Quarterback Kirk Cousins left the game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers with an apparent ankle injury in the fourth quarter.

Cousins appeared to take an awkward step while dropping back to pass, visibly hurt after what looked to be an ankle injury. He was sacked on the play, and limped off the field, not appearing to put weight on the injured limb.

Cousins initially retreated to the blue sideline medical tent, before being carted off to the locker room for further evaluation.

According to ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter on Twitter:

Kirk Cousins tore his Achilles today, per source. An MRI will be taken to confirm.


Kirk Cousins is in the final year of his contract with the Vikings, in what many feel is his best season in the NFL so far.

Rookie quarterback Jaren Hall finished the game at quarterback for Minnesota.

Minnesota ended up winning the game in Green Bay 24-10, and face the Falcons next Sunday in Atlanta.
