Antoine Winfield fractured hand Sunday, will try to play this week

The Vikings have already said that running back Adrian Peterson will play through any abdominal problems this week and cornerback Antoine Winfield is also going to try to power through injury.

Winfield hurt his hand in Sunday’s victory over the Texans, but was able to finish the game before heading for an MRI on Monday. That test revealed a fracture, although it isn’t severe enough to knock Winfield out of the lineup. Coach Leslie Frazier said, via 1500ESPN.com, that Winfield would attempt to play while wearing a soft cast on the injured hand.

Winfield’s turned in a strong season for the Vikings and the Packers like to throw the ball, which would make his presence a big plus for Minnesota in Week 17.

A win against Green Bay would secure the Vikings a playoff spot, so it’s no surprise that it will be all hands on deck against the Packers. Even the fractured ones.

    One tough cookie. The NFL could use more role models and players like him.

    Ronnie Lott would have his hand cut off.

    Winfield must have shook Adrian Petersons hand after the game on Sunday.

    Good lord.

    Excuses being built up so that when the get destroyed they can say “if we were healthy…”

    Did he break his hand sacking Schaub? It’s the only thing that touched him. Never seen a QB go down so easy. Dependible player.

    Raise your hand if you thought the Vikings would be competing for a playoff berth in week 17 of the 2012 season.

    I really can’t wait for the Vikings to prove the naysayers wrong again and see guys like Tokyosandblaster eat their words.

    All I want for Christmas is an old fashioned Vikings smack down of the Packer!
    Go Vikings!

    How come Antiono Wingfield can play through a fractured hand but Nick Foles has to sit out?
