 Pioneer Press  Antoine Winfield expected to miss Sunday's game vs AZ with neck injury, according to person with direct knowledge 11 minutes ago Favorite Retweet Reply


Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowl cornerback Antoine Winfield is expected to miss Sunday's game against Arizona with a neck injury, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Winfield, who did not participate in Wednesday's practice, underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam Wednesday. The severity of the injury is unknown, but the Vikings plan to hold out Winfield based on his pain, the delicate nature of neck injuries and his importance to the team.

Playing him could be risky if there is structural damage.

Winfield has 35 tackles, one forced fumble and one interception this season. He hurt his neck on a gang tackle of Chiefs running back Dexter McCluster in Sunday's 22-17 loss at Kansas City.

Chris Cook likely will replace Winfield, who missed six games in 2009 with a broken foot. Asher Allen also is expected to take snaps.

The Vikings are 0looking to avoid going 0-5, which would tie their worst start, set in 1962.
