Kirk Cousins claims he would have missed Sunday’s game, even if vaccinated

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Meeting with reporters on his first day back from a five-day absence, Cousins said that, because he was experiencing mild symptoms, he would have tested positive and missed the Week 17 game against the Packers.

“In my instance it wouldn’t have mattered, just because I had mild symptoms,” Cousins told reporters. Or maybe, if vaccinated and thus not subject to mandatory testing, he wouldn’t have noticed or mentioned the mild symptoms and showed up for what was, ultimately, a fatal blow to the team’s playoff chances. Why even bother to self-report symptoms?

“Hey, you probably should test me today, even though you’re going to test me anyway.”

Regardless, the Vikings are done – and many will be watching and waiting for see whether ownership continues the “Just good enough” dog paddle, or whether it insists on major changes for a team that has qualified for the playoffs only once in four years since the Minneapolis Miracle.
