               === Vikings QB Ponder inactive, Webb to start ===
 
 Green  Bay, WI  (Sports  Network) -  Minnesota  Vikings quarterback  Christian
 Ponder  will  be inactive for Saturday's  NFC Wild Card matchup with the Green
 Bay Packers due to an elbow injury.
 
 Ponder  suffered  the injury in last  Sunday's 37-34 win over the Packers. The
 second-year  signal  caller tested  his arm  in pregame  warmups, but left the
 field with a Vikings trainer and was declared inactive soon after.
 
 Joe  Webb  will start  in place  of Ponder.  Webb is  1-1 as  a starter in his
 career, but has yet to attempt a pass this season for Minnesota.
 
 McLeod Bethel-Thompson will serve as Webb's backup.
