The road to recovery started on Wednesday morning as Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins had successful surgery to repair his Achilles.
The organization released the following statement:
“Kirk Cousins underwent successful surgery to repair his torn Achilles tendon this morning at Twin Cities Orthopedics in Eagan, Minn. The surgery was led by Dr. Chris Coetzee. The team will continue to provide updates, as appropriate, during Cousins’ recovery process.”
After waking up from surgery, Cousins posted on social media, thanking the fan base for their continued support.
He suffered the major injury on Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field while leading the Vikings to a 24-10 win over the Green Bay Packers.
