Kirk Cousins Injury: Per report, no ligament damage, Redskins QB will be back soon

Kirk Cousins' MRI showed no ligament damage, much to the relief of the Redskins.

Per 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins did not suffer any ligament damage, and he should be "back soon."

The good news surrounding Cousins is just one of what appears to be several bullets the Redskins will have dodged, after injuries were also sustained Monday night by Barry Cofield (hand), Leonard Hankerson (knee) and Aldrick Robinson (thigh). As of now, none of the aforementioned injuries are considered threats for the players to miss time.

However, it is worth mentioning that this was the same initial outlook when rookie safety Phillip Thomas exited the team's preseason opener, and the team eventually found out Thomas would miss the season due to a lisfranc injury. But that grim sentence is not in store for Cousins, who could see the field during next week's preseason dress rehearsal versus the Bills.

It's never a good thing for players to get banged up, but after having to be without players like Thomas, Adam Carriker, and of course, Robert Griffin III, the non-threatening nature of Monday's injuries is a welcome reprieve for the team.
