Kevin Williams is calling it a career with the team where it all began. The five-time All-Pro defensive tackle has signed a one-day contract so he can formally retire as a member of the Minnesota Vikings.
The Vikings are preparing for their regular season opener Sunday at Detroit at noon, pregame on WJON at 11am. Defensive tackle Kevin Williams is questionable to play due to an injury at San Francisco in the Vikings 3rd preseason game.
The Vikings will have to play the rest of the preseason and possibly beyond without defensive tackle Kevin Williams. Williams saw a foot specialist this week and revealed the severity of the injury Tuesday. Williams plans to rest for precautionary reasons. He may also be suspended for 2 games to begin the season for a violation of the NFL substance abuse policy for taking a banned diuretic (StarCaps) in 2008. Sources close to the NFL expect a decision to come down before season begins.
The Vikings are concerned about the right foot of defensive tackle Kevin Williams. Williams saw a foot specialist Monday and head coach Leslie Frazier will update the media today. The Vikings placed right guard Scott Kooistra on injured reserve ending his season because of a neck injury.
Viking defensive tackles Pat and Kevin Williams could now both be suspended by the NFL for 4 games for a violation of the league's substance abuse program. The Minnesota Supreme Court denied Kevin Williams' appeal.
A state appeals court won't permanetly block the NFL from suspending two Viking defensive lineman. Pat and Kevin Williams both tested positive for a banned substance in 2008 and have been fighting a 4-game suspension from the NFL since 2008.
