The NFL Trancation report announced today...
Pat Williams (DT) suspended (2 games (nfl substance abuse policy)).
Kevin Williams (DT) suspended (2 games (nfl substance abuse policy)).
Pat Williams left the Vikings so we do not have to worry about him in this, but now it appears that Kevin Williams will be back from his suspension in time to play the Lions. This represents a softening of the previously discussed suspension of 4 games for the role of Williams in the Starcaps controversy and the subsequent legal battles. While the presence of Williams will help the Vikings, I do not feel it is enough to keep the Lions from taking them behind the woodshed in the third game of the season.
