The Minnesota Vikings are coming off of a difficult loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football, but the team is putting that behind them as they gear up to host the Oakland Raiders this weekend. Wednesday's injury report revealed that the Vikings will have a few more injuries to deal with this week than they did last week.
The biggest injury is actually Antoine Winfield, but since the team has decided to put him on the injury reserve, the veteran cornerback will not show up on the injury report. In lieu of Winfield not being on the report, the Vikings were missing starters Anthony Herrera and Erin Henderson on Wednesday.
Herrera has been out for a couple of weeks as he continues to deal with a knee injury, but Henderson's injury is new for the Vikings. Henderson played in Monday night's loss, though he recorded just one tackle.
