Harvin, Winfield questionable for Panthers

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Receiver Percy Harvin and cornerback Antoine Winfield are listed as questionable for the Minnesota Vikings game against Carolina on Sunday.
Harvin has a rib injury that has bothered him for most of the season. He missed the second half of the game against Green Bay last weekend because of it, but says he thinks he will be able to play at Carolina.
Winfield has missed three straight games with a neck injury. He tested it in practice this week, but coach Leslie Frazier says they will have to see how he feels Saturday before making a decision.
Running back Lorenzo Booker is also questionable with a concussion. That means Minnesota's top two kick returners, Harvin and Booker, are banged up. Rookie Stephen Burton could fill in on Sunday.
