Vikings DTs keep focus on football

The Williams Wall — Vikings DTs Pat Williams and Kevin Williams — is still waiting for closure on a pending four-game suspension from the league. But instead of dwelling on “what if,” the pair is focused on getting ready for the 2009 NFL season.

The NFL wants the suspensions, originally handed out last season, to start with Minnesota’s opener on Sept. 13, but the league would rather the federal appeals be resolved first before further proceedings at the state level to avoid conflicting rulings.

The players’ attorney is pushing for a trial before the regular season begins on Sept. 13; if that’s not possible, they want it delayed again until the season is over.
