Reports: Christian Ponder not practicing, Cassel likely to start

By akrammer@1500espn.com

According to multiple reports from London, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder did not practice early Friday and did not have his helmet with him.

Backup quarterback Matt Cassel would make his first start as a member of the Vikings  against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday if Ponder can’t go from an apparent rib injury suffered in a loss to the Cleveland Browns.

We’ll hear more after Friday’s practice, but it appears Cassel may start.

Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley coached the Kansas City Chiefs from 2009 to 2011. Cassel was the Chiefs’ starting quarterback from 2009 to 2012 before signing with the Vikings this offseason.
