You hate to see this happen to a veteran quarterback like this. In the rivalry showdown between the Vikings and Packers on Sunday, Kirk Cousins went down with an injury that looked quite serious. He was carted off the field and Minnesota fans feared the worst.

On Monday, the worst has been confirmed, with it being revealed that Cousins has suffered a torn Achilles. Just like that, his season has officially come to a close. The Vikings were able to take down the Packers in Week 8, but folks are down in the dumps over this Cousins news.

Cousins has a cannon for a right arm, as he had thrown for 2,331 yards and 18 touchdowns this campaign before going down with his injury. Now, the Vikings, 4-4 on the year, will turn to rookie Jaren Hall to run the offense the rest of the way.
