Wild Card Weekend Injury Report

UNDATED (AP) - Cornerback

Brandon Browner is expected to start for the Seattle Seahawks in the playoff

opener Sunday at Washington despite just returning this week from his four-game


Coach Pete Carroll was pleased

with a nearly empty injury report Friday. The only players listed were running

back Marshawn Lynch (back) and cornerback Jeremy Lane (knee). Both were

probable and expected to play.

The Minnesota

Vikings have listed quarterback Christian Ponder and cornerback Antoine

Winfield as questionable for their playoff game Saturday against Green Bay. Ponder was limited in practice

all week with a bruised right elbow. He hurt it when it hit a Packers helmet on

the follow-through on Sunday, and he remained in the game to finish one of the

best performances of his career. Coach Leslie Frazier said yesterday he

expected Ponder to be able to play on Saturday. Winfield did not practice on

Wednesday or Thursday and did so on a limited basis on today because of a

broken right hand. He had to come out of the game on Sunday when it swelled up

on him, but Winfield said he will definitely play in the rematch.

Baltimore Ravens star

linebacker Ray Lewis is expected to return for Sunday's AFC Wild Card Game

against the Indianapolis Colts.  The team has declared the 17-year veteran

probable on the final injury report.  Lewis announced on Wednesday that he

will retire after this season.  He has not played since tearing his right

triceps in an October 14th game against Dallas.

Washington Redskins quarterback

Robert Griffin the Third is listed as probable for Sunday's playoff game

against the Seattle Seahawks.  RG3 has been a full participant in practice

this week.  The Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor sat out a Week 15 win at

Cleveland with a knee injury but returned to lead the Redskins to wins over

Philadelphia and Dallas to secure the NFC East title.  Meanwhile, starting

left guard Kory Lichtensteiger missed practice all week with an ankle injury

and is listed as questionable.
