This is Why Christian Ponder Couldn't Play Against Green Bay

There wasn't much in the way of explanation on Saturday night as to why Christian Ponder wasn't starting at quarterback for the Vikings against the Packers. It wasn't until later, and after poor Joe Webb was 11-30 for 180 yards with a TD and a pick, that we found out Ponder couldn't play thanks to a bruised tricep.

At first you might think, 'A bruised tricep? C'mon Ponder, you're a pro. Suck it up!' But then someone gets a picture of said tricep and then you think, 'holy crap!'

It looks like Ponder's arm spent a few minutes in a meat grinder, or got run over with a snow tire. Sucks for him that he had to miss the game, but his job is safe after some mid-season struggles.
