| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield will not play in the Pro Bowl next week, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Winfield re-injured his right foot late in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship game. The injury is believed to have occurred on the second to last play of the game, when he tackled receiver Robert Meacham after a 12-yard gain.

Winfield is a two-time Pro Bowl selection.

How long Winfield will be out is uncertain. But the Vikings have gotten terrible news at the position, with the other starter, Cedric Griffin, believed to have suffered a torn ACL.
