November 11

Mike Wobschall started the week off with the usual Monday Morning Mailbag where he touched on, among other things, Leslie Frazier's calling of timeouts at the end of the Redskins game.

Frazier addressed the media after the team's short morning practice to provide injury updates to Christian Ponder and others.

Wobschall examined a strength vs. strength matchup on Sunday: special teams. The AP sent us a pair of stories: one on Cordarrelle Patterson's possibly increased role due to Jerome Simpson's recent arrest, and the other talking about Christian Ponder proclaiming he's ready to go on Sunday. Leslie Frazier stopped short of naming Ponder the starter on Friday -- that desicion will be made on Saturday -- during his post-practice press conference.

Both Ponder and Adrian Peterson are probable for the game; click here for the full Friday injury report for both teams. Finally, Wobschall recaps the week-long buildup to Sunday's game via his 'What We Learned' column.

We posted a pair of segments from this Sunday's "Vikings GamePlan," including a film rook breakdown with Paul Allen and Pete Bercich, and Wobschall and Allen going over the three keys to victory for the Vikings on Sunday.
