MINNESOTA SPORTS ROUNDUP: Cassel to start Sunday against Philadelphia
Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel will again be under center when Minnesota hosts the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at the Metrodome. Head coach Leslie Frazier named Cassel the starter for the second straight week, with fellow quarterback Christian Ponder suffering from a concussion. Ponder has been cleared to play and will be the back-up Q-B. Josh Freeman will be the No. 3 signal-caller for Minnesota. Cassel was 17-of-38 for 265 yards and two touchdowns last Sunday against Baltimore.
