Hip pointer will not sideline Christian Ponder on Sunday at Detroit

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder suffered a hip pointer after taking a shot to his right hip in the first quarter of Sunday’s 35-32 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports coach Leslie Frazier said trainers believe Ponder “should be fine” for Sunday’s game, but he will be limited in practice. Joe Webb is the No. 2 quarterback and would get the start should Ponder sit for Sunday’s game at Detroit.

    Collapse for Kalil Contest: Week 14

    RAM: Odds 2.5 to 1 (Current SOS=111)

    Tough schedule and mediocre play point to a two win season. Ram couldn’t move ball 49’er past 35 yard line on Sunday. And guess who they get to play again to close out season? Weak O line protection has them down to 3rd string QB Brandstater. Word association – brand new starter.

    VIKING: Odds 4 to 1 (Current SOS=109)

    Vike play tough every week before falling on their sword. Could be an NFC playoff spoiler if they could hold onto a lead. Third string secondary an easy target.

    JAGUAR: Odds 15 to 1 (Current SOS=92)

    Good news is they play Buc this Sunday at home. Bad news was on display on Monday. Questionable QB play. No receivers. Walk on secondary. Weak schedule ends with game at Colt. May have to draft another QB in 2012.

    TAMPA BAY: Odds 20 to 1 (Current SOS=100)

    Six straight losses for team and coaching staff struggling to hold on.

    PANTHER: Odds 25 to 1 (Current SOS=93)

    Another game against lowly Buc suggests the Panther could finish 2011 with five wins. Would they trade up to team Matt with Ryan?

    REDSKIN: Odds 25 to 1

    Redskin loss at home was followed by suspension of two O starters. Xmas eve home game against Viking could decide it.

    COLT: Odds 30 to 1

    Run away winner in ‘Suck for Luck’. Should Andrew just start packing a bag for Indiana/

    BROWN: Odds 35 to 1

    Series upcoming against Steeler. Have to upgrade the right side of offensive line

    PHILADELPHIA: Odds 50 to 1

    Vick back this weekend but lining up against…

    DOLPHIN: Odds 60 to 1

    Dolphin an outstanding 4 and 8 team. Four wins in last five games. Better team than most playoff pretenders. After 0 – 7 start should be last week on this list.

    * SOS = Strength of Schedule as measured by current opponent win total

    thanks, Lost

    let’s see now…if we lose tie breaker to the rams, and the other teams are at 4 wins, that would mean we could win one game and have a little fun and not drop any lower in the draft…that’s cool, players deserve that, fans would have one tape to keep for the off season with ALL those highlights…big game for Ponder, AD, Percy, Allen, Rudolf, Longwell, Webb…you name ’em and they have big game….offense has 500 plus yards and 44 points…..defense gets 6 sacks and 3 INTs and a shutout…..yeah, players and coaches smiling on the sidelines…even the wilfs forget the stadium woes for a day…..yeah, now that’s a recorded game to save until next year…in fact, just replay that game every week instead of the real thing…..yeah, that’s what I want for Christmas, the very big win that doesn’t change our draft status……and I pedict it will come on the same week that denver gets beat 44 zip…..

    GO VIKES!!!!!

    If Vike go 2W-2L (a reasonable scenario) we would still have a top 5 pick based on Strength of Schedule.

    Ram really suck. They probably have better than 50-50 shot at 2nd pick overall based on their abysmal play of late. I’ll be surprised if they even come close to winning any of their remaining games.
