Joe Webb: Starting For Injured Ponder (Elbow) Saturday Staff

Update: Webb will start in Saturday's Wild Card matchup against the Packers with Christian Ponder (elbow) inactive.

Recommendation: Webb hasn't started a game this season, but does have previous starting experience in 2010 and 2011. Webb is one of the more athletic quarterbacks in the league, so much so that the Vikings have previously experimented with him at other positions on the field. For all his physical gifts, Webb's career passing numbers aren't particularly strong, so expect the Vikings to utilize an even more ground-based offense than they normally would, involving a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson and perhaps some designed runs for Webb as well.
