Senior Bowl 2011: Christian Ponder Takes Over After Greg McElroy, Andy Dalton Injuries

The South team is almost out of quarterbacks in the Senior Bowl after Greg McElroy and Andy Dalton both went down due to injury. With no other quarterbacks remaining for the South, it’s down to Christian Ponder, who will take all the reps for the remainder of the game as the South tries to hold off the hard charging North. McElroy injured his hand after connecting with a helmet in the second half while Dalton left after being sacked in the third quarter.

The North had a chance to cut the South lead to four, but Kai Forbath pull-hooked his 44-yard field goal, squandering a golden opportunity. Even with the miss, the North easily has all the momentum in the Senior Bowl, coming out of the half firing and never letting up. After the South dominated the first half, holding the North to just 18 yards of total offense, the North has scored 10 unanswered points in the second to make it a one-score game.

With five minutes to go can the North find the end zone again to knot the game up? We’ll keep you updated as the Senior Bowl comes to a close in Alabama. You can catch all the action on NFL Network, or follow our StoryStream for live updates and stats.
