EAGAN, Minn. – The Vikings have placed quarterback Kirk Cousins on the COVID-19 reserve list.

The blow comes two days before their most important game of the season at Green Bay.

Cousins is unvaccinated.

Even if he’s asymptomatic, he wouldn’t be able to return in time to face the Packers.

The NFL recently reduced the required quarantine period to five days.

The Vikings are 7-8.

They are one game out of the last wild-card spot in the NFC with two weeks to go.

Sean Mannion is in line to start for Minnesota on Sunday night at Lambeau Field.
