Vikings-Rams Inactives for Week 16: Mond Active for 1st Time in 2021

The Minnesota Vikings have announced their lone inactive player for Week 16.

Here is who won't suit up against the Rams:

WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette

Adam Thielen (ankle) and C.J. Ham (hamstring) will play despite dealing with injuries. Thielen, who was injured on the first drive in Detroit in Week 13, has missed the past two games.

Rookie quarterback Kellen Mond is active for the first time this season. He was a third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and has been inactive for every game in 2021.

The Rams announced the following players are inactive:

QB Bryce Perkins

RB Cam Akers

LB Chris Garrett

OLB Terrell Lewis
