The Minnesota Vikings sent Kirk Cousins home from practice on Thursday after he revealed he was feeling ill.
Turns out it was for good reason.
The cousin has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.
He will not play in the Vikings President's Opener this weekend.
"Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Sunday's game," said ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The good news is that it's just preseason and Kirk Cousins wasn't going to play much anyway.
We hope he feels better soon.
"Let's be real, he wasn't supposed to play in that preseason game," said one fan.
"Why would he play in the first place," wrote another fan.
"Better now than later," wrote Torrey Smith.
Both Sean Manion and Kellen Mondt will have plenty of play time on Sunday.
