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 also replaced Rodgers after the 2019 season and after the 2016 season. 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. Titans defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons and left guard Rodger Saffold also have been selected as injury replacements.
