GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield is active and will start Monday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers.
Winfield hurt his neck against Kansas City on Oct. 2 and has been unable to play since then.
Right guard Anthony Herrera is inactive for the Vikings and will be replaced by Joe Berger.
Defensive end Mike Neal was inactive for the Packers. Neal, who missed the first eight games of the season because of a knee injury, returned to practice this week but coaches deemed him not yet ready to play.
Veteran left tackle Chad Clifton continues to sit out for the Packers because of a hamstring injury.
