EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings have three starters fighting injuries: Wide receiver Bernard Berrian, middle linebacker E.J. Henderson and cornerback Antoine Winfield.

Berrian hurt his left hamstring last week at Pittsburgh. Winfield missed that game because of an injury to his right foot. Henderson's knee is on the mend. They were all held out of Wednesday's practice.

The Vikings visit Green Bay this weekend in Brett Favre's return to Lambeau Field. The quarterback appeared on the injury report with a hip problem, and Favre was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice.

Another starter, linebacker Ben Leber, was limited in practice because of a calf injury.
