According to Judd Zulgad of ESPN 1500 in Minnesota, Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder could miss another 3-4 games since he broke the rib that’s right outside of his heart.
I'm guessing that with Christian Ponder having a fractured rib near his heart he will be out because of injury for three to four games.

It really doesn’t matter if Ponder misses the remainder of the season. It was obvious last week that Matt Cassel is the Vikings best quarterback.
