10:49 AM ET 11.09 | All three Vikings quarterbacks were active Thursday night against the Washington Redskins, adding more intrigue to a saga that has no ending. Matt Cassel knew he was backing up Christian Ponder so he was most prepared to step in when Minnesota's starter dislocated his shoulder late in the third quarter of the Vikings' 34-27 victory at the Metrodome. Josh Freeman, however, remains a $2 million enigma following his ugly, unprepared performance Oct. 21 against the New York Giants, two weeks after the Vikings signed him following his acrimonious release from Tampa Bay. "I'm making a lot of progress from my first game," Freeman said in the locker room. "I can't speak for the coaches. I can't speak for (head coach) Leslie (Frazier). I'm just working as hard as I can. When they need me to go in I plan to go in and play well, whenever that may be."

Cringe might not be the word. Convulse is more apt.

If staying off the field is progress then so be it.

Rumor has it he's working with OC and former bench warmer Bill Musgrave on his throwing.

Tebow will have better mechanics before it's done.

Leslie can act like the mastermind and say he brought in Freeman to make Ponder step up.
