Childress press conference highlights

CB Antoine Winfield has a strained pectoral muscle and WR Sidney Rice has a sprained ankle, according to Vikings coach Brad Childress.

Childress said their status is "uncertain" for Sunday's key game against the Washington Redskins. But, given a short week, both may be in danger of missing the game.

Meanwhile, Childress lamented that LB E.J. Henderson did not make the Pro Bowl team, although he was named a second alternate. LB Heath Farwell (second), K Ryan Longwell (first) and LT Bryant McKinnie (second) were also alternates.

Other highlights from the press conference:

* G Artis Hicks was able to play few snaps, after missing the last game against the San Francisco 49ers with a back injury.

* S Tank Williams is expected to return to the lineup Sunday against the Redskins.

* Childress said LS Cullen Loeffler may have been distracted last night, because his wife was in labor.
