WASHINGTON (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has no ligament damage in his right foot and should be ready for the regular season opener.
Cousins had an MRI on Tuesday. He sprained his foot when he was tackled at the end of a run in the second quarter of Monday night's preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the Redskins have not announced the results of the MRI. Coach Mike Shanahan was expected to discuss Cousins' status when practice resumes Wednesday.
Cousins' injury means third-stringer Rex Grossman is now the team's top healthy quarterback. Robert Griffin III is returning from knee surgery and is hoping to be cleared for the regular season opener Sept. 9.
