Kirk Cousins leaves game with foot injury


“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.
