Former Michigan State Spartans football star Kirk Cousins walked off the field in his Washington Redskins jersey yesterday after going down in their second preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It has been reported that Cousins has suffered from a sprained mid-foot from the fall, and he will get an MRI today. Cousins was starting at quarterback in place of fellow 2012 draft pick, Robert Griffin III, who is in the end stages of recovering from a torn ACL.
Another former Spartan was also on the field last night – running back Le'Veon Bell. The Steelers drafted Bell in the second round earlier this year after Bell decided to forgo his last season at Michigan State. The star running back made his debut in last night's game after missing the preseason opener due to knee stiffness. However, he didn't make it past the first quarter without catching the injury bug again; Bell also suffered a mid-foot injury after four carries and left the field. The Steelers announced that he wouldn't return to the game and after the game, head coach Mike Tomlin said that Bell would get an MRI today to check it out.
With both new NFL players from MSU off the field, the Redskins ended up taking a 24-13 victory over the Steelers. The two teams will not play each other in the regular season, so Spartan loyalists will have to watch Bell and Cousins in the NFL in separate games… If they can both stay off the bench from injuries.
