Vikings Believe Christian Ponder’s Broken Rib Could Protrude Into His Heart

Some people believe that the Vikings are just pretending that Ponder’s broken rib is worse than it is, so they don’t have to answer any questions about the quarterback change.

If you aren’t a conspiracy theorist there is a legitimate reason why Ponder will be sitting on the bench.

Christian Ponder reported no issues throwing the football but said the fractured rib on his left side was in danger of protruding into his heart upon contact so the Vikings opted to sideline their starting quarterback Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
