Kellen Mond eligible to rejoin Vikings Tuesday if asymptomatic


Rookie quarterback Kellen Mond will be 10 days clear of his positive test for COVID-19 on Tuesday, which will allow him to rejoin the Minnesota Vikings for practice as long as he is asymptomatic, per Judd Zulgad of

It was Mond’s positive test that also sidelined starter Kirk Cousins and second-year quarterback Nate Stanley as they were deemed close contacts to Mond. Jake Browning, the only member of the group that was vaccinated, has remained eligible to take part in practices in their absences.

The Vikings claimed Danny Etling off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks when they found themselves with only one available quarterback last week. Mond’s impending return would potentially mean someone has to go from the group as carrying five quarterbacks on a roster is not a normal occurrence.

Mond had become sick from the infection, offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak said.

Darren Wolfson of KSTP added he’s heard Mond is doing well, so his return to practice should be coming soon if it’s not quite possible on Tuesday.

Mond was a third-round pick this spring by the Vikings out of Texas A&M.

  1. This years Minnesota Vikings team is going to be a total mess
    and it breaks my heart.

  2. Another young athlete getting the virus and being perfectly fine. What are the odds?? s/

  3. Poor decision making is not a trait I’d want in a quarterback.
    But apparently for the Vikings it is…

  4. The fact that he was a third round pick rookie and was not vaccinated shows he is not the sharpest tool in the shed.

  5. Maybe we could trade him right now and get a little something in return, before teams catch on to him being a bust.

  6. He had a golden opportunity to impress above and beyond Cousins, and chose the moron path instead. Freedom is as freedom does!

    We should trade Rogers for mond


  8. Really bad move by Mond in not getting vaccinated. Big mistake. If you aren’t an elite player, you really hurt your future chances by getting the virus. Angering the head coach, missing 10 days worth of chances to make a good impression, and forcing other key players to miss time isn’t exactly starting off on the right foot. Mond will probably never win the starting job in Minnesota.
