The Vikings made a pair of roster moves on Wednesday as they prepare to face the Oakland Raiders at Mall of America Field this Sunday.
CB Antoine Winfield has been placed on the Reserve/Injured list after fracturing his clavicle in Monday night’s game. Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier said Winfield will undergo surgery on Wednesday.
To fill the open roster spot, the Vikings signed CB Benny Sapp. Prior to the 2010 season, the Vikings traded Sapp to the Miami Dolphins for WR Greg Camarillo in a move that improved each team’s depth at a position of need. Sapp, 5-10, 190 pounds, is an 8-year veteran out of Northern Iowa and knows Frazier’s defensive system well.
