Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams was yet another knee injury casualty of the summer. He was the target of a low block from second-year backup guard Joe Looney.
“I was just upset that I’m getting cut 11 years in (the NFL) from a guy who I don’t even know,” Williams said, via the Minnesota Star Tribune. “I figure between the pain and the fact he cut me when I wasn’t looking was my reaction.”
The San Francisco 49ers running back LaMichael James was trying to running down field. He threatened to reverse the field and Williams was coming across the hashes when Looney blocked Williams.
“Kevin Williams is probably the one injury we’re concerned about,” coach Leslie Frazier said. “Other than that, whatever we had were bumps and bruises that should be fine in time. Kevin is the one we’ll take a look at [Monday].”
That might give rookie defensive tackle, and first round draft pick, Shariff Floyd an opportunity to start. Floyd is also recovering from a minor knee procedure he is expected to be ready for the regular season.
