Madieu Williams Injured
Madieu Williams could miss much as six weeks, because of a neck injury. With Williams being one of the BIG acquisitions that the Vikes made this past offseason. He was a vet to be opposite of Darren Sharper after the Vikes released Dwight Smith. The Vikes spend $33 million, six-year contract with nearly $13 million in guarantees last March. It is not released as of yet to what type of a neck injury that Willaims may have. In Fridays game, it was classified as neck spasms.
As of right now, rookie Tyrell Johnson, the Vikings' top pick in last April's draft, started in place of Williams on Friday and figures to move into that role.
