Vikings | Christian Ponder has fractured rib

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder (rib) is dealing with a fractured rib and will sit out Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was injured on the second hit of the game in Week 3 and said he was feeling pain Monday, Sept. 23. The bone is broken near his heart, which is the reason why the team decided to keep him out this weekend. Minnesota has a bye in Week 5, so he'll have an extra week to heal.

Fantasy Tip: Ponder isn't guaranteed to return to the starting role after the bye week if Matt Cassel plays well this weekend against the Steelers. Leave Ponder to the waiver wire in all formats.
