Coach Leslie Frazier told reporters before practice that Ponder's status for Seattle is up in the air. If he can't go, Freeman is a candidate to start, according to Frazier.
Rapoport reported Friday that the Vikings viewed Ponder's performance against the Redskins as the finest of his career. It's Ponder's job to lose for the rest of this season, according to Mr. RapSheet. As for next season, we wouldn't be surprised to see Minnesota blow up its quarterback room and reboot the machine from scratch.
