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.
