Minnesota Vikings DT Kevin Williams said Sunday, Sept. 8, that he would be 'shocked' if he did not play in the Week 2 game against the Chicago Bears. DT Letroy Guion started in his absence in Week 1.
Huddle Up: The Vikings dearly missed Williams' presence in the middle of their defense, though fantasy owners of Reggie Bush and Joique Bell were happy to take advantage. Looks as though Matt Forte owners won't be as fortunate.

Minnesota Vikings DT Kevin Williams left the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 25, against the San Francisco 49ers due to a right knee injury. He is scheduled to have an MRI on the knee Monday, Aug. 26, but he doesn't believe the injury is serious.
Huddle Up: Williams took a low, cheap shot away from the play from 49ers' backup guard Joe Looney. And you wonder why veterans don't want to extend the preseason; they don't even want to play in the four games currently on the slate.

Minnesota Vikings DT Kevin Williams will become an unrestricted free agent next offseason because his restructured contract has voided the 2014 season in his original contract.
Huddle Up: The Vikings freed up cap space by tweaking Williams' contract, freeing him up a year early. He's on the backside of a solid NFL career, and a strong 2013 might buy him another couple years somewhere--even Minnesota, which at present has just one defensive lineman under contract beyond this season.
