Sharrif Floyd to see first NFL action early?

The Minnesota Vikings finished in the top 5 last year in sacks recorded (44.0) with a defensive line anchored by Jared Allen. The unit should experience a similar rate of success this season as Allen and other key pieces like Brian Robison, Everson Griffen, and Letroy Guion return. Defensive tackle Kevin Williams is also part of the group but he might miss the team's first game against the Detroit Lions with a hyperextended right knee. Williams was placed on today's injury report and did not practice for the second time this week.
