Only a court injunction can stop Darnell Dockett's streak of 61 consecutive regular-season starts from becoming the longest among active NFL defensive tackles.

The Vikings' Pat Williams holds the streak at 70 games, but a four-game suspension could intervene as early as Sunday. Williams was back at practice Thursday, so perhaps the streak will live for a while.

The top four streaks at the position: Williams 70, Dockett 61, Chris Hovan 60 and Kevin Williams 47. The last time Pat Williams missed a start was Week 7 of the 2004 season.
