EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings are considering a quarterback change.
Rookie Christian Ponder relieved Donovan McNabb in the fourth quarter Sunday at Chicago with the Vikings losing 39-10. Coach Leslie Frazier said Monday he’ll discuss the situation with his staff over the next two days and decide by Wednesday who starts against Green Bay.
Frazier said he doesn’t want to flip-flop from week to week, so if Ponder gets the nod the job will probably be his for good.
The Bears sacked McNabb four times on his last six snaps of the third quarter, and the Vikings fell to 1-5. The 34-year-old has thrown for only four touchdown passes in six games.
