Vikings put QB Kirk Cousins on COVID list. He’s won’t play at Green Bay and Sean Mannion expected to start – Twin Cities



The Vikings on Friday placed quarterback Kirk Cousins on the COVID-19 reserve list after he tested positive, and he will miss Sunday night’s game at Green Bay.

Cousins is unvaccinated. According to NFL protocols, he must quarantine at least five days.

A source said that backup quarterback Sean Mannion is expected to come off the COVID-19 reserve list and he will start on Sunday night. Mannion, who is fully vaccinated, was placed on the list last Sunday shortly before Minnesota’s 30-23 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.


The Vikings also have rookie quarterback Kellen Mond and Kyle Sloter, who was re-signed on Tuesday after the being on the Vikings’ active roster in 2017 and 2018. Neither Mond nor Sloter has appeared in an NFL regular-season game.
