Defensive Injuries Piling Up For Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have playoff aspirations this season but are suffering an early string of defensive injuries.

The latest bad news for the club is that safety Madieu Williams reportedly will miss the early stages of the regular season because of a neck injury. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Williams will be sidelined for as long as six weeks.

Williams signed with the Vikings in the offseason as a free agent and was expected to improve the team's pass coverage.

The Vikings already had lost defensive end Jayme Mitchell and linebacker Heath Farwell, both backups, to season-ending knee injuries.
