With Ponder injured, Webb could see action

GREEN BAY -- Joe Webb might get a chance to throw some passes for the Vikings after all this season.

Quarterback Christian Ponder was listed on the Vikings injury report as questionable because of an elbow injury, but team officials said all week they were confident Ponder would be ready for tonight's game against the Packers here at Lambeau Field.

The two quarterbacks will work out before the game, and an NFL source said "it's looking more likely" that Webb will start, meaning Ponder's elbow might not be ready.

No decision has been made yet.

With Ponder limited in practice all week, Webb has taken snaps with the offense and shouldn't be terribly uncomfortable if pressed into action.

Webb's only action this season has been a kneeldown in victory formation.

We'll have updates as the game nears.
