Wednesday Update from ESPN:

Minnesota Vikings:
Minnesota likely will be without two starters for Sunday's game against New Orleans, wide receiver Nate Burleson and linebacker E.J. Henderson.

Burleson, the Vikings' top receiver, sprained his left knee in last week's loss at Cincinnati, and he's listed as doubtful.

"Not too promising," coach Mike Tice said.

Henderson sprained his right ankle, and he's also doubtful after playing the entire second half with the injury against the Bengals.

The good news for Minnesota is that middle linebacker Sam Cowart should return from a strained left calf that kept him out against Cincinnati. Free safety Darren Sharper, who sprained his left knee against the Bengals, is also listed as probable, as is defensive end Kenechi Udeze (strained right calf).

I guess Dontarrioud gets his shot. Maybe we'll actually play Williamson this game.

I bet EJ plays, he's one tough son of gun, plus he's a beast, played good last weak, about the only one on defense besides pat williams. Good to see cowart back and sharper's ok.

We are in trouble if DT is starting,I still think he is lost out there.
I would love to see Eraser get some time if Udeze is hurt.

Yeah williamson needs to be on the field alot, just so the defense has someone to fear. Someone that can get down field. He did real nice last week with the two catches he made. Didn't look good as a punt returner but once he's in the open field after the catch he is dangerous.

Yup he's another guy that needs to get some playing time, especailly since our pass rush from our front four has been awful.
