Chris Cook, Jamarca Sanford out for Vikings

By Josh Alper

The news that Christian Ponder won’t be in the lineup against the Steelers on Sunday was the biggest development in Vikings camp on Friday morning, but he won’t be the only player sidelined for the game because of injury.

Multiple reporters covering the Vikings in London report that cornerback Chris Cook […]

Greg Jennings: Cassel is “more verbal, kind of commanding in the huddle.”

By Josh Alper

Matt Cassel is starting at quarterback for the Vikings on Sunday, a move that wasn’t unexpected with Christian Ponder battling a fractured rib.

It’s also a move that the team’s wide receivers are greeting with compliments for the way Cassel leads the offense. Jerome Simpson said, via Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis […]

Matt Cassel will start for Vikings

By Josh Alper

The Vikings sent a hint about who would be their starting quarterback against the Steelers at Friday’s practice when Christian Ponder was on the sideline without a helmet during the portion of practice open to the media.

They confirmed it a short time later. The Vikings have announced that Matt Cassel will […]

Christian Ponder takes majority of snaps in Thursday practice

By Josh Alper

The Vikings aren’t ready to make a call on who will start at quarterback against the Steelers on Sunday, but the chances that Christian Ponder gets the nod seemed to improve on Thursday.

Leslie Frazier wants to see more of Cordarrelle Patterson

By Josh Alper

The Vikings traded up into the first round in April to get wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and discussion immediately began about how he and Greg Jeninngs would be frequent targets for Christian Ponder in the passing game.

It hasn’t turned out that way. Patterson had a 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown […]

Matt Kalil: I’m not freaked out by one bad game

By Josh Alper

Vikings left tackle Matt Kalil didn’t have the best preseason, picking up personal fouls and giving up sacks to the opposition during the team’s exhibition games.

It’s easy to forget those things when a player comes out and plays at a higher level when the games start counting, but it gets viewed […]

Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder’s 2013 season did not get off to a good start as he turned the ball over four time on the way to a 34-24 loss to the Lions last Sunday.

That performance has given fuel to the fire built by those who don’t feel […]
