Vikings | Christian Ponder improving
Mon, 11 Nov 2013 12:42:38 -0800
Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder (shoulder) said his dislocated left shoulder is feeling better, and he expects to return to play in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks. "The thing with this injury is, it's not really going to hinder anything," he said. "It's not hindering my throwing motion or anything. It's just going to be taking a hit or something, and we don't have fear that it's going to get worse. It's just being able to handle the pain, and if I can do it, then I'll play." An MRI exam showed that he has no further damage to his arm. Head coach Leslie Frazier wants to see how Ponder performs in practice this week before naming a starter.
Ponder looked the best he has all season before he was hurt in Week 10. Even if he returns this weekend, you should stay away from him, especially while going up against the formidable Seahawks.
