Things have been going well for the Vikings this year. Their key players on offense — quarterback Brett Favre and running back Adrian Peterson — have missed no time due to injury.
That might change on Sunday against the Bears.
Peterson is questionable, due both to an ankle problem and an illness. Peterson missed practice on Friday due to the illness. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday due to the ankle injury.
The good news for the Vikings is that cornerback Antoine Winfield is questionable with a foot sprain that has kept him out of action for more than a month. Winfield suffered the injury on October 18, against the Ravens.
