Opening Statement:
“Running back Mark Ingram (right toe), linebacker Jonathan Casillas(right knee), and linebacker Jon Vilma (left knee). We limited defensive end Turk McBride (ankle), so he got some work. The rest of these four players were all full: defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis (hamstring) was full, cornerback Tracy Porter (wrist) was full, tight end Jimmy Graham (back) was full, and linebacker Scott Shanle (left shoulder) was full. Practice squad -- we signed wide receiver Andy Tanner and released quarterback Sean Canfield.”

Are you expecting to see Christian Ponder play this weekend?
“I think we have to prepare for both (quarterbacks) and make sure we’re ready for both and study certainly their differences because this would be a week where there would be a difference between the two players. Our plan would be to prepare for both.”

How key is it to stopping Adrian Peterson?
“I think it’s very important. He’s as talented a player I think at running back as there is in the league. We saw a very good player (Chris Johnson) last week, but Adrian is one of those players with great explosiveness through the hole. He has very good vision, balance, and he runs with a real good pad level. I think you have to begin your game plan with that in mind. He’s that good of a player.”

How difficult is it to slow down Percy Harvin with all the things he can do?
“He lines up in a lot of different spots. For the last two years we’ve played these guys and have seen him first hand, he’s dangerous with the ball in his hands, he’s a strong runner after the catch, he has real good balance and I think recognizing formationally where he’s at and if there are any tendencies really doing a good job with the film study and understanding the type of player he is. Some of our guys have played against him, but when you get him on a fast track like we’ve seen here, but certainly at home he’s one of those guys that can make a difference on any given play.”

I loath the Vi-Queens almost as much as the Fal-Clowns.

I really want us to just slaughter them. I htink we need to be ready to run the ball becasue they will give up some of their stiff run "D" to try & rattle Drew. Get a few draws & screens... that will slow them down!!
