It's still Rasmussen — for now

Derek Rasmussen missed an opportunity to seize the starting quarterback position last week. He threw two touchdown passes in the Wild's win over Odessa, but he completed just 10 of 23 passes for 115 yards. He also threw two interceptions, bringing his season totals to 16 TD passes to 10 interceptions.

But Rasmussen is expected to get the start again on Saturday at Sioux City, since Alex Melugin's throwing shoulder is still sore.

"Derek didn't really say 'The job is mine' with the way he played – I didn't see that from him," coach Ken Matous said. "But he did win the game."
