PONDER STILL THE STARTER 02 Oct 13

Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier says Christian Ponder is still the starting quarterback, if he’s healthy.  Frazier said they will see how Ponder feels coming out of the bye week.  The 1-and-3 Vikings will have the weekend off.  Frazier says while reserve Matt Cassell played well in last Sunday’s win, it still wasn’t enough to name him the starter just yet.  They will host the Carolina Panthers a week from Sunday.  In other team news, the Vikings waived offensive tackle DeMarcus Love.
