'According to head coach Kevin O'Connell, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was sent home from the practice facility on Thursday before practice with an undisclosed illness.

"Kirk Cousins obviously was not out at the walk-through today," O'connell said. "I have not gotten much of an update, but I do know he was not feeling well earlier. We have a process in place where we send him home and we’ll go through our processes internally, I’ll get an update for you guys as the week pans out on his availability for the Raiders game."

If Cousins cannot go, we'll get a good and heavy look at the "co-backup" quarterbacks Kellen Mond and Sean Mannion splitting much of the main reps with any ones and twos that end up playing.

It is unclear if Cousins' illness is COVID-19 at this time, but the team is undergoing their internal process to rule out COVID and attempt to diagnose the illness and help Kirk get healthy soon.
