Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins tested positive for COVID and will miss Sunday afternoon’s preseason game against the Raiders in Las Vegas.

Head coach Kevin O’Connell says the objective was to get Cousins with the team doctors to make sure his symptoms remain minimal:

“All things considered I was really happy with the process at which we went about: confirming it up and making sure first and foremost we were taking care of Kirk, and obviously our coaches and players around him,” O’Connell said.

Cousins is expected to return to practice Tuesday.
