News on Phat Pat
Surely everyone saw Pat Williams being carted off the field yesterday with a shoulder injury. Viking Nation found out today how badly injured the shoulder is. It is a fractured right shoulder that will put him out for at least 2-6 weeks. For right now Fred Evans will be starting in the place for Pat Williams at the nose tackle position, but Childress said the team could rotate several players in that spot, including fellow Pro Bowl tackle Kevin Williams.
The timing of the injury is not the best when the faceoff against the Falcons one of best running offense this year. We shall see if the Vikes will be able to march on the Phat Pat standing on the sideline.
