The Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowl cornerback Antoine Winfield’s status is uncertain for Sunday’s game against the Steelers at Pittsburgh, after skipping the team’s Wednesday practice with a sprained right foot.
Winfield hurt his foot in the second quarter against the Baltimore Ravens and the injury caused the Vikings defense to struggle mightily without him. According to Coach Brad Childress, Winfield will be evaluated throughout the week before a decision is made on his availability for this Sunday’s game.
Other injured players wearing Vikings jerseys include running back Adrian Peterson with ankle injury, wide receiver Percy Harvin with sore shoulder, safety Madieu Williams with sore quadriceps, and tackle Phil Loadholt with ankle injury. All the four were limited in practice on Wednesday.
