The Vikings have fired OC John DeFilippo. He was a hot name this offseason but lasts just 13 games in Minnesota. DeFilippo's offense has underachieved, ranking just 17th in yards and 20th in points. We also heard whispers that he and HC Mike Zimmer weren't on the same page, with Zimmer preferring a run-heavy offense and DeFilippo favoring the pass. We'll see who the Vikings tab as their interim OC, but the change could mean more carries for RB Dalvin Cook going forward.
Update: The Vikings have promoted former QBs coach Kevin Stefanski to interim OC. Stefanski has been with the team since 2006 but has never called plays.
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.
