The Vikings added Ponder to the injury list Wednesday after an issue arose with his throwing elbow, ESPN Twin Cities reported. Frazier didn't seem too concerned about Ponder's availability for Saturday night's NFC Wild Card Game against the Green Bay Packers.
Ponder will have to be seriously injured to not play Saturday.
Winfield wore a pad on his hand during Sunday's regular-season finale, but he couldn't finish because it swelled up and was causing him too much pain. He has sat out all three practices this week, but he did some individual work Thursday to test how the hand would respond with a bigger soft cast.
"Just to see him move around a little bit with that cast, he was actually over there hitting the dummies and doing some things to jar, just to see how it would feel, and he said it felt great," Frazier said. "That was encouraging, very encouraging."
