After the dive it was pretty clear Ponder was hurting and it didn't take long for the team to rule him out for the rest of the game. As it turns out his non-throwing shoulder was dislocated.
This could very well mean that his season is over, and with the way things have gone this season you have to wonder if it means the end of his time in Minnesota as well. It looks like the Vikings are stuck with Matt Cassell or Josh Freeman for the time being.
Cassell finished the game and went 4-6 for 47 yards in the process.
