Those of you watching CBS’s coverage of Sunday’s thrilling back-and-forth Arena League-style contest between the Vikings and the Ravens might have wondered why in the hell no one bothered to mention that Minnesota cornerback Antoine Winfield left the game in the first half and didn’t return.
Winfield’s replacement, Karl Paymah (rent), helped various Ravens receivers pay their own rent as he was burned throughout the day.
Winfield suffered a foot injury, per the Associated Press. We’re told that an MRI is coming on Monday, and that the Vikings are nervous about the outcome.
As they should be, given the play of Karl Paymah.
If Winfield’s injury is serious, they need to get on the horn and swing a trade for a replacement.
UPDATE: We’re told that the specific area of Winfield’s foot that is injured is his toe.
