Webb to start for Vikings at QB tonight with Ponder listed as inactive
The surprise announcement about 90 minutes before Saturday's game means Joe Webb will start at quarterback for the Vikings.
Ponder was hurt when Packers safety Morgan Burnett delivered a jarring hit on a blitz when the teams played last Sunday. Ponder finished the game with a career-high 120.2 passer rating and three touchdowns in the 37-34 win.
His participation in practice this week was limited and Webb took many of the turns with the first team offense. Ponder was listed as questionable on the injury report, though, and he took only about a dozen soft, short throws in early warm-ups.
