New York Times story about a Minnesota Viking who observes Ramadan even while playing pro football

From www.nytimes.com

A New York Times feature on Minnesota Vikings defensive back Husain Abdullah. Abdullah is Muslim and observes Ramadan, which involves fasting from sun-up to sun down. Here’s a bit of the story:

“For Minnesota Vikings defensive back Husain Abdullah, the most important clock inside the Metrodome was not the one keeping time for his team’s recent preseason game with the Seattle Seahawks. Another, showing the time of day, held greater significance for him and for the Vikings’ training staff.

Abdullah, a third-year safety, is a Muslim who keeps the traditional fast during the holy month of Ramadan; he cannot eat or drink from sunup to sundown.”
