Frazier: I'm not thinking about QB change after Vikings loss

Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier was clear in his support of beleaguered quarterback Donovan McNabb in the wake of the Vikings' dispiriting 26-23 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

"I don't think the quarterback position is our problem right now," Frazier said after the game, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "No. We're not thinking about [any changes] at the quarterback position."

McNabb completed 22 of 36 passes for 211 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions on Sunday, but the Vikings once again bogged down after halftime, losing a 20-0 lead and the game to Detroit. Minnesota's offense has scored just two field goals in the second half all season, and some in the media have called for rookie Christian Ponder, the No. 12 overall pick, to replace McNabb.

McNabb also suffered a mild right wrist injury midway through the third quarter. He stayed in the game.

"The wrist kind of stiffened up on me a little bit, but it loosened up as we continued on," McNabb said.
