Ponder 'more than likely' gets start against Packers

Christian Ponder may get the start at quarterback Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers as Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier revealed Wednesday that Josh Freeman suffered a concussion in Monday night's game.

Frazier said on Vikings.com that Freeman will have to pass the NFL-mandated tests and be evaluated daily.

"We’ll have to proceed as if he’s not going to make it,” said Frazier, pointing to the short week the team has coming off a Monday night game and also the lack of time Freeman has had with the team. "We need to get Christian ready to go."
