Ponder will be out for the next three to four weeks with his broken rib with a return possible around Week 8 or 9. This would make Cassel the starter for at least the next three games, if not longer depending on performance and Ponder's health. I have found two different sites saying as much, but both are quoting Judd Zulgad, and to be honest, I am not sure how much this report can be trusted as this info came off a tweet. That being said, I just checked twitter and several more sites were also tweeting Ponder will be out for a few weeks. Seems legit; then again, what do I know?
