EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Another week has brought another quarterback quandary for the Minnesota Vikings.

Matt Cassel played well enough in relief of Christian Ponder to take over the job. Ponder left Sunday's win over Chicago with a concussion.

Coach Leslie Frazier declined Monday to declare Cassel the new starter. Frazier said there's no rush to decide.

The Vikings play at Baltimore this week.

Frazier also didn't directly answer a question about whether Josh Freeman will be considered for the job against the Ravens. He was inactive Sunday against the Bears. Ponder took a hit to the head in the second quarter and did not return.

Frazier said Ponder's injury is a ''concern.''
