An MRI shows Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield suffered a small hand fracture during the upset victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday, the Pioneer Press reports. Winfield will wear a soft cast when the Vikings face the Green Bay Packers at the Metrodome on Sunday, Dec. 30.

"We don't expect it to be a problem in this ball game," coach Leslie Frazier said on Monday. "He'll have it wrapped up, but he'll be able to play, just like he finished the game yesterday."
