The official injury report for tonight's Bears-Vikings game has been released and the Vikings will again be without veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield. Winfield still has stiffness in his neck and hasn't practiced since before the team's Oct. 2 loss in Kansas City. He did not play last week against Arizona.

For Chicago, defensive end Julius Peppers is active and will start but is still nursing a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee, an injury he suffered in last Monday night's loss at Detroit. Peppers did not practice this week but will give it a go tonight.

Other inactives for the Vikings: cornerback Brandon Burton, safety Mistral Raymond, linebacker Xavier Adibi, offensive lineman Brandon Fusco, offensive lineman DeMarcus Love and defensive end D'Aundre Reed.

Bears inactives tonight include safety Chris Harris, guard Gabe Carimi, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina, receiver Earl Bennett, defensive ends Nick Reed and Corey Wootton and quarterback Nathan Enderle.
