EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota defensive end Ray Edwards will miss Sunday's playoff game against Philadelphia with a knee injury, but the Vikings hope Pro Bowl defensive tackle Pat Williams will return after missing two games with a fractured shoulder.

Coach Brad Childress said he saw good progress from Williams all week in practice. He is listed as questionable and Childress said he will be a game-time decision.

Williams said he "feels good" and sees his ability to lift weights as a good sign. He isn't concerned about further injury.

"If you get hurt, you get hurt," he said.

Right tackle Artis Hicks and wide receiver Bernard Berrian are listed as probable with minor injuries.
