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 also signed free agent running back Caleb King of Georgia Tuesday.  King was not drafted in the supplemental draft Monday.  He was pursued by 10-15 NFL teams.  He ran for 430 yards and 2 touchdowns last season at Georgia.  The Vikings released offensive lineman Rod Huntley to make room for King.

Former Viking Offensive Lineman Bryant McKinnie signed a 2-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
