The clock is ticking: Williams only Viking not to practice Thursday


Less than 72 hours until the Vikings kickoff the 2013 regular season against the Detroit Lions.

For defensive tackle Kevin Williams, it may not be enough time.

Williams was the only Viking not at practice today as he continues to rehab his injured right knee, an injury sustained when San Francisco offensive lineman Joe Looney hit him low.

The hit was deemed legal, despite the protests of his teammates.

Williams status remains questionable, and this could go right down to game time.

In the mean time, the Vikings have had a watchful eye on rookie DT Sharrif Floyd to see how much of a role he'll be able to play come Sunday.
