‘Captain’ Kirk Cousins was tackled low when scrambling out of bounds in the first half of last night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He got up, headed back to the huddle with a slight limp, then sat down on the field. A collective gasp was echoed by fans at FedEx Field.
Today though, the MRI shows no serious damage to Kirk Cousins’ foot. Are the football Gods being kind to us this year??

An MRI exam taken Tuesday showed no serious damage to the right foot of Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, a person familiar with the situation said.
Cousins was found to have suffered no significant ligament damage in his foot, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the team did not announce the MRI results. The person said Cousins is expected to be available when the Redskins open the regular season Sept. 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Redskins called the injury a mild mid-foot sprain after the game and hoped nothing more serious would be found.
