EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Monday announced linebacker Ryan Connelly has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Tackle Timon Parris, whom the Vikings signed on Oct. 26, has been added to Reserve Practice Squad/COVID-19 list.

Connelly, a native of Eden Prairie has played in all eight of the Vikings games this season. He has not seen any action on defense but has played 150 (62 percent) of Minnesota's special teams snaps and recorded three tackles.

Parris has not spent any time on the Vikings active roster since joining the team last month.

Connelly and Parris are the fourth and fifth Vikings to be added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list in the past week.

Center Garrett Bradbury, who was vaccinated against the virus in the spring, missed Sunday's game due to a breakthrough case. Guard Dakota Dozier was added to the Reserve Practice Squad/COVID-19 list Friday.

Safety Harrison Smith, who told reporters in June he was unvaccinated, was added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list in Baltimore shortly before inactives were announced. Rookie safety Cam Bynum started in place of Smith and recorded his first career interception.
