Kirk Cousins, the king of content who also plays quarterback in the NFL, will be a guest on Monday night's "ManningCast" on ESPN2. 

The Minnesota Vikings' star quarterback hasn't held a public interview since rupturing his Achilles Oct. 29 in Green Bay. Since then, he's scooted around at a children's Halloween party, gone grocery shopping with the help of a motorized cart and crawled into the ocean

Cousins confirmed his looming TV appearance in a fun promo video with Peyton Manning's Omaha Productions, as seen in the X post below. 

Cousins helped dig the Vikings out of an 0-3 hole to start the season. He threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns before suffering the season-ending injury in Green Bay. That win got the Vikings back to .500 at 4-4 and they've gone 3-2 since then. 

Cousins will undoubtedly provide updates about his injury and what he's been doing behind the scenes to help Vikings quarterbacks Josh Dobbs, Nick Mullens and Jaren Hall. 

It'll also be interesting to see if Cousins addresses his future. The 35-year-old will become a free agent in March and despite head coach Kevin O'Connell suggesting that he'd like Cousins back in 2024, nothing is a sure thing. 

The one thing that makes a Cousins return more likely is that the Vikings have played well enough to be in playoff contention, meaning they probably won't have a high pick to take one of the coveted quarterbacks in the upcoming draft class. Minnesota could very well draft a QB in the first round and let him learn from Cousins for a year or two before taking over as the starter. 

Or who knows, maybe the Vikings feel really good about Hall's future? There are a lot of moving parts and Cousins could provide some clarity about his recovery and future outlook when he joins Peyton and Eli on the "ManningCast."
