Ponder suffered the injury in last week's loss against Cleveland. The injury means reserve quarterback Matt Cassell will be behind the center on Sunday. Cassell says he was notified this morning that he'd get the starting nod for the noon game on Sunday. Like the Vikings, Pittsburgh is 0-3 this season.
