ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport report that Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Browns today. Rapoport adds, "Perhaps he shares the load a bit more than usual with Alexander Mattison," but it's unclear if that's a report or an educated guess. We've shaved a bit off Cook's Week 4 projections, but he remains a strong fantasy play.
The MRI on Vikings RB Dalvin Cook's left shoulder revealed a torn labrum, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's not a season-ending injury. "The hope is this is like 2019, when the team rests Cook a few games to have him healthy for a playoff run," Rapoport adds. Cook missed 2 games with that shoulder injury, which is what former NFL head team Dr. David Chao expects him to miss this time around. That'd put Cook back on the field for Week 15, giving starts to RB Alexander Mattison the next 2 weeks vs. the Lions and Steelers.
Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has been playing through a torn labrum in his right shoulder, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It was the left shoulder that Cook dislocated in the Week 12 loss to the 49ers. Cook has a long history of shoulder problems dating back to his Florida State days. We should learn more about the right shoulder injury and how long Cook will be sidelined later today.
Vikings RB Dalvin Cook dislocated his left shoulder in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cook is set for an MRI on Monday to determine how much damage was caused by the dislocation. We should learn more about his status on Monday.
Vikings RB Dalvin Cook suffered a shoulder injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. He was in obvious pain, was carted back to the locker room and quickly ruled out. We'll update Cook's status when we know more, but this clearly looks like a potentially serious injury. Alexander Mattison will be a RB1 for however long Cook is out.
The NFL confirmed on Wednesday that Vikings RB Dalvin Cook remains eligible to play against the Vikings on Sunday, despite the assault allegations levied against him by his ex-girlfriend. There have been no criminal charges filed against Cook, though. “The NFL is reviewing the matter under the personal conduct policy, and there is no change to his status," the league said in a statement. HC Mike Zimmer said that Cook will practice on Wednesday. This is a developing situation. But, as of now, Cook seems on track to play this weekend.
