Minnesota Vikings QBs Kirk Cousins, Nate Stanley anticipated to return from COVID-19 record Thursday, Mike Zimmer says

EAGAN, Minnesota – The Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks Kirk Cousins ​​and Nate Stanley are expected to return to training Thursday after a five-day stint on the Reserve / COVID-19 list, according to Trainer Mike Zimmer.

Cousins ​​and Stanley entered the COVID-19 logs on Saturday after being classified as high-risk close contacts when rookie quarterback Kellen Mond returned a positive test for COVID-19. Jake Browning, who has been on the Minnesota training team for the past two seasons, has received the majority of quarterback representatives in training for the past three days.

Zimmer shrugged when asked when Moon would return, but according to NFL / NFLPA protocols, the rookie quarterback will be out for at least 10 days.

According to a Washington Post report, the Vikings have the lowest vaccination rate in the league at 64.5% of fully vaccinated players.

Zimmer, who spoke of his frustrations with his players refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccine, said Wednesday that he would no longer discuss the issue.

On Tuesday, Zimmer appeared on KFAN-100.3 FM and was asked by host Dan Barreiro if he had discussions with cousins ​​about his decision not to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Not really,” said Zimmer. “I’ve talked to him about, not necessarily, whether or not to get vaccinated, I’ve just talked to him about some protocols he doesn’t believe in. And I said, ‘Well, call’ DR. [Allen] Window sill [the NFL’s chief medical officer] or call the league, whatever is there call yours [players’ association]. But I’m kind of refined that these guys won’t. I would be interested to know how many of the starting quarterbacks aren’t [vaccinated] in the league. I do not know.”
