Viking quarterback Christian Ponder has bruised ribs according to Jim Souhan of the Star Tribune and may not play Sunday. Ponder isn't expected to practice today and if he can't play Sunday then Matt Cassel would start in his place.
If you were at the Metrodome yesterday to see the Vikings host the Cleveland Browns, you know it didn't go well for the purple-and-gold. But there were plenty of things OUTSIDE of that game to keep your interest. Photographer Joe Bielawa captured the sights of the Vikings home opener for us.
The Vikings are preparing for their regular season opener Sunday at Detroit at noon, pregame on WJON at 11am. Defensive tackle Kevin Williams is questionable to play due to an injury at San Francisco in the Vikings 3rd preseason game.
The Vikings have only been at training camp for just more than a week and the 3 rookie first round picks for the Vikings are generating quite a buzz. Defensive tackle Sharif Floyd isn't expected to play alongside veteran Kevin Williams but by all accounts will push Williams for playing time.
