Ponder will start for Vikings against Packers

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Christian Ponder will be Minnesota's starting quarterback again on Sunday night.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier made the announcement Friday. Josh Freeman took the last turn on the carousel, but after his rough performance on Monday night he reported concussion-like symptoms. Freeman was cleared to resume practicing with the team on Friday, but Frazier decided that was too late in the week for him to catch up with the game plan and get ready to play Green Bay.

So after being benched for Matt Cassel earlier this month, Ponder has the job again.

The best game of Ponder's NFL career came against the Packers last year, a victory by the Vikings to finish the regular season and reach the playoffs.
