Cousins out for Sunday’s Viking preseason opener

August 12, 2022 Sports News 0

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins won’t be accompanying the team for Sunday’s preseason opener at Las Vegas.  Vikings Coach Kevin O’Connell announced Friday that Cousins has tested positive for COVID-19…and will need to isolate for five days.  The Vikings sent Cousins home Thursday after he became ill, but did not disclose his illness until Friday.  You might remember Cousins missed a game last season after testing positive for COVID.  

This means Sean Mannion and Kellen Mond will be under center when the Vikings and Raiders meet Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas.  You can hear the Vikings and Raiders on KRJB-FM and KKCQ-FM with Sunday’s coverage starting at 2:30pm and kickoff at 3:25.
