The Pro Bowl rosters are announced Tuesday night, and there’s a chance Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield will make the squad because of some overzealous fan voting.
But Winfield has played like anything but a Pro Bowler the last two weeks, burned repeatedly by the Panthers and Bears.
Never a speedster to begin with, Winfield appears to be struggling with the foot injury that kept him out six straight games.
don’t think it will be 100 percent until the offseason when I can rest
it, but I’m going to keep fighting,” Winfield said on KFAN today, according to Rick Alonzo of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Winfield admitted that he suffered a setback in Minnesota’s win against the Bengals.
With that in mind, expect a lot more offenses to try to expose Winfield in man-to-man coverage like the Bears did Monday.
