Kirk Cousins Limited In Monday Return To Practice

The quarterback said he wasn’t able to do everything in practice when he rejoined teammates on Monday after he missed two days last week because of a sprained right ankle.


ASHBURN – Kirk Cousins returned to practice Monday, though he said he wasn’t able to do everything he would normally do because of a sprained right foot.


The quarterback originally injured the foot in the preseason game against the Steelers on Aug. 19, sat out of practice all of last week and didn’t play Saturday against the Bills.

“I felt good today – probably about what I expected,” Cousins said. “I moved around pretty well. I was still favoring it, but it’s still just continuing to get better every day. I’ve got to get the point where I’m not favoring it at all.”

Cousins said he couldn’t roll out or change direction if asked because of the foot, but he wouldn’t be able to do either at full speed.

He doesn’t know if he’ll be able to play Thursday in the final preseason game against the Buccaneers, but Mike Shanahan said it isn’t likely.

“You can tell it’s much improved than it was a few days ago, but it would be a long shot for him to play in the game,” Shanahan said.
