The Vikings updated their injury report Saturday to confirm that cornerback Chris Cook will not play against the Packers Sunday.
Cook isn’t hurt; he’s currently behind bars following a domestic assault charge.
It’s not the Vikings really had an option here. Cook is currently being held in jail without bail, and it’s expected that he will remain there until Monday morning.
Cook risks eventual punishment from the league on the issue, especially since he has a prior arrest for a gun charge. He was eventually acquitted for that charge.
In the last nine months alone, there have been six arrests of members of the Vikings. Cook has been involved in two of them.
