    Vikings WR Williamson briefly knocked out

    Vikings WR Williamson briefly knocked out

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    SEATTLE -- Minnesota starting wide receiver Troy Williamson is expected to play next week despite leaving Sunday's 31-13 win over Seattle in the first quarter with a concussion that briefly left him unconscious.

    A leaping Williamson was hit in the chest with two hands by Ken Hamlin and spun around while trying to catch a long pass from Brad Johnson on the Vikings' second drive. Williamson's head banged off the turf as he landed. He was face down on the ground for a moment while trainers rushed onto the field.

    A few minutes later, Williamson jogged to the sideline with his helmet off.

    "It just took me a minute to get myself back," Williamson said after the game. "I came out of the game and my head was hurting, so they didn't want to put me back out there and get hit again.

    "I was out for like 10 seconds maybe - at least that's what they told me - and then that was that."

    Vikings coach Brad Childress said he expects Williamson to play in next Sunday night's home game against New England.

    "He does know what time zone we're in right now, and he can read a clock. So he's going to be OK," Childress said.

    The second-year veteran was Minnesota's leading receiver with 18 catches for 256 yards through five games.

    Thats what I was telling my friends, they were all saying how they thought he hurt his shoulder, but I noticed the way he was lying down looked like he just went limp.

    It reminded me of the way dudes get knocked out in the UFC.
