There are few cornerbacks more valuable than Antoine Winfield, which is why the Vikings were nervous about the results of his MRI taken after he injured his foot Monday. (It’s believed Winfield’s toe is specifically what’s injured.)
The initial results don’t sound too bad: coach Brad Childress says Winfield has a “sprained foot” and the team isn’t going to rule him out of this week’s game “at this point.” Minnesota’s secondary didn’t look the same in the second half when Winfield was out; they head to Pittsburgh this week.
Childress also said that he isn’t any more worried about rookie Percy Harvin’s shoulder injury this week than he was a week ago. Harvin aggravated the problem against the Ravens.
Adrian Peterson missed some snaps in the second half against Baltimore, but is just suffering from “overall body soreness.”
