Vikings place Chris Cook on IR, with return designation

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin leaps over Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook in Minneapolis Reuters

The Vikings announced that cornerback Chris Cook was being placed on injured reserve, with the designated for return tag.

Cook broke his wrist in last night’s loss to the Buccaneers, but they obviously think he can be back in a few months.

That means he could come back later this year, in time to play the regular season finale or in the playoffs.

Unlike the Jaguars with linebacker Daryl Smith, there’s actually a chance the Vikings might have a playoff game.

    Vikings fan. There’s no chance. No QB = No Playoffs.

    he broke his arm. Frasier differntiated the wrist/arm break at his press conf, an hour ago…

    Playoffs?

    Don’t talk about playoffs? Playoffs? Are you kidding me?

    … the playoffs! Hilarious!

    Just like the Jaguars…..there is no chance the Vikings have a playoff game.

    There, I just fixed the last sentence for you.

    Hope he makes it back.

    I’ve seen 2 Vikings games this season and the Vikings will never compete with the elite teams because they do not have an elite QB. Even his 20 yard passes flutter down the field – no arm strength. He looked so awkward rolling to his left last night too – like a high school QB.

    I think its going to be a tough fight for the Vikings to make it to the post-season.

    Even thoughthey seem like a team that can grind a game out and have it decided on last second field goal like they did the first two weeks. If they ever get down early like last night, its near impossible for them to come back on the arm of Ponder at this point in his career.

    They got a way tougher schedule coming up. Also they need to play all but one of thier division games so that will be a pretty big task.

    There’s all this talk by Minny fans that you need a true #1 receiver.

    That’s true, but first you need a qb that doesn’t have a noodle arm.

    Was it his gun hand?

    Ponder has only a single off season plus a fee games under his belt so far. Peyton Manning himself had a much more brutal rookie season and he even had better receivers. Ponder, for a young QB, has looked sharp. I think the problem is that peoplr forget tha he is essentially a rookie this year (plus a few games) who is leading a team that just last year had their worst season in franchise history.

    People expect him to play like Tom Brady or Aaron Rogers, but both of those QB’s have tons more experience than Ponder and both have better all around teams surrounding them.

    Give the kid another year or two… right now it’s just too early to tell how good he will or won’t be.

    You really need to find a hobby. People are just laughing at you, now. Even other Packer fans.

    That’s too bad. Cook was actually playing pretty decent. But yeah, Ponder is terrible. We’ll never be a Super Bowl contender with him at the helm. He’s just way too limited. Which sucks, because he’s a great guy. He just doesn’t have the arm to make teams respect the passing game. Hopefully I’m wrong, but I don’t think I am.

    Just when he started to turn a corner…unfortunate.

  16. jhein23 says: Oct 26, 2012 5:24 PM

    The Vikings fans who think Christian Ponder will 1 day be franchise QB material are delusional. I don’t see what you’re seeing and neither do most of the scouts/pro football writers who cover the game for a living. Noodle arm is right.

  17. samanthasteeleruinedmyqb says: Oct 26, 2012 5:37 PM

    Anyone saying Ponder has a weak arm obviously hasn’t seen him play. He has a better than average arm and his best passes are the deep ones. Three weeks ago he was considered the best QB from last year’s draft. Now he’s a bust. Does it have to be all or nothing? Is there the slightest chance that he might be able to have a good game again this season?

  18. filthymcnasty1 says: Oct 26, 2012 6:37 PM

    A deep pass for Ponder is one with enough mustard on it to cross the line of scrimmage.

    Just horrible.

  19. bkh405 says: Oct 26, 2012 10:47 PM

    Youngblood played with a broken leg. Tiki played with a broken hand. Homeboy only needs to swat a ball out of the sky occasionally and can’t cast it up and go out after the bye?

  20. whatjusthapped says: Oct 27, 2012 7:57 AM

    Don’t chide the Viking fans for thinking that Ponder is the answer at QB. After years of watching T Jack, you have to admit Ponder is an improvement. Still not a real NFL QB, but an improvement.

  21. jerrykill4pres says: Oct 27, 2012 10:16 AM

    I don’t think it can all be blamed on Ponder. I’m not saying he’s the answer. But look at the play calling. He’s young, he’s never going to gain any confidence if Musgrave is always putting him in a bad situation. Or calling plays that aren’t suited for his skills. The play calling has been terrible. People, we are supposed to be a run first team. But when you pass on 1st, and 2nd downs, and sit in a 3rd and long, that’s not a good situation for a young qb… Remember, he’s young. Basically has one season now. with only one offseason. Coaching staff has more to do with his development than anything. And at this point, i’d blame musgrave over ponder. Peterson needs more 1st and 2nd down carries! Flat out, start there, and put the playaction in on 3rd down. Playaction doesn’t fool anyone when we don’t run the ball on 1st and 2nd down hardly ever!

    We’re posting anonymously on a sports discussion site. The fact that you think I care what you or anyone thinks of me is a laughable as your analysis.

    Interestingly, I haven’t seen you call out fellow vikings fans for trolling, or even going beyond trolling and hoping for Packers players to be injured.

    My life is fantastic, and your tears just make it that much better.

    Thanks,

    Better than you
