Pat Williams out vs. Eagles
MINNEAPOLIS -- Pro Bowl defensive tackle Pat Williams was inactive Sunday against Philadelphia, leaving Minnesota without its best run stopper for its first playoff game since 2004.
Williams practiced all week and was listed as questionable on Friday with a fractured shoulder. He tested it out on the field hours before the game and was ruled out. Fred Evans started in his place for the third straight game.
