Cornerback Antoine Winfield will miss his fourth straight game with a foot injury. He is inactive Sunday against the Seahawks and CB Benny Sapp will start in Winfield's spot.
Winfield was limited in practice all week and looked to be making progress – Brad Childress even said he made good strides from Wednesday to Thursday – but he was listed as doubtful. Winfield was on the field before the game warming up and appeared to be moving around well.
Also inactive for the Vikings are Sage Rosenfels (third QB), WR Jaymar Johnson, CB Antoine Winfield, RB Albert Young, LB Erin Henderson, C Jon Cooper, DT Fred Evans and DE Jayme Mitchell. Evans was sick on Wednesday but didn't appear on Friday's injury report.
CB Karl Paymah and WR Bernard Berrian, who were both listed as questionable, are active.
For the Seahawks, QB Mike Teel (third QB), RB Julius Jones, CB Josh Wilson, G Mike Gibson, G Mansfield Wrotto, TE Cameron Morrah, DT Craig Terrill, DE Derek Walker are inactive.
Starting running back Jones was listed as out all week with a chest injury and Justin Forsett will start in his place. CB Kelly Jennings will start for Josh Wilson, who was listed as doubtful with a concussion.
