One worry the Vikings don't have: Williams' knee, other inuries


For all the coulda-shoulda-woulda that came out of the Vikings's 31-30 loss in Chicago Friday, there was one glimmer of good new: The team is relatively injury free.

Coach Leslie Frazier said after Sunday's game that center John Sullivan was a little banged up, but, hey, that's football.

And Kevin Williams played almost 50 snaps at defensive tackle, propping up a defensive line that missed him terribly as he sat out last week with an injured knee.

“My knee was fine,” Williams tells the Pioneer Press. “There were a lot of unknowns, ... But it held up.”

It was announced that Williams would play, but nothing tells the tale like a little game time.

Williams had a tackle and an interception of a ball that was tipped twice in the Chicago end zone.

The 33-year-old said he had felt great earlier in the week, he said, and was ready to play.

The staffed monitored his playing time: "They didn't want to overdo it."
