  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Plays one series in loss

    Mond isn't a candidate to start Week 18 against Chicago, with Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer saying "not particularly" when asked if he wanted to see Mond play, the Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Mond played one series in Sunday's loss at Green Bay, going 2-for-3 for five yards.

    Mond played one series when starter Sean Mannion was unavailable due to a hand injury. It's not clear if Kirk Cousins will start Week 18 with the Vikings eliminated from playoff contention (and not clear if Cousins will return from the COVID-19 list), but it looks like Mannion and not Mond would start if needed.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Will be backup QB in Week 17

    Mond will be the backup quarterback behind Sean Mannion during Sunday's contest against the Packers after Minnesota placed Kirk Cousins on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports.

    Mond will be active for a second straight contest after being inactive for the first 15 weeks of the season. Last week, the rookie third-round pick was the backup to Cousins after Mannion was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but this week, he will be backing up Mannion after Cousins was ruled out due to the NFL's protocols. Barring an injury or blowout, Mond isn't expected to see the field in Week 17.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Dressing as backup Sunday

    Mond will be active as the Vikings' No. 2 quarterback Sunday against the Rams after Minnesota placed Sean Mannion (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Courtney Cronin of reports.

    Mond has been inactive all season as the Vikings' No. 3 quarterback, but he'll be needed to back up Kirk Cousins on Sunday with Mannion out. Unless Cousins suffers an in-game injury or the contest turns into a blowout for either side, Mond is unlikely to see the field.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Inactive for Week 1

    Mond (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against Cincinnati.

    Mond has been listed as inactive for the season opener, which seems to suggest he has lost the battle for being the No. 2 quarterback to Sean Mannion. The former Texas A&M standout will have to wait to make his debut on an active roster.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Improves in preseason finale

    Mond was 16-of-23 passing for 196 yards with an interception and a lost fumble in Friday's preseason loss at Kansas City. He added five carries for 40 yards.

    Despite the turnovers, Mond improved in his third exhibition game as he led the Vikings to their only two touchdown drives of the preseason. With Jake Browning struggling in the preseason, Mond could open the regular season as the backup to Kirk Cousins despite an uneven exhibition slate.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Struggles again Saturday

    Mond struggled in his second preseason appearance by going 6-for-12 passing for 61 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday's preseason loss to Indianapolis. He added three carries for eight yards.

    Mond fumbled a snap on his first series, and the offense didn't score on his six drives. However, Jake Browning also struggled, leaving open the possibility the Vikings could acquire a veteran to serve as the backup to Kirk Cousins. Mond likely will need a strong showing in the last preseason game to have a chance to win the backup role outright.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Shows rust

    Mond completed six of his 16 pass attempts for 53 yards in Saturday's preseason contest against the Broncos. He also rushed the ball five times for 25 yards.

    Mond wasn't expected to play in the game after missing 10 days of practice while on the COVID-19 list. Despite that, he entered the contest as the team's second quarterback. Predictably, Mond didn't look particularly sharp leading the offense, with his inexperience as a rookie and rust after missing practice likely contributing factors. Jake Browning served as the team's starting quarterback with Kirk Cousins sidelined, though Mond is projected to surpass Browning as the team's backup quarterback come the regular season.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Unlikely to play Saturday

    Coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday that Mond is likely to sit out Saturday's exhibition match against the Broncos, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Zimmer said Mond is "rusty" after missing 10 days of practice on the COVID-19 list, per Krammer. Mond was a "little slow with his reads," Zimmer said, and, "He needs to speed up the tempo a little bit." The rookie third-round pick is listed as the fourth quarterback on Minnesota's first depth chart of the preseason.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Activated from COVID-19 list

    The Vikings activated Mond (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

    Mond can now join teammates on the practice field. The rookie third-round pick had been away from the team since July 31 after returning a positive test for COVID-19, resulting in his missing out on valuable training camp reps. If he can catch up quickly, Mond could have a chance to see some action during Saturday's preseason contest against the Broncos.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Feeling better recently

    Mond (COVID-19) has been feeling better recently, Darren Wolfson of KSTP reports.

    Mond has been away from the team since July 31 after he tested positive for coronavirus, but he's eligible to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list as early as Tuesday. The rookie may have a chance to return for Friday's preseason opener against the Broncos if he returns to practice early in the week, but his recent absence could impact his status as he competes with Nate Stanley and Jake Browning to serve as Kirk Cousins' primary backup.
