Vikings confirm that quarterback Kirk Cousins has torn Achilles tendon

Less than 24 hours after it happened, the Vikings confirmed everybody’s worst fear.

Kirk Cousins underwent an MRI on Monday morning that revealed he has indeed torn his Achilles tendon.

That was the assumption after Cousins had to get carted off the field on Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field. He suffered the major injury while trying to step up in the pocket with the Vikings well on their way to a 24-10 win over the Green Bay Packers. He hopped off the field without putting any weight on his right foot before eventually making his way to the medical tent.

This is devastating news for the Vikings, to say the least, especially considering they had won three games in a row to get themselves back into the NFC North race. Now they are left to pick up the pieces without Cousins at the helm.

The details for his upcoming surgery will be determined at some point this week.
