Former Badger Could Start for Vikings

By  | 

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Former Badgers quarterback Brooks Bollinger could get his first start for the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at Green Bay.

Starter Tarvaris Jackson is recovering from a concussion, and may not be ready to start.

Bollinger has entered three of Minnesota's eight games after Jackson was hurt.

He's 17 for 24, or nearly 71%, for 215 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions.

His best performance came last week in a win against San Diego, when Jackson was knocked out late in the second quarter.

Bollinger threw his first touchdown pass in 24 regular season games with Minnesota, a 40 yard strike to a wide open Sidney Rice that gave the Vikings their first lead late in the third quarter.
