Ponder is the team's third quarterback behind starter Matt Cassel and rookie first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater.
The team announced during the game that Prater left with a head injury and would not return. He'll have to clear concussion protocol before being allowed back on the field.
Prater made just one tackle on special teams before being injured. He will have to pass concussion protocol before being allowed back on the field if the injury was concussion related.
Both players are dealing with ankle injuries. Prater was limited in practice Friday. Rhodes was limited throughout the week.
