MRI scan reveals no ligament damage for Kirk Cousins

An MRI scan shows that Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins did not sustain ligament damage in his foot during their pre-season game last night.

An MRI scan has revealed that Kirk Cousins has avoided ligament damage in his right foot.

The Washington Redskins quarterback left the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers last night with a foot injury.

However, has since reported that the 25-year-old will need just one to two weeks to recover from the mid-foot sprain after a scan showed no ligament damage.

Cousins has been the Redskins' starter this pre-season while Robert Griffin III continues his recovery from knee ligament surgery earlier this year.

Third-string QB Rex Grossman is expected to take the majority of the snaps for the team's remaining two pre-season games.
