The Minnesota Vikings have a long tradition of having very good defensive tackles. They drafted Sharrif Floyd in the first round of the 2013 draft in hopes that he can continue the trend. He learned a lot of from former teammate Kevin Williams and slimmed down in the offseason to reach his full potential. This season should be the beginning of the Floyd era in Minnesota.
Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams has been ruled out for the season opener Sunday against Detroit.
The Lions’ offense will have two significant issues to deal with Sunday at Minnesota.
