Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins tests positive for COVID-19, will miss preseason opener

EAGAN, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has tested positive for COVID-19, coach Kevin O'Connell said Friday. Cousins will be required to isolate for at least five days, meaning he will not travel with the team for Sunday's preseason opener against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Barring complications, Cousins would be eligible to re-join the team Tuesday for the final week of training camp. O'Connell said Cousins' symptoms are minimal.

The Vikings sent Cousins home from training camp Thursday after he fell ill but did not immediately confirm the diagnosis.
