Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That's an upgrade over last week, when he sat out both Wednesday and Thursday. Cook seemingly has a shot to play against the Cardinals this weekend, but we'll continue to monitor his progress over the next couple of days.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Eagles. That leaves Latavius Murray as Minnesota’s lead back and a solid bet for 15+ touches. But a matchup with a Philly defense allowing just 2.7 yards per carry to RBs leaves Murray as just a RB3 or flex.

Broncos LB Todd Davis (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Jets. He's a decent flex option for IDP leagues that allow 4+ LBs into weekly lineups.

The Vikings don't expect RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) to play Sunday afternoon against the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cook is officially questionable but put in only a limited Friday workout after playing sparingly last Thursday night against the Rams. An inactive Cook would give Latavius Murray the start against 1 of the league's toughest run defenses.

Broncos LB Todd Davis (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He returned to a limited practice Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. We'll check on his status Sunday morning.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Eagles. He put in a limited practice on Friday after missing the previous 2 days and then deemed himself a game-time decision. Vikings-Eagles doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET, so we might not know Cook’s status until 3. Even if he plays, he’ll be a risky fantasy start after playing just 18 snaps and carrying 10 times last week. If Cook is inactive, Latavius Murray will serve as Minnesota’s lead back and be a low-end RB3 or flex in fantasy lineups in a tough matchup.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. HC Mike Zimmer called him "questionable" to play against the Eagles this weekend, but we'd consider him on the wrong side of 50/50. Check back tomorrow for another update on Cook's status, but fantasy owners should be making other plans.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) missed Wednesday's practice. He didn't carry in the 2nd half of last Thursday night's game against the Rams, although it seemed like that was part of Minnesota's plan to limit his reps. We're expecting Cook to play against the Eagles this weekend, but he'll be a risky fantasy starter until we see him back to 100%.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is officially active for tonight's game against the Rams. He's expected to be on a "pitch count," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but still sits inside the top 15 in the Week 4 RB Rankings. The Rams are allowing 4.9 yards per carry to RBs.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is expected to play against the Rams tonight but will be on a "pitch count," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's impossible to know exactly how limited Cook will be. And it will probably depend on how he's feeling and performing once the game gets rolling. Consider him a risk/reward RB2 in Week 4 fantasy lineups.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Rams. He was officially limited in practice on Tuesday and Wednesday. Cook is shaping up as a game-time decision, so we'll find out his status around 7 pm ET tonight. If active, he'll carry elevated risk but will be worth getting in most fantasy lineups vs. a Rams defense that's allowed 4.9 yards per carry to RBs through 3 weeks.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Tuesday. Both he and HC Mike Zimmer were non-committal earlier today about his availability for Thursday night's game against the Rams. Check back tomorrow for another update on Cook's status.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer said Tuesday that there's a "possibility" RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) plays against the Rams on Thursday night. We'll track his practice participation over the next couple days. If active, Cook will be worth getting back into fantasy lineups against a beatable L.A. run defense.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook said he "definitely" expects to be ready for Thursday night's game against the Rams, according to insider Chris Tomasson. That quick turnaround -- plus an easily winnable game against the Bills -- probably played a part in Minnesota holding Cook out today. We'll keep a close eye on his practice participation early next week.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills after missing practice all week. Perhaps Minnesota is just being cautious in an easily winnable game, but it's clear Cook is dealing with more than what he claimed was just cramping. We'll see about his Week 4 availability. Meanwhile, Latavius Murray figures to get feature-back usage this weekend in a prime spot vs. a Bills defense that's already coughed up 6 RB TDs through 2 games.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. It's officially time to start worrying about his Week 3 status -- especially since Minnesota can handle the Bills without Cook. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow, but owners should start making other plans. Latavius Murray will be a borderline RB1 if Cook is inactive on Sunday.

The Vikings listed RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) as "did not practice" on Wednesday. Minnesota beat writers saw Cook on the field during the open portion of practice, but he evidently didn't participate. We'll see if he's able to do anything on Thursday. Cook is still expected to play against the Bills this weekend.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) practiced on Wednesday. He exited last weekend's game with what he later said was cramping, and the fact that he's on the field early in the week confirms that he's on track to play against the Bills on Sunday. Cook remains a RB1 in that plus matchup.

The Browns have signed K Greg Joseph. He'll presumably be replacing K Zane Gonzalez, who has missed 3 of 5 FGs and 2 of 5 XPs to open the season. Joseph lost the Dolphins' battle to Jason Sanders this summer after converting just 69.5% of his career FG attempts at Florida Atlantic. He's not a fantasy option.

UPDATE: The Browns have released Gonzalez.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero that the hamstring issue that knocked him out of overtime was just cramping. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation this coming week, but Cook should be fine for next Sunday's tasty matchup against the Bills.
