Vikings CB Winfield skips practice to rest sprained right foot

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota VikingsPro Bowl cornerback Antoine Winfield didn't practice Wednesday because of a sprained right foot.

Vikings coach Brad Childress says Winfield will be evaluated throughout the week before a decision is made on his availability for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh. Winfield was injured during the second quarter against the Baltimore Ravens, and the Vikings' defense struggled mightily without him.

Running back Adrian Peterson was limited in practice by an ankle injury. Rookie wide receiver Percy Harvin was limited with a sore shoulder, as was safety Madieu Williams with sore quadriceps.

Rookie offensive tackle Phil Loadholt continues to be limited in practice with an ankle injury, but he says he feels good enough to play.
