Posted Jan. 05, 2013
Webb will start at quarterback for the Vikings with Christian Ponder inactive for Minnesota's wild-card playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.||||||| Ponder's participation in practice this week was limited and Webb took many of the turns with the first team offense. Ponder was listed as questionable on the injury report, though, and he took only about a dozen soft, short throws in early warm-ups.

After replacing Christian Ponder under center, Webb through for 84 and a score during Sunday's 34-28 loss at Detroit.||||||| Webb also rushed for a career-high 109 yards - including a 65-yard score. He remains a risky fantasy play but definitely has some value due to his speed.

The 15-yard penalty wiped out the gain, and the Vikings had to punt one play later. Webb could start Sunday's game at NFC North rival Detroit.
