Vikings lose Christian Ponder
Ponder was hit hard by Bucs’ linebacker London Fletcher and defensive end Adam Carriker on a sack.
Ponder completed 8 of 13 passes for 68 yards before leaving the game. Joe Webb is in for Ponder. He scored on a 9-yard run on the next series to give the Vikings the lead.
The Vikings are also without running back Adrian Peterson after he suffered a knee injury that could end his season.
