Minneapolis Star Tribune: Brad Childress decided not to
keep his starting QB a secret until Sunday after all. The
Vikings coach is sticking with Tarvaris Jackson, even
though veteran Gus Fre- rotte is healthy enough to play.
Jackson will make his second consecutive start Sunday
against the Falcons in place of Frerotte, who suffered a
broken bone in his lower back against Detroit. The No. 3
quarterback last week against the Cardinals, Frerotte will
serve as Jackson's backup Sunday. Childress said he
considered a number of factors before ultimately deciding
that Jackson "gives our team the best chance right now."
"That takes nothing away from Gus," he said. "It's more a
product of what Tarvaris has done with the ball in his
hand." Childress, however, declined to say whether Jackson
will remain the starter beyond Sunday's game.
