Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins grandmother passed away Sunday night.

The signal-caller made the announcement on Instagram.

"Tonight my Grandma Jean went home to be with the Lord. Her passing was sudden, but because of The Gospel, we will see her again! She left a Spiritual heritage for her children's children (Deut 6:2) Her favorite song was 'In the Garden.' She is now living that hymn more than ever before."

Cousins and the Redskins will battle the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football at Lincoln Financial Field.
