ESPN's Ed Werder Expects Freeman To Start Sunday

ESPN’s Ed Werder isn’t the type of reporter that throws wild speculation out.  When he states something, he usually has some kind of inside information to back it up.

Werder FullWerder continued to tweet about the Vikings quarterback situation, dismissing the idea that Christian Ponder would give the team the best chance to win if Freeman was healthy.
