An MRI on the right foot of Washington Redskins backup quarterback Kirk Cousins revealed no ligament damage, according to an NFL.com report. But NFL.com's Jeff Darlington tweeted that Cousins said it would be "pushing it" to play Saturday in Washington's third preseason game.

With Robert Grifffin III, and now Cousins, in the midst of rehab, the Redskins currently have Rex Grossman and Pat White as backups should the team need insurance to start off the season. But Washington expects to have RGIII and Cousins, the team's fourth-round pick last year, ready for Week 1 when the team kicks off its season against the Eagles on Sept. 9.

Cousins, who injured his foot against the Steelers on Monday, his 25th birthday, could still miss the next week or two of practice with what is being treated as a mild-foot sprain, according to reports.

The Redskins are already without defensive tackle Barry Cofield, wide receiver Leonard Hankerson and wide receiver Aldrick Robinson because of various injuries.
