After losing 41-20 at Seattle on Sunday, Minnesota Vikings Coach Leslie Frazier did not have a lot of answers to the Vikings strategies for the upcoming game against Green Bay.

The 2-8 team has yet to win a game on the road.

Christian Ponder started at quarterback after a dislocated shoulder took him out of the game early against the Washington Redskins on Nov. 7. Frazier said the Vikings would have a better idea about who will start at quarterback at Green Bay later in the week.

Frazier said the team was working with Josh Freeman on his mechanics before and after practice, but the team is doing this with all their quarterbacks. Freeman put up his best numbers with Tampa during his first few years with the team. Frazier planned to look at his style then and compare it to the Vikings style in an effort to establish Freeman in Minnesota.

The Packers have their own quarterback woes after Aaron Rogers suffered a fractured collarbone. The team is on a three game losing streak under back-up quarterbacks Seneca Wallace, who was injured against Philadelphia Nov. 10, and third-stringer Scott Tolzien.

Frazier did not know what Adrian Peterson's playing time will look at Green Bay on Sunday or if he will possibly sit the game out to fully recover from a groin injury. Cornerback Josh Robinson fractured his sternum and center John Sullivan suffered a concussion at Seattle.

Jerome Simpson, facing DWI charges after leaving a Minneapolis bar Nov. 10, could "possibly" return to the starting lineup, according to Frazier.
