GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Antoine Winfield is back.
As expected, the Minnesota Vikings' veteran cornerback was activated and slated to start Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers.
Winfield was a full participant in practice all week for the first time since straining his neck on Oct. 2 at Kansas City.
There were no surprises on the Vikings' list of inactives: cornerbacks Chris Cook and Brandon Burton, linebacker Xavier Adibi, guard Anthony Herrera, tackle DeMarcus Love, receiver Stephen Burton and end D'Aundre Reed.
Joe Berger got the start in place of Herrera, who suffered lateral collateral ligament damage in his left knee in the Vikings' first meeting with the Packers on Oct. 23.
Inactive for the Packers were: Davon House, Robert Francois, Jamari Lattimore, Frank Zombo, Ray Dominguez, Chad Clifton and Mike Neal.
