Vikings | Christian Ponder has concussion
Mon, 02 Dec 2013 09:19:01 -0800
Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder (concussion) left the team's Week 13 game in the second quarter with a concussion, and his status for Week 14 is uncertain. QB Matt Cassel replaced Ponder in the game and led the team to an overtime win by throwing for 243 yards. Head coach Leslie Frazier said Ponder will be in consideration for the start next weekend if he's healthy.
Prepare to go with backup options if you were relying on Ponder in a league that starts two quarterbacks. He'll have to pass the league-mandated concussion tests this week in order to be cleared to play.
