According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, even though Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder suffered a separated shoulder during Thursday night’s game against the Redskins, there’s a chance he could play next week.
On Christian Ponder: Sources tell me his left shoulder dislocation is considered minor. Very possible he starts next week. Will know by Wed

Even if Ponder can’t play, Matt Cassel and Josh Freeman would be an upgrade.
