Cousins is Rodgers’ Injury Sub for Pro Bowl for 3rd Time
EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Kirk Cousins will be the Pro Bowl injury replacement for Aaron Rodgers for a third time. The Minnesota Vikings quarterback was added to the NFC roster for the game in Las Vegas.
Rodgers played much of the season for the Green Bay Packers with a broken toe.
Cousins was also picked as the fill-in for Rodgers after the 2019 season with Minnesota and after the 2016 season with Washington.
The 33-year-old Cousins was one of two players in the NFL this season with 30-plus touchdown passes and fewer than 10 interceptions. Rodgers was the other.
The 2022 NFL Pro Bowl is this Sunday (2/6) in Las Vegas, with the kickoff set for 2:00 pm CT on ESPN.
