CB Winfield Out for the Vikings Big Showdown Sunday in Green Bay


The Vikings have ruled out Antoine Winfield from Sunday’s game at Green Bay.

Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, Darius Reynaud, and Jasper Brinkley are all questionable.

Brett Favre, E.J. Henderson, Ben Leber, Karl Paymah, and Naufahu Tahi are all probable.

According to Access Vikings, Donald Driver thinks highly of Winfield and he had this to say about his absence:

“With [Winfield] it’s a big factor because he’s especially big in the run game. He loves to shoot up and hit the running back. He’s one of those guys that just loves to make tackles so you have to be willing to watch out for him a lot. I think little [Benny] Sapp, that’s why they’ve got him out there as well. He’s a little scrappy kid as well. I think he watches Winfield and imitates him a lot. That’s going to be the guy that’s going to try to support the run if Winfield doesn’t play. They’ve got some good corners. We’re not going to sit here and say their corners are bad. But we’ve got some good wideouts, too. We know it’s going to be a battle and we just have to go out there and execute.”
