MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings have listed quarterback Christian Ponder and cornerback Antoine Winfield as questionable for their playoff game on Saturday against Green Bay.

Ponder was limited in practice all week with a bruised right elbow. He hurt it when it hit a Packers helmet on the follow-through on Sunday, and he remained in the game to finish one of the best performances of his career. Coach Leslie Frazier said on Thursday he expected Ponder to be able to play on Saturday.

Winfield did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday and did so on a limited basis on Friday because of a broken right hand. He had to come out of the game on Sunday when it swelled up on him, but Winfield said he will definitely play in the rematch.
