Christian Ponder gets concussed, goes to Target, poses with Lions fan [PHOTO]
Ponder is tested for a concussion on the sidelines during Sunday's game.
Late in the first half of the Vikings' eventual triumph over the Bears, embattled quarterback Christian Ponder was hit by two Chicago defenders and left lying on the Metrodome turf, head in hands. He was later diagnosed with a concussion and didn't return to the game. His status for Sunday's tilt in Baltimore remains in doubt.
But if you think literally getting his brains scrambled kept Christian from running errands, think again.
Here, via gossip site Twin Cities Starlight, is a photo of Ponder posing with a Lions fan, of all people, at a local target after Sunday's game:

In all seriousness, concussions are no laughing matter, so we're glad to see Christian's isn't preventing him from doing day-to-day things.
