EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Hoping to gain a competitive advantage, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier is keeping his quarterback plans a secret.
At least for now.
"Regarding our starting quarterback, we've got some things we want to go through," Frazier said at his press conference Wednesday. "I've got an idea of which way we're going to go and how we want to practice but not in a frame of mind where I want to divulge that at this point. Our team knows and I'm sure it'll get out there at some point but I don't want to publicly talk about who's our starting quarterback."
He later added that it likely won't make much of a difference, because opposing defenses primarily focus on Adrian Peterson anyway. He said the Vikings' players have been informed who will likely start, but doesn't plan to announce it publicly until Friday.
Josh Freeman has been medically cleared to practice and play after dealing with concussion symptoms, so health is not a factor in the decision.
Frazier wouldn't bite when asked if he'd prefer to stick with one quarterback the rest of the way, which would have implied Freeman would start Sunday. Instead, he said the team is focused exclusively on Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.
