All things considered, it could have been much worse.
“Kevin Williams suffered a hyperextension injury to his right knee in last night’s football game,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said in a statement distributed by the team. “An MRI exam today revealed a significant bone contusion as well as a posterior capsular strain. Kevin was fortunate in that there was no injury to any of his ligaments.”
There was no word about a time frame for his return. Williams was upset by the hit, which he should have been, but he can now breathe a sign of relief.
