Injury report: Ponder, Winfield listed as 'questionable'


The Vikings have listed quarterback Christian Ponder and cornerback Antoine Winfield as questionable for the NFC wild-card playoff game against the Packers.

Ponder was limited in practice this week because of a sore right elbow.

Winfield is on the list for his broken hand. He said Thursday he'll "definitely play" at Lambeau Saturday night wearing a harder cast to protect his hand.

The Star Tribune reports coach Leslie Frazier expected both players to be ready to play Saturday night.

Backup linebacker and special teams player Tyrone McKenzie is the only player ruled out for a shoulder injury.

The Packers will be as healthy as they've been since week one. The only player in doubt is running back James Starks.
