Bridgewater Inactive, Ponder To Start Tonight For Vikings
Unable to recover from last week's ankle injury in time, the Minnesota Vikings have listed Teddy Bridgewater as 'inactive' for tonight's game in Green Bay -- opening the door for the return of last year's starting QB Christian Ponder, now third string on the squad.
Also out for the Vikings tonight are tight end Kyle Rudolph, linebacker Chad Greenway, and four more lesser known players. Chandler Harnish, signed to the Vikings practice squad Monday, will be Ponder's backup tonight.
This is now the second year in a row that the Vikings will have started three different quarterbacks in three consecutive weeks.
Kickoff set for 7:25 PM (Radio: AM 1240 WJON, TV: CBS/NFL Network).
