On Thursday night, the Minnesota Vikings hosted the Washington Redskins in what was a "revenge game" for several players on the field.

Former Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins inked a lucrative deal with the Vikings - replacing Keenum, who ended up in Washington.

Former star running back Adrian Peterson, who started his career in Minnesota, made his return on Thursday night as well.

Unfortunately for the Redskins, Keenum suffered a hit to the head in the second quarter and he's currently being evaluated for a concussion. His revenge game has been put on hold as former Ohio State star Dwayne Haskins entered the game.

It's a tough blow for Keenum, who led the Vikings to the NFC title game during his run in Minnesota. However, since his move to Washington, it's been tough sledding for the former Houston Cougars star. He failed to have the same impact on the Redskins he had with the Vikings, though that's not all his fault. Cousins, meanwhile, flourished in the first half against Washington. He racked up 173 yards on 12-of-13 passing as he led the Vikings up and down the field. If Keenum can't return, the rookie out of Ohio State will continue under center. Stay tuned for the latest on Keenum. UPDATE: Keenum has been ruled OUT.

Haskins will play in his absence.
