Pat Williams out 2-6 weeks

December 15th, 2008 – 2:37 PM by Judd Zulgad

The word on Pat Williams is not good for the Vikings.

The Pro Bowl nose tackle has a broken right scapula. Coach Brad Childress said that means Williams will be out from two to six weeks.

The scapula connects the arm bone (humerus) with the collarbone (clavicle), according to extensive internet research.

Williams suffered the injury in the third quarter of yesterday’s win at Arizona. He was playing under a court order that delayed the NFL’s four-game suspension, but now it appears he will at least miss the final two games of the regular season.

Player access is next, we’ll have more later.
