Pat Williams may have a busted-up shoulder but the Pro Bowl defensive tackle still intends on participating in the playoffs provided the Vikings make it there. “That’s my plan,” Williams said when asked if he would try returning for the post-season. Williams broke his scapula in Sunday’s game against Arizona when he was run over by teammate Chad Greenway in a moment of misfortune and is expected to require 2-6 weeks to recover.
The always-upbeat Fat Pat confessed to being disappointed when he learned that he wouldn’t be able to go this weekend against the Falcons and their Pro-Bowl running back Michael Turner. “Basically, I was looking forward to this game all year because they were playing good and they were talking about Michael Turner,” Pat said. “I was looking forward to going out and smashing them.” That’s why we love Big Pat. He’s all about smashin’ folk. And eating.
