The Vikings family grieved along with former teammate Lewis Kelly two years ago when his wife and unborn son died suddenly. Two years later, the former Viking is filing suit against the hospital that treated her during the pregnancy.
Kelly filed suit Monday against Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park as well as its accompanying clinic for not diagnosing the blood disorder that resulted in his wife's death. No monetary claims were available to VU at the time of this writing.
Kelly was released last week by the Vikings.
* The Vikings won't have to worry about having too much water on the sidelines at training camp this week. Temperatures aren't expected to get above 70 degrees for the rest of the week in an unusual August cold snap.
* ESPN has identified the Vikings as a potential suitor for recently released Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter. While the Cowboys effectively gave up on their starter after two failed drug tests, the Vikings were singled out as a team that is considering bringing him in. VU hasn't been able to substantiate that claim, instead being told the team is satisfied with the current roster of quarterbacks they have now.
