Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield had hoped to play tonight against Kurt Warner and the Arizona Cardinals’ stellar group of wide receivers.
But Winfield, who was listed as questionable this week with a foot injury, won’t be playing against the Cardinals: He’s inactive for tonight’s game.
The Vikings’ other inactives are third quarterback Sage Rosenfels, wide receiver Jaymar Johnson, running back Albert Young, guard Anthony Herrera, outside linebacker Erin Henderson, defensive tackle Fred Evans and defensive end Jayme Mitchell.
Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe is active and will start. He had been listed as questionable and limited in practice this week with a rib injury.
As expected, Warner is active and will start a week after sitting out because of the lingering effects of a concussion.
The Cardinals’ inactives are third quarterback Brian St. Pierre, cornerback Greg Toler, linebacker Reggie Walker, linebacker Will Davis, guard Herman Johnson, tackle Mike Gandy, tight end Stephen Spach and wide receiver Jerheme Urban.
