Leslie Frazier Not Sure If Freeman Will Play
The what-if scenario involving the possibility of Matt Cassel continuing to win and play well is off the table after the Vikings 35-10 loss to the Panthers at Mall of America Field on Sunday.
He has to play better, theres no question about it, coach Leslie Frazier said. I want to go back and evaluate what Matt did in this ballgame and make a determination [on next weeks starter] as we go this week.
With the Vikings 1-4 and having already benched Christian Ponder, all eyes now turn to Freeman, the former Buccaneers first-round pick who signed with the Vikings last Monday. But will he be ready to play when the Vikings travel to play the winless Giants in a Monday Night Football game?
Im not sure, Frazier said. Well take a look when we get with him this week and see where he is. Weve done some things with him in this first week. Well see.
