Christian Ponder practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, but that doesn't mean he will see the field Sunday.
"Yesterday it looked like he (Ponder) was a little bit more comfortable than he was over there in England," offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Thursday. "So that's a process we're going to continue to go through today and hope he's even better."
The addition of Josh Freeman during the team's bye week muddled Minnesota's waters even more. Coach Leslie Frazier told reporters Monday that Freeman won't play this week. He also said that he plans to watch Cassel and Ponder in practice before determining who will start in Week 6.
This will be Freeman's team to guide as soon as he is up to speed.
