Pick a quarterback, any quarterback. The Minnesota Vikings seem to have a different one every game, or multiple quarterbacks in a single game even.
Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder actually had some nice moments in Thursday's 34-27 victory over the Washington Redskins, but he was forced to exit late in the third quarter with a left shoulder injury.
Ponder was attempting to score on a scramble but was hit by Redskins corner DeAngelo Hall, and the ball popped out of Ponder's hand at the Redskins' 1-yard line. On the play, Ponder landed awkwardly on his left shoulder and came out of the game, replaced by backup Matt Cassel. Adrian Peterson scored a touchdown one play later.
Ponder was ruled out very soon after. The Vikings had three active quarterbacks, with Josh Freeman the No. 3 QB.
It appears that the injury was a shoulder separation. The Thursday game gives Ponder extra time to return to the lineup.
Ponder had dislocated left shoulder. It was relocated into its proper spot. He's optimistic he will be ready for Seattle in 10 days.
