Vikings’ Ponder Has Sore Elbow
Viking quarterback Christian Ponder was limited in practice Wednesday due to a sore elbow. He sustained the injury when he hit the helmet of a Packer player on his follow through. He stayed in the game and is expected to play Saturday at Green Bay.
Cornerback Antoine Winfield missed his 2nd straight day of practice Wednesday with a broken right hand. He is still hoping to play in some capacity against Green Bay. Adrian Peterson (groin) and safety Harrison Smith (shoulder) are both expected to play despite missing practice time this week.
The Vikings will play at Green Bay in the wildcard round of the playoffs Saturday night at 7pm, pregame on WJON at 6:00.
