Since announcing which of his bad quarterbacks he planned to start hasn’t worked so well, Vikings coach Leslie Frazier is going to keep it to himself this week.

Frazier told reporters today that he had an idea who was going to start against the Cowboys this week, but he didn’t plan to reveal his decision until later in the week.

At this point, anyone other than Josh Freeman would be a surprise. He was inactive for Sunday’s loss to the Packers after suffering a concussion, though he was cleared to play. That gave him another week to digest what the Vikings want to do, after he was thrown in so soon after being acquired.

Christian Ponder was back in the lineup last week, with Matt Cassel backing up.
