The Indianapolis Colts are set to be without star quarterback Anthony Richardson for the next few games after his unfortunate injury in Week 5. And that has led the team to make a move to bring in some more quarterback depth.

Richardson was diagnosed on Monday with a sprained AC joint, which will likely hold him out of the next four games for the Colts. While he is seeking a second opinion on that diagnosis, the point remains that he will likely be out for quite some time.

That means that veteran quarterback Gardner Minshew will be the starter for the foreseeable future. But the depth behind him currently within the organization is very thin, with only Sam Ehlinger currently backing up Minshew.

This led the team to work out a number of quarterbacks on Tuesday to potentially add to their practice squad.

It didn’t take long for the Colts to figure out which of these quarterbacks they would be signing, as reports emerged shortly after that the team would be signing former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kellen Mond.

Mond has bounced around the NFL since being drafted by the Vikings in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft, also spending time in the Cleveland Browns organization. In his time in the league, he has seen very little action in regular season games, playing only once in 2021 with the Vikings.

It obviously would take injuries to the likes of Minshew and Ehlinger for Mond to see the field this season. But Mond does present the Colts with an intriguing option with some potential that has yet to be reached in the NFL to this point of his career.
