Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) put in a full practice on Wednesday. It's confirmation that he'll be back -- likely in a workhorse role -- for this weekend's Wild Card game vs. the Saints.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) said Wednesday that he'll be at "full strength" for this weekend's Wild Card game against the Saints. Cook missed the final 2 regular-season games after suffering his 2nd shoulder injury of the season and might be at risk of aggravating those injuries. But he'll also be riding fresher legs after the time off.

Vikings RBs Dalvin Cook (shoulder) and Alexander Mattison (ankle) are inactive for today’s game against the Bears. Mike Boone and Ameer Abdullah will again handle backfield duties, but neither is a strong fantasy play with Minnesota expected to rest key starters, including QB Kirk Cousins.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bears. RB Alexander Mattison (ankle) is listed as questionable, but we’d be surprised if he played in this meaningless game. That'll again leave the backfield to Mike Boone and Ameer Abdullah.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Packers. But RB Alexander Mattison (ankle) is listed as questionable after returning to individual drills on Saturday. That throws a bit of a wrinkle into fantasy owners hoping to use RB Mike Boone this week. We'll continue to look for updates on Mattison's status.

Injury Predictor

Cook followed a durable college career by losing three-quarters of his rookie campaign to a left ACL tear. He was back to team workouts by June OTAs, though, and appears on track for a full start to the regular season. Cook missed just 2 games across 3 years at Florida State, despite shoulder surgeries in 2014 (as a high-schooler) and 2016 and a hamstring/ankle injury in 2015.
