Beat writer Tom Pelissero "remains convinced" CB Antoine Winfield (hand) will play in Saturday night's Wild Card game against the Packers.
Winfield said Thursday that he will "definitely" play. He lasted only 18 snaps in the Week 17 win due to pain and swelling in his fractured hand. He's expected to be fitted with a larger soft cast this week and gut it out. Winfield graded out as one of the league's best corners this season.
