Redskins Cheerleader 'OK' After Spill With Kirk Cousins


Football is a dangerous sport, even for cheerleaders.

That was made well known in the Redskins' Monday night loss to the Panthers, when quarterback Kirk Cousins was shoved out of bounds and took out one of the First Ladies of Football. Don't fear though, she's OK.

"Nice running into you too lol," she told Kirk Cousins on Instagram. "I'm ok."

As the fourth quarter wound down, and with the Redskins trying to run some hurry-up offense, Cousins began running towards the sideline for a first down. Just as he neared it, Panthers defensive tackle Kawaan Short gave Cousins a hard push that sent him plummeting to the ground.

Nice running into you too @kirk.cousins lol I'm ok! 👍🏻

That took poor Jordyn's legs out from underneath her, nearly causing a faceplant as she toppled over him.

Audible gasps from the press box and the crowd in the stadium  were prompted on the replays. Luckily, she popped right back up and gave the camera a big smile.

Redskins cheerleaders are tough, too.
