Vikings Activate Kellen Mond From Reserve/COVID-19 List


EAGAN, Minn. — Kellen Mond is back with the Vikings.

Minnesota activated its rookie quarterback from the Reserve/COVID-19 list after Monday was away from the team facility for the past 10 days.

Mond participated in two sessions with rookies and select veterans before also hitting the field for the first three practices of U.S. Bank Training Camp. He missed the Night Practice on July 31 and subsequent sessions.

He is now one of five quarterbacks on the active roster, joining Kirk Cousins, Jake Browning, Nate Stanley and Danny Etling.

Mond was the 66th overall pick (third round) in the 2021 NFL Draft.

He was a four-year starter at Texas A&M and holds program records in passing yards (9,661), touchdowns (71), completions (801) and attempts (1,358).

Mond also leads the Aggies all-time in total offense (11,269 yards), a total that ranks seventh in SEC history.

It remains to be seen if Mond will play in Minnesota's preseason opener against Denver on Saturday at U.S. Bank Stadium.
