Antoine Winfield Injury Update: Cornerback Officially Out For Season

Monday night's trip to Green Bay was especially costly for the Minnesota Vikings. Cornerback Antoine Winfield came back after missing the last four games, but only made it through the first half before his season was over. Winfield suffered a broken clavicle in the 45-7 loss to the Packers, and is now done for the year:

He was injured in the second half of the 45-7 loss at Lambeau Field, where the Packers shredded the Vikings' secondary for four touchdown passes and quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 23 of his 30 passes.

To make matters worse, safety Husain Abdullah may also be lost for a significant amount of time. Abdullah suffered his second concussion of the season, and will likely be brought along slowly with only seven games left on the schedule.

The injury to Winfield casts his future in doubt, as the 34-year-old has two years and $14.25 million left on his contract at the end of this season.
