Tank Williams Update

According to Sean Jensen of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press, the injury Tank Williams suffered in practice the other day will, in fact, keep him out for the entire season.

S Tank Williams has a broken left kneecap that sideline him for the season, coach Brad Childress said.

"I feel terrible for Tank," said Childress, who praised the veteran about his approach to the season.

Childress said Williams embraced the signing of S Dwight Smith, so long as he had a chance to compete for a starting spot.

Childress declined comment when asked if the team would add another safety.

Behind Smith and Darren Sharper are Willie Offord, rookie Greg Blue and Will Hunter.


I feel bad for Tank. . .he only signed a one-year deal with Minnesota, most likely in the hopes that he could prove himself this year and get the big pay day in '07.  Now he's not going to get that chance.

As mentioned in the previous post, this also hurts our secondary. . .although we've got a lot more depth there than we have in past years, so it's not nearly as painful for the Vikes as it could be.
