Cousins, who is unvaccinated, missed Sunday night’s loss to the Packers after testing positive.
Cousins, 33, is a former fourth-round pick of the Redskins back in 2012. He played out the final year of his rookie contract before being franchised in back-to-back seasons by Washington.
Cousins later departed in free agency for a three-year, $84 million contract with the Vikings. He was entering the final year of his contract when he agreed to a two-year, $66 million contract last year.
In 2021, Cousins has appeared in 15 games for the Vikings and completed 66.4 percent of his passes for 3,971 yards, 30 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He has also rushed for 116 yards and a touchdown.
