Vikings to start Cassel in London
Matt Cassel will start Sunday for the Minnesota Vikings, replacing injured Christian Ponder at quarterback against the Pittsburgh Steelers when they meet at Wembley Stadium in London.
Christian Ponder attempted to practice with a painful rib injury for the third straight game, but coach Leslie Frazier is giving Cassel the start for the winless Vikings.
"I hope he plays well. This teams needs him to play well and I think he will play well," Ponder said Friday.
