Pondler stricken with general soreness in and around the rib area and may not start Sunday. Thinking back to the Browns game wasn't he decleated six times for loss? Bound to get a sharpened elbow to the midriff at some point when that happens during a game.

I wonder though. Maybe some teammates held him down with a sheet and beat him with soap wrapped in towels like in Full Metal Jacket. All to get Cassel a start. Hmmmmm?
