Vikings doctor Chris Coetzee, who specializes in foot and ankle surgery, led the operation at Twin Cities Orthopedics on Wednesday. The Vikings placed Cousins on injured reserve Tuesday; he will miss the rest of the season after surgery.
"Surgery was a success!" Cousins posted on social media. "Grateful for your prayers, Dr. Coetzee's abilities, and our medical team. Would appreciate continued prayers! One day at a time..."
