Freeman believes he suffered his head injury on a hit in the third quarter, Frazier said. Freeman didn't say anything about it during the game, the coach said.

Frazier said history shows that's it's tough to return from concussions in a short week. Freeman will take concussion tests Wednesday.


What in the world...I don't remember a hit in the 3rd quarter.

I think it is a legit concussion. That's one of those things with the testing that you can't fake, and the testing isn't just done by the Vikings.

Then Frazier hit him over the head with a sack of doorknobs in his sleep. He didn't suffer a concussion in the game.

This true but he just show symptoms last night for the first time. I find that hard to believe.

Well he was knocked down on more than half his throws it seems.

Ponder now needs to play the game of his life just to make things even more amusing than they already are

So at this point Frasier is pretty much gone at the end of the year I assume.

Yup, and only because outside of the special teams coach no coordinator could be a HC, Frasier will likely stick around until the end of the season. Otherwise he'd be gone sooner, probably now.

This whole season is a car crash for the Vikings - can see a lot of guys losing their gig at the end of the season.

Doesn't surprise me. At the end of that game Josh Freeman was on the ground practically after every play. I kept thinking that Leslie Frazier was going to get him hurt by letting him get hit so much. Looks like he did.
