Watch: Everson Griffen, Dalvin Cook crack eggs on Kirk Cousins' head

Cousins was called out to take part in the Crack Cancer challenge.

Kirk Cousin was left with egg on his face at the Vikings' training camp Thursday afternoon, but it was purely intentional.

The Vikings Quarterback was the latest NFL star to accept the "Crack Cancer" challenge in support of the Willie Strong Foundation's efforts to combat pediatric brain cancer.

It was Cousins' turn having been challenged by "Good Morning Football's" Kyle Brandt.

He roped in defensive end Everson Griffen and running back Dalvin Cook to assist him, though we dare say they didn't need much persuading to crack eggs over their leader's head.

You can see the results below, with Griffen really putting some extra sauce on the splats, while Cook was – probably sensibly – far kinder to his QB.
