The Adventure Of The Winfield Foot

downey

So, I saw the trailer for the new Sherlock Holmes movie during Sunday’s broadcast.  It looks really good.  If I am not mistaken, the story follows Robert Downey Jr. as he has a series of misadventures in which he encounters violent situations, clever clues, and strange women.  I’m not sure, but I believe he endures all of this in an effort to figure out why the #@&% Antoine Winfield isn’t playing football.

Antoine Winfield once scoffed at the notion that he’d miss six weeks as ESPN had reported.  Six weeks and five games later, Winfield still hasn’t played.  Reports as to what exactly the injury was have varied, but it is known that it has something to do with his foot.

His foot could be sprained, fractured, or perhaps missing all together… nobody knows.

It is also possible that Winfield could have played one or more of the last few games but that the Vikings felt confident enough in beating their competition without Winfield that they decided to sit him and not risk further injury.

I do know, however, that if Winfield doesn’t play on Sunday against the high-powered Cardinals receivers then the theory above can be tossed in the trash can and that Winfield’s injury is much worse than we were originally lead to believe.

Check back this week for injury updates.

    CC I think that was the plan all along for Tony. Once again Freds was right. Hail Freds, Hail Freds, hail Freds
