Ponder dealing with rib injury
Matt Cassel will start at quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings against the Pittsburgh Steelers in place of Christian Ponder, who has a fractured rib. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take:This is a sideways move with a hint of upside for the Vikings offense. Sooner or later the Vikings will come to understand that Ponder isn't the quarterback of their future. For now, Cassel will have an opportunity to take the starting job from Ponder with a decent showing in London.
