Tramon Williams probable for Packers; Ponder, Winfield questionable for Vikings

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 4, 2013 – 2:26 pm

Tramon WilliamsPackers CB Tramon Williams, who missed Thursday’s practice due to illness, is listed as probable on the injury report for Saturday night’s game.

Of the four Packers pass-catchers on the injury report, only WR Jarrett Boykin (ankle) is out. WR Randall Cobb, WR Jordy Nelson and TE Jermichael Finley are all probable.

Also listed as probable are RB Alex Green, CB Davon House and DB Charles Woodson.

RB James Starks (knee) is listed as questionable, while DE Jerel Worthy (knee) is out. Worthy’s injury is season-ending.

The Vikings are listing two starters as questionable — QB Christian Ponder (elbow) and CB Antoine Winfield (hand). Ponder developed a sore elbow following a hit from Packers S Morgan Burnett on a blitz last Sunday but finished the game without incident. Winfield tried to play with a soft cast on his broken hand but removed himself from the game by halftime.

The only player the Vikings have ruled out is backup LB Tyrone McKenzie (shoulder). The other eight Vikings on the injury report — including starters DE Jared Allen, DE Brian Robison, S Harrison Smith and RB Adrian Peterson — are all probable.

    Have they signed anyone to fill the roster spot with Worthy out?

    If Ponder does not play, that could be huge for us!!

    Here in Minnesota (ugh), they’ve been calling Ponder’s injury reports a “rumor” on the local sports talk radio. Honestly, I’m not sure if there’s much difference between him and Webb as far as we’re concerned, but is there more to his injury than locals have been letting on?

    Ponder will play, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Let’s play them at their best. With Ponder being their best, the odds favor the Pack. Can’t wait! GO PACK . .

    I’m excited to see my Pack play! I live in Atlanta, originally from Milwaukee…I’m lookin forward to another playoff game here in the Georgia Dome, featuring the mighty Green Bay Packers!

    Rogers and Peterson will x each other out. Turnovers will sway outcome. Crosby decides game.

    Of course ponder will play ! It’s all hype BS ! Defense and third down conversions big tonight. NO ARM TACKLING, AP is only human, stop him, pressure ponder, and we will be moving onto the next team ! PACKERS 34-vikes 17. GO PACK GO

    How is it that the Packer fans from a Wisconsin end up living somewhere else? I guess other than the packers the only other reason to live there is for the cheese; and some how they have been able to connect the two. Pure genius.

    Greetings from Germany. The match will start at 2 o’clock in the night, but that’s no reason to miss it.

    Im looking for the Packers to play at a high level in front of the home crowd…They will play with a comfortable lead that will FORCE the Vikings to throw the ball more than they want to which will result in a lopsided win for GreenBay..all of the Vikings losses have been outdoors and thats not about to change..38~14 Packers

    Crunch time, Mr. Capers. Can you handle it?

  21. By Heather on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    If we show up in the first half this time we will be victorious! Great second half last Sunday! Clay has to all over the QB and receivers have to hold onto the ball!!

    When Charles Woodson gets a pick-six tonight will that count towards the record since this is a playoff game and not regular season?

  23. By billfromc'ville on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    John, Mr. Capers can most certainly handle it . Remember last week the players were in position but failed to make the plays. Players must execute, and to do that they must have discipline. Don’t let their emotions get the best of them.

    Packers can’t win a playoff game at home this well not go well yes in am sick about it but that just the way it go. I can’t even watch it I well take a sleeping pill and hope I am wrong and check it out on Sunday it’s just to much stressfully so good luck and GO PACK!

    To the other Lee who posted above: There are lots of Packers fans from Wisconsin who now live elsewhere, for all sorts of reasons. I’m one, and I’m all the way on the other side of the planet (Hong Kong), but I wish I were at Lambeau for the game tonight, cold and all. Packers fans stay loyal, no matter where they go, because the Packers are the greatest team in football. Once a Cheesehead, always a Cheesehead. Go Pack, Go!

    Lots of viking fans hope webb plays too. He has a cannon arm and if you hate how ponder scrambles you will be apoplectic when webb breaks the pocket. He is the strongest fastest qb you will have seen. Even Kapernick is not in his league athletically. Joe Webb is dangerous, make no mistake. I also remember Webb beat Philly a couple of years ago in the cold in his first start, and he had an incredible comeback game against the lions last year that fell short, and the dumba** beat the redskins the next week which caused vikings to lose the number 2 pick. I think this is gamesmanship by Frazier, but Webb is a wildcard, and dangerous with the ball. He has a strong arm, but worry about his ability to break out of the pocket. He looks like he sees downfield better than ponder too. scouting highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wX-I7KZjRU

    Where is that Nigerian guy?

  30. By Big Cheese on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    That Nigerian guy is Ditka. Pack will not lose this game, AP may get his 100+ yds, but Ponder will have to perform, and I don’t see that happening. Rodgers and Jennings hook up for a good game. Ponder takes a beating. Go Pack!

    keep Wiliams hands to himself instead of the offense face and we will win, he was loosing turning point last game.. We play Packer football and we will win. If the refs let us play hurry-up football we will win, What are we going to do? WIN..

    Reality is that Ponder’s elbow is fine. Leslie is just setting up the rationale for pulling Ponder from the game after his first pic. That will help save Ponder’s trade value in the off season. That said, beware of Web.

    no doubt AP will rush for over 150 yards against us tonight, but it doesnt matter because offensively we are going to light up the air, rodgers throws at least 4 touchdowns today. GO PACK GO!!!!! p.s. aaron rodgers is the greatest qb in the game
