Christian Ponder's offseason elbow scare
By Kevin Seifert
We noted earlier that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder revealed this week that his right elbow contusion mysteriously returned a few weeks after the season (but before he declared himself fully healthy during a March interview).
In the video, Ponder provides a frenetic re-retelling of the events that led him to an emergency room, the initial fears of doctors and how athletic trainer Eric Sugarman convinced them to slow down on plans for immediate surgery. Ultimately, the injury resolved itself and Ponder is participating fully in the Vikings' offseason program.
