Kirk Cousins leaves game with foot injury

Kirk Cousins AP

“Operation Patience” was the message on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s t-shirt before Monday night’s game against the Steelers.

“Operation Grossman” may be the Redskins’ motto for the rest of the preseason.

Kirk Cousins, starting in place of Griffin for the second straight game, went down to the ground and grabbed his right foot after being tackled by Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons while trying to run out of bounds in the second quarter. He was taken to the sideline, where trainers removed his shoe and started their examinations.

Rex Grossman replaced Cousins and would presumably remain in the game for the rest of the half at the very least if Cousins doesn’t recover. Pat White is the only other quarterback currently on the Redskins roster, which could mean a job opportunity for a currently unemployed signal caller if Cousins isn’t able to play for the rest of the preseason.

UPDATE 8:58 p.m. ET: The Redskins have announced that Cousins’ return is questionable with a right foot injury.

    It’s only week 2 of the preseason. Kirk will be fine. He is the backup anyways. Robert Griffin the 3rd will be under center opening night and the Redskins domination will continue this season as usual. #GodsTeamwillbefine

    The Steelers win every game where there is no intervention. Unfortunately, these interventions are greater than ever and the Steelers are forced to play by mortal rules. We will still win the Super Bowl, which will prove to be the most glorious yet.

    Don’t you worry; Steeler Nation is alive and well. Our magnificent trophy case is unblemished. Many of you have questioned our present strength. I will only tell you that we are now reaching a climax in our efforts against an ancient nemesis. This Nemesis’ only goal is to see the Steeler Nation fail.

    Let me provide some background for those with feeble grasps of history. Since the dawn of man, there have been two kinds of men: the common man and the divine man. The common man is the typical one you see today. Their leaders are very cunning and have sought to rid the world of their superiors – the divine man. You would better know this group as the Steeler Nation. We have a lineage of God-blood in our bodies that allow for amazing things in the presence of you mere mortals. We instinctively gather to this group and know our cause, as birds fly south.

    Our goal is to eventually start our own league – the SFL – to fully express our divine abilities without the taint of rat-like humans and their creations of agents and lawyers. Still, we feel an obligation to defeat or at least lobotomize our ancient foes before we set off.

    Be assured, we will defeat them and their political games. Wow, you look up in awe of our splendor.

    Wow.

  6. bengalguy says: Aug 19, 2013 9:06 PM

    Not sure who is more of a Mommas Boy, logical or jealous. Either way they both serve it up with weak sauce.
    WHO DEY NATION RULES THE NORTH!!

  8. ososrule says: Aug 19, 2013 9:12 PM

    I don’t know what planet you live on, 6 Rings, but the Steelers suck now and are not considered a threat anymore…..wake up Corky! Your posts are lame and make no sense!

    “A Steelers linebacker injured a quarterback. That’s a massive fine!” – Roger Goodell probably

  10. gibson34 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:15 PM

    great job shanarat….another broken leg having your QB run 2 plays in a row…..they don’t get it.
    grossman will be starter soon….lmao.

  11. bluntsmokinskinsfan says: Aug 19, 2013 9:15 PM

    There are a few strange people on the Internet

  12. beerbudsnbevo says: Aug 19, 2013 9:15 PM

    Steelers Offensive Line stinks…making the Skins Defense look better than it is….

    The report on Cousins is he suffered a fractured Uterus

  13. citizenstrange says: Aug 19, 2013 9:17 PM

    Typical, typical, typical Roethlisberger performance.

    Three points scored and a pick seven given up.

    Can we all agree that he just SUCKS?

  14. 4ever85 (aka Butch DeadLift) says: Aug 19, 2013 9:20 PM

    Troll Bowl.

  15. cinfante54 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:21 PM

    if this is God’s team then he really stopped caring since the Redskin’s last Super Bowl huh? Given that 146-189-1 record since then…

  16. aaroncurryisbust says: Aug 19, 2013 9:22 PM

    Hurt Cousins.

  17. football7712002 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:25 PM

    actually if Cousins keeps getting hurt might be bad if rg3 isn’t 100%

  18. bengalguy says: Aug 19, 2013 9:30 PM

    Old soft team

  19. nananatman says: Aug 19, 2013 9:31 PM

    Thank the Lord Dr. Andrews was there holding the RG Knee on the sideline.

