LONDON - Eric Perkins and his fellow KARE crew mates are spending their first days in London capturing flavor and setting the scene for Sunday's game between the Vikings and Steelers, but he did manage to break some news this morning.
While talking live via phone with Sunrise, Perk shared the news that Vikings QB Christian Ponder is struggling with a rib injury suffered in last weekend's game against Cleveland. Coaches say he will be limited in practice Wednesday, and his condition will be re-evaluated Friday.
If Ponder continues to be affected by the injury, backup Matt Cassel would get the start.
Stay tuned to KARE 11 for updates, and also follow Eric at @PerkatPlay, Rena Sarigianopoulos at @renakare11, or @karevikes for posts, pics and videos from our entire crew.
