The Minnesota Vikings have listed quarterback Christian Ponder and cornerback Antoine Winfield as questionable to play today during the team’s rematch against the Green Bay Packers, reports Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.
Quarterback Christian Ponder and cornerback Antoine Winfield have both been given the 50/50 designation by the team on Friday.
Ponder has been limited throughout the week due to sorenessin his throwing elbow. He sustained his injury last weekend against the Packers during a hit by safety Morgan Burnett. Vikings coach Leslie Frazier has said throughout the week that he expects Ponder to be healthy enough to play against Green Bay.
Winfield left the Vikings regular season finale after aggravating his broken right hand. This week he will suit up with a cast on his hand in an effort to play through the injury.
It appears that both players will be able to suit up for the game today, but it’s not clear how their injuries will impact their performance.
