Practice update

Vikings coach Brad Childress gave Pat Williams a second consecutive day off, but he is still hopeful that his Pro Bowl defensive tackle will play in the season finale Sunday.

Williams indicated on Wednesday that he would be fine to play on Sunday. Interestingly, in addition to the knee, his elbow was added to the injury report Thursday.

"Give him some time," Childress said of Williams. "He’s got multiple nicks and knacks, from playing on the defensive line, and he doesn’t need to be out here on his feet. He can do more inside (in the training room)."

LB Vinny Ciurciu also did not practice, with an ankle sprain, and WR Bobby Wade was given the day off. Despite multiple minor injuries, Wade hasn't missed a game this season.

Meanwhile, Childress declined to talk about Darrion Scott's marijuana citation in West Virginia, where he is from. Home for the Christmas break, Scott received a misdemeanor for possessing marijuana in his car.

Asked if he was disappointed, Childress said, "I wouldn’t characterize it any way, until I get a chance to speak to him."
