Christian Ponder's Week 4 status in question

The Minnesota Vikings will be searching for their first win of the 2013-14 regular season this weekend when they travel overseas to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, who also sit at 0-3, in London at Wembley Stadium.

While both teams have been struggling to get in the win column, it could end up being tougher for the Vikings thanks to an injury to their starting quarterback.

Christian Ponder revealed that he had suffered a rib injury in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns and that the injury has made his status for this weekend’s game.

From the Pioneer Press on Twitter:

While Ponder hasn’t been the most impressive starting quarterback for the Vikings, he is still their best bet for a win against Pittsburgh.

Without Ponder under center, the team would have to turn to Matt Cassell, who has yet to find himself as a starting quarterback in the league since leaving the New England Patriots years ago.
