A bizarre injury rumor involving Kirk Cousins began circulating on social media late Saturday night, and NFL fans are responding.
According to a purported revelation made by the NFC North News account on X, the Vikings quarterback is out for the entire 2024 season in addition to this one.
The quarterback was reportedly recovering from an Achilles injury at a team facility when teammate Ed Ingram stopped by to say hello and check on him. After that, the guard was questioned about his new position by the cousins, and Ingram tripped over his ankle while attempting to clarify. Kirk had shared a message on Instagram earlier in the month.
It is reported that the signal-caller collapsed on the ground before receiving medical attention from Vikings personnel.
