Speaking with reporters at Winter Park on Monday, Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress was asked about the status of several of his injured players.
Of primary concern is CB Antoine Winfield, who was forced out of Sunday’s game against the Ravens and did not return because of a foot injury. Childress said Winfield was in the facility treating the injury and that the CB has a sprained foot.
“People heal so differently, it’s hard to know,” Childress said when asked about a timetable for Winfield’s return. “I would’ve thought (Phil) Loadholt’s injury would’ve held him out longer than it held him out. Guys have different recuperative skills and I’m not going to rule him in or rule him out at this point.”
Childress was also asked about WR Percy Harvin, who re-aggravated his shoulder injury on Sunday, and RB Adrian Peterson, who twisted his ankle late in the game. He said his level of concern regarding Harvin was no higher this week than it was last week at this time and he also said Peterson his experiencing “overall body soreness.”
