Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman will not be in uniform in Week 9. Freeman is expected to be a healthy inactive against the Cowboys, according to Pro Football Talk. The five-year veteran missed Week 8 with a concussion.
Freeman has appeared in just one game for Minnesota this season. He started in the Week 7 loss to the Giants, in which he only completed 38 percent of his passes and threw for 190 yards against the league's 18th-ranked defense. He suffered the concussion during the loss and Christian Ponder started in his place during Week 8's loss to the Packers.
Ponder will get the start again on Sunday and Matt Cassel will serve as his backup. Ponder is 0-4 as a starter this season and the Vikings are 1-6 overall. Cassel is the only Vikings quarterback to have won a game this season and has only started two games.
