suspension for making homophobic remarks.

Priefer was initially suspended three games.

It was reduced to two games after Priefer completed sensitivity training.

Priefer has completed "anti-harassment, diversity and sexual orientation training and was fully and thoughtfully engaged throughout the process and successsfully completed the program," according to the Vikings.

Now, he's back at work today.

Priefer was suspended after former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe accused Priefer of making homophobic remarks after Kluwe started advocating for gay marriage.
