Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams was hit low by San Francisco 49ers reserve guard Joe Looney.

The injury, which most considered to come on a dirty hit, initially looked like it could threaten some or all of Williams’ season. Luckily for Williams and the Vikings, he walked off under his own power and the injury appears to be minor.

“Kevin Williams suffered a hyperextension injury to his right knee in last night’s football game,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said in a statement distributed by the team. “An MRI exam today revealed a significant bone contusion as well as a posterior capsular strain. Kevin was fortunate in that there was no injury to any of his ligaments.”

Severe injury or not, Williams was not happy about the hit.

“I was just upset that I’m getting cut 11 years in from a guy who I don’t even know,” Williams told via Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “I figure between the pain and the fact he cut me when I wasn’t looking was my reaction.”

Last season, the 33-year old Williams had 30 tackles and two sacks. In his 10 year career, he has 56.5 career sacks.
