During the week, Antoine Winfield gave every indication that he intended returning to the playing field this afternoon against the Bears.
Either that was just a smokescreen, or the plan changed somewhere between then and now. Whatever the case, Winfield is listed among the Vikings’ inactives, meaning they will have to get by without him for yet another week.
As expected, Anthony Herrera is also out. Artis Hicks will start at right guard in his place.
