Kirk Cousins was excused from Vikings practise on Thursday.

Kirk Cousins was sent home from Thursday's practise by the Minnesota Vikings because he wasn't feeling well.

The team is still "working through" whether Cousins has COVID-19, according to head coach Kevin O'Connell (via Pro Football Talk's Charean Williams).

If the quarterback tests positive, he will be isolated for five days and will miss Sunday's preseason opener against the Las Vegas Raiders.

"Obviously, Kirk Cousins was not at the walkthrough today." "I haven't heard much about it, but I know he wasn't feeling well earlier,"

O'Connell told reporters on Thursday. "We have a process in place for sending him home, and we'll go through it internally."

I'll give you an update on his availability for the Raider game as the week progresses."
