The Vikings will once again go with Matt Cassel at quarterback this week against the Eagles.

Christian Ponder has been out with a concussion and Cassel has played well in his spot. Even though the Vikings lost to the Ravens this past week, Cassel had 265 yards and two touchdowns.

The Vikings will still need to figure out what they're going to do at running back though. Adrian Peterson has a foot injury and Toby Gerhart tweaked his hamstring.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier told rpeorters that he had more confidence in Gerhart being able to play than Peterson, but added Peterson's a fast healer.
