Vikings not concerned about Edwards injury

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (KWWL) - The Minnesota Vikings will watch defensive end Ray Edwards closely this week.

Edwards was injured in the third quarter of Sunday's playoff victory over Dallas, appearing to hurt his right knee. He returned for a few plays, then was done for the day with the Vikings in command of the game.

Minnesota travels to New Orleans this weekend for the NFC championship game.

Coach Brad Childress declined to elaborate on the injury. Childress said Monday that Edwards is "a tough guy" and if he's able to he'll play against the Saints. Edwards was receiving treatment on Monday. He said after the game he should be fine.

Edwards had three sacks and six quarterback hurries against the Cowboys.
