MINNEAPOLIS --  Quarterback Christian Ponder will not return Sunday, the team announced.


Ponder was taken to the locker room in the first half to be evaluated for a possible concussion, and Cassel took over for one play. Wide receiver Joe Webb is presumably the backup, with Josh  Freeman inactive Sunday.
