Minnesota Vikings Injury Report, Week 17: Christian Ponder Not Limited On Wednesday

This weekend's game against the Chicago Bears doesn't really mean that much for the Minnesota Vikings given the lack of postseason implications for the game, but it will be another chance for quarterback Christian Ponder to get reps as he tries to improve for the future.

After getting knocked out of last week's game against the Washington Redskins, Ponder was active and participating in practice with the Vikings on Wednesday and coaches said earlier in the day that he's expected to start against Chicago. That's good news for the Vikings as they try to develop their 2011 first-round pick. Minnesota's full injury report can be found here, but it's shown below:

Full Participation

- QB Christian Ponder

- CB Asher Allen

Limited Participation

- S Jamarca Sanford

Did Not Participate

- OG Anthony Herrera

- CB Chris Cook

Ponder was the big name on Minnesota's injury list for the week, so it's good to hear that's healthy and expected to play. Allen's health is also some positive news, as the third-year cornerback has started eight times this season and shown some flashes of potential.