  20. skinsfan91 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:39 PM

    Garcon sucks. I’m sure they’re bracketing coverage on him.

  21. skoobyfl says: Aug 19, 2013 9:42 PM

    Lots of dreamers tonight.

  22. tooz72 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:43 PM

    when you have 2 injured QBs, you have none

  23. boyshole25 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:43 PM

    Hahah the steelers are old and weak they got dominated. The ravens are going to absolutely eat that o line after I saw what my favorite team the skins did to them oh yea the bengals are def sweeping the old curtain too

  24. thehairychestsportsblog says: Aug 19, 2013 9:44 PM

    Two reasons why I am getting tired with the NFL……Dejon Gomes makes a good hit on a WR on 3rd down and gets a 15 yard penalty……Aldrick Robinson catches a first down pass and gets hit in the knee by a safety…..sick and tired of the way defenders have to play……

  25. firestarter0728 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:50 PM

    With RG3 under center, the Redskins are a 5-11 football team at best.

    Otherwise, 8-8.

  26. alphaq2 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:53 PM

    Hey, 6rings joker. It would be nice if you could be humble just once. You squad looks awfull and the Skins made it obvious that the Steelers will not compete for anything of importance. Good luck with even making the playoffs.

  27. purpleguy says: Aug 19, 2013 9:54 PM

    No worries, the coach will put him in next week and the week after — until his foot falls off.

  28. arlingtonsynn says: Aug 19, 2013 9:55 PM

    Btw…

    I love the fact that the two biggest trolls are the first ones to respond to a Steelers/Skins game.

    I wonder if you are both now compelled to step up your game for the rest of this comment section.

    Have at it boys!

  29. boyshole25 says: Aug 19, 2013 9:55 PM

    Lol at steeler fans that think the nfl owes their teams for being part of the nfl

  30. whysomanylosers says: Aug 19, 2013 10:01 PM

    They are going to protect Kirk Cousins. The [insert derogatory team name here] are really going to need him after RG the 3rd inevitably goes down for the season.

  31. jimmysee says: Aug 19, 2013 10:01 PM

    All Redskins fans gasp.

  32. buddysguys says: Aug 19, 2013 10:02 PM

    and grudens career would be over.

  33. thegreatgabbert says: Aug 19, 2013 10:04 PM

    Gruesome and Jus Cuz both gimped. Is the stadium built on an old Indian burial ground, or something?

  34. blackqbwhiterb says: Aug 19, 2013 10:05 PM

    Sprained foot, x-rays negative, Redskins will be A-OK…. I wish I knew what RG3 truly felt at that moment…

  35. The Shoeman says: Aug 19, 2013 10:07 PM

    do you 2 really believe in your BS ?
    man . . that must be some good stuff !

  36. hippieway says: Aug 19, 2013 10:14 PM

    Wow is right

    The mind boggles

  37. kd75 says: Aug 19, 2013 10:17 PM

    Shanahan breaks QBs like I break wind…

  38. len462 says: Aug 19, 2013 10:18 PM

    Wow is right. Like as in ‘wow, these two are idiots.’ I’m guessing you two are still here only because they put that picture on plastic bags warning you not to put them over your head.

  39. monkeyhateclean says: Aug 19, 2013 10:22 PM

    Wow, RG will be using a walker for the rest of 2013, and now Cousins shows his fragility?

    Redskins fans might need to consider worshiping Satan if they want a full season out of their horrible QB’s. Because God sure ain’t doin’ them any favors. Maybe its their dedication to a racist nickname? LOL!

  40. greymares says: Aug 19, 2013 10:24 PM

    Dr. Andrews just started feeling better about ROBERT.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Don’t worry Dude! Maybe Dr. Frankenstien Can take body parts from each one of your QB’s and make one who could stay healthy for a whole season?

  43. anarchopurplism says: Aug 19, 2013 11:36 PM

    Steeler guy neglected to take his crazy pills apparently. I thought you gave up that nonsense a year ago!

    I’m not sure I am liking where this “master race” dialogue is going. If you start blaming who invented AstroTurf, I’m outta here.
