Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Vikings QB Christian Ponder, who fractured his rib, has been cleared to play, but Matt Cassel is Minnesota’s likely starter vs. Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: 

The report that Ponder would miss a few weeks with a fractured rib near his heart were erroneous. Cassel looked good against the Steelers and gets another crack at starting this week against the Panthers.
