Christian Ponder suffers concussion
Sunday, December 1, 2013, 8:50pm
Ponder took a helmet-to-helmet hit on a two-yard completion to Greg Jennings near the end of the first half, and went to the locker room without his helmet to be evaluated.
After Ponder left the game, Matt Cassel led a 10-point comeback in the fourth quarter and eventually directed the Vikings to a 23-20 overtime win. Cassel threw for 243 yards in relief of Ponder. Josh Freeman would be the backup to Cassel if Ponder misses time. But it's a tough matchup at Baltimore in Week 14.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte missed practice on Wednesday because of a hyperextended right knee, but coach Marc Trestman sounded confident that Forte will play in Sunday’s NFC North divisional game against the Minnesota Vikings.
“I’m still optimistic that [Forte will play on Sunday],” Trestman said. “I feel pretty good that he’ll start getting some work tomorrow. We’ll see where he is at, but I’m going in optimistic.”

Forte has a nice matchup this week against the Vikings. The tweet said they will see where he is at Wednesday, but Forte was able to return to the game so he should have a good chance to play in Week 13. If you're an owner, it's a good time to go out and get Michael Bush if you haven't already.

At least Vikings coach Leslie Frazier won't have to make a quarterback announcement Monday.
Or Wednesday. Or Thursday. Or Friday.
As the story pointed out, nearly each week this season, there has been some suspense about who would start at quarterback. Frazier has waited until mid to late week to make his announcement but that won't be the case this week. The Vikings take on the Bears who were torched by the Rams in Week 12.
