Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier announced on Wednesday that Christian Ponder will be the team’s starting QB on Sunday when the Green Bay Packers visit Mall of America Field.
Ponder, who was chosen by the Vikings in the 1st round (#12 overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft, saw his first regular season action on Sunday in a loss to Chicago when he replaced Donovan McNabb in the 2nd half. In one quarter of action, Ponder was 9 of 17 for 99 yard with no TDs or INTs; he also had one carry for 8 yards.
Questions about McNabb’s standing as the starting QB surfaced early in the season after the Vikings stumbled out of the gate to a 0-4 start.
