After four games out, Winfield on track to return


The Vikings have played four straight games without one of their best defensive players.  Cornerback Antoine Winfield, who at 34 still can perform at a high level, has missed four straight games with a neck injury.

After the bye week, Winfield is back.

Listed as probable for Monday night’s game at Lambeau Field, Winfield fully participated in practice on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Also probable for the Vikings is tackle Phil Loadholt (illness).  Out are guard Anthony Herrera (knee) and cornerback Chris Cook, who is back with the team but not playing due to an arrest for domestic assault last month.

The 2-6 Vikings face the 8-0 Packers at Lambeau Field on Monday night.
