The GM Shuffle breaks down biggest takeaways from Week 8 of 2023 NFL season

Hosts Michael Lombardi and Femi Abebefe discuss the impact of all the QB injuries — including Vikings’ Kirk Cousins — in Week 8.

While we near the halfway point of the 2023 NFL season, Week 8 turned into the week of the injured quarterback.

Kirk Cousins headlines the long list of injuries to signal-callers. The Vikings passer suffered a torn Achilles tendon in Minnesota’s victory over the Green Bay Packers. Former Packers QB Aaron Rodgers may come back this season from that injury, but Cousins surely won’t. His season — and his Vikings career — are all but over.

Cousins might have been the most devastating injury, but it wasn’t the only one to knock out a quarterback. The GM Shuffle discusses the impact and ramifications of Cousins and the other major injuries in today’s episode.

Listen to the full episode below.
