Vikings Depth Chart: Joe Webb Expected To Stay In Front Of Sage Rosenfels

The Minnesota Vikings will obviously have Christian Ponder at the top of their quarterback depth chart for the foreseeable future, but there has been a bit of speculation that the backup spot could be up for grabs. That apparently isn't the case, however -- at least for the final preseason game of the year.

Despite Sage Rosenfels looking pretty solid thus far -- leading the team to its only touchdown last week -- it seems as though Joe Webb is still ahead of him on the depth chart. The Pioneer Press got offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave's thoughts on the matter Monday afternoon.

"Joe did a good job the other night," Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Monday at Winter Park. "He's going to have another chance to gain some valuable experience on Thursday night and continue to grow into that role."

It'll be interesting to see if Rosenfels is able to continue to have success this weekend -- especially since he and Webb will likely split quarterback duties evenly as Ponder is expected to sit.
