The Minnesota Vikings will be without starting quarterback Christian Ponder for Saturday night’s playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. Ponder is unable to extend his right (throwing) elbow and had been listed as “questionable” on the team’s final injury report of the week. Joe Webb, who did not throw a pass all season, will make the start.
For the Packers, wide receiver Donald Driver is the most notable inactive player. Driver, the Packers’ all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards, is a healthy scratch.
Minnesota: QB Christian Ponder, WR Stephen Burton, OT Troy Kropog, DE George Johnson, DE D’Aundre Reed, LB Tyrone McKenzie, CB Brandon Burton
Green Bay: RB James Starks, WR Jarrett Boykin, WR Donald Driver, DE Jerel Worthy, DL Jordan Miller, LB Frank Zombo, CB Davon House
