Kevin Williams eager to rejoin slumping Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Kevin Williams says he is excited about rejoining the Minnesota Vikings this week after missing the first two games because of a suspension.

He's a little less excited about playing the next two games for free.

Williams fought a long court battle over a positive test for a banned diuretic three years ago. The fight ended in the offseason, and the league decided to change his suspension from four games to two. But it also fined him two additional game checks. That means he will play against the Lions and Chiefs without getting paid.

Williams spoke to reporters Monday and said he was done challenging the league and just wanted to get back to playing football.
