Lions-Vikings Preview

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield was deactivated for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions with a lingering hamstring injury.

Winfield, who sat out last week against the New York Giants, was listed as questionable Friday and said earlier in the week that he hoped to be back on the field. The injury has bothered him for the last month and flared up in the second quarter against the Raiders two weeks ago.

Receiver Troy Williamson also was deactivated with a concussion sustained during a kickoff return last week against the Giants. He practiced Wednesday, but sat out the rest of the week with headaches.

Robert Ferguson started in his place, and rookie Marcus McCauley got his second straight start at cornerback for the Vikings, who also made a switch in the starting lineup at defensive end.

Erasmus James replaced Ray Edwards at right defensive end. Edwards started the first 11 games this season while James worked his way back from a serious knee injury.

The Lions also did some shuffling on the defensive line, starting Dewayne White at right end in place of Kalimba Edwards and sliding Jared DeVries over from right end to left end.
