Vikings, Bears Issue Final Injury Reports

Posted Sep 13, 2013


Head Coach Leslie Frazier confirmed on Friday that DT Kevin Williams, who injured his knee in the week three preseason game vs. the 49ers and missed last week’s contest in Detroit, will return to the lineup this Sunday in Chicago despite Williams missing Friday’s practice due to a personal reason.

“He [Williams] should be ready to go come Sunday,” Frazier said.

All other players participated in Friday morning’s practice for the Vikings. 

Williams, along with LB Larry Dean (shoulder), LB Erin Henderson (heel), T Phil Loadholt (knee), S Mistral Raymond (shoulder), CB Josh Robinson (quadriceps), S Jamarca Sanford (shoulder), and C John Sullivan (knee) are all listed as probably for Sunday's game.

For Chicago, they had just two players listed on their injury report, and both are probable for Sunday. DE Julius Peppers did not practice on Thursday and was limited on Friday due to an illness.  CB Charles Tillman was limited in practice on Wednesday, didn’t participate on Thursday, but was full-go on Friday.
