We mentioned earlier today the possibility that more than a few of the 10 Vikings to qualify for the Pro Bowl won’t play due to injury, real or embellished.
The first one to go is cornerback Antoine Winfield, according to Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Winfield, who was added last week as an injury replacement, reinjured his right foot on Sunday. He’ll have an MRI this week.
Next up? We predict that quarterback Brett Favre, guard Steve Hutchinson, and defensive tackle Kevin Williams will bow out sooner rather than later.
