EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Pat Williams is impatient. He's planning to do everything in his power to be ready for this Sunday's playoff game against Philadelphia.
"We'll just have to see what his functional strength is like as he gets out there and goes through the week," Childress said.
Watching that drove Williams crazy, too.
"Last week I about busted my TV," he said after the game. "This week, I about pulled my hair out on the sideline. ... They need me, because in the playoffs if you can't run the ball you can't win."
The Vikings allowed the fewest yards rushing in the NFL for the third straight season. Until his injury, Williams had played in 110 consecutive games.
"I'm confident I'm coming back," he said. "I'm going to rehab twice every day."
Defensive end Ray Edwards hurt his left knee against the Giants, but Childress had no update on his condition.
