​This is just heartbreaking.


On the eve of the Redskins big divisional matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles, Kirk Cousins took to instagram to announce his grandmother has passed away in a heartbreaking post.

The caption reads: "Tonight my Grandma Jean went home to be with the Lord. Her passing was sudden, but because of The Gospel, we will see her again! She left a Spiritual heritage for her children’s children (Deut 6:2) Her favorite song was “In the Garden”. She is now living that hymn more than ever before!"


For anyone who has lost a family member, you embrace Cousins' message while also understanding what he's going through. There's no doubt he'll be playing with a heavy heart against the Eagles on Monday night.

The timing of this news isn't doing Cousins any favors, but there's never a good time for this, frankly.


Our thoughts and prayers go out to Cousins and his family in this difficult time.
