Kirk Cousins has a little more time on his hands after his season ended in devastating fashion.
Cousins has since been ruled out for the rest of the campaign, which, although disappointing, means he at least gets to spend more quality time with his family and children.
The 35-year-old clearly isn’t letting the injury dampen his mood. He recently shared footage to social media of himself reading at his son Cooper’s school.
Cousins shared the short clip to Instagram where he can be seen reading a book in front of a captivated audience.
He also shared a photo with Cooper’s classmates with the caption: “Cooper asked me to read to his school today, as they kick off ‘Book Week’ with pajama day… we had a blast!”
Cousins’ fans were loving the video, and praised the 4x Pro Bowler for giving some of his time to the youngsters.
“I’m sorry, but this is another reason why no one can hate Kirk cousins,” one fan replied.
“Love that! What a great Dad!!,” wrote another.
“Kirk is the best!! I’m sure the whole class enjoyed it!,” a third said.
“Just Kirk being Kirk,” someone else commented.
It comes after Kirk was praised for signing autographs at a kid’s Halloween party.
Cousins was spotted signing the autographs a matter of days after his season-ending injury. He moved around on a scooter and was lauded by one youngster’s dad for taking the time out of his day.
“My nephew met you tonight at the Halloween party,” the happy father wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “You could have stayed away, you could have said no to an autograph.
“No one would have blamed you after the day you have had. Thank you for showing him that despite all the bad you can rise above it. #Vikings.”
Kirk and his wife Julie have two children together, Turner, four, and Cooper, five.
The couple often share photos of the boys to social media, including one clip from summer training camp where Turner and Cooper joined their dad at work.
“Playtime at training camp! Vikes make it so fun for the families and friends ,” Julie captioned the shots.
Cousins’ latest injury came at a time when he was playing some of the best football of his career.
His setback forced the Vikings to trade for former Cardinals QB Josh Dobbs, who has excelled in back-to-back Minnesota wins.
After this season the Vikings will likely have a decision to make at the quarterback position as Cousins’ contract is set to expire in 2024.
