Another Williams Wall ruling Friday

In the interest of planning out your Friday mid-morning coffee break, I just wanted to make sure everyone is on the same page regarding the next installment of the Williams Wall legal case.

At 11 a.m. ET Friday morning, Hennepin County (Minn.) Judge Gary Larson is scheduled to issue a key ruling. In essence, it will determine whether Minnesota Vikings defensive tackles Kevin Williams and Pat Williams can play while they appeal their recent legal defeat.

If Larson denies the injunction request, the players will need to win their appeal before the start of the regular season. Otherwise, their four-game suspensions will begin the first full week of September.

Let's gather here Friday to hash it all out. I take lots of milk and no sugar.
