Chris Cook back to practice, on track to return for Vikings

Vikings cornerback Chris Cook returned to practice Thursday, putting him on track to return for the Vikings Dec. 23 game against the Texans.

Cook was placed on IR/designated for return, and today was the first day he was eligible to practice, according to Judd Zulgad of 1500ESPN.com.

Cook suffered a broken right arm on Oct. 26 against the Buccaneers, while trying to tackle running back Doug Martin.

It was just the latest in a long string of injuries for the 2010 second-round pick. He barely played his senior year in college, and knee problems limited him to six games last season.

The Vikings are still on the fringes of the playoff hunt at 6-6, but getting him back would provide a bit of a boost.

    I think it will be a great morale booster for the defense to see what we have at full strength against good teams. As far as offense, let Ponder play out the string, we’re not winning 4 straight. Once Frazier and Spielman see he’s not the answer, we can work on a suitable replacement until we find our qb of the future. BTW, Musgrave has to go too. You can’t have the baddest man in the land and can’t “muster” any sort of passing game.

    can he score three pick-sixes per game?

    Fine, let musgrave go! but Ponder is a bye product of Musgraves coaching and the fact that he has no recievers he can trust to run the right routes or catch the ball, Or even fight for a ball!! Ponder IS NOT! I SAID! NOT THE PROBLEM!!

    pretty sure it was more than knee problems that limited his playing time last year.

    and by the way i’m a huge Vikes fan!!

    Ok did Musgrave clock the packers cb in the back of the head when ap was 5 yards open streaking down the feild?? no. Did Musgrave make that pathetic toss to toby what got his bell rang? no. Did Musgrave throw that sorry @ss lob in the endzone that ws picked off?? NO!! i can go on and on peeps Ponder is an absoulte joke!! I dont want to hear Musgrave is the problem. Then i’m hearing Vikes dont have WR. Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees make their WR.. QB’s make great Teams. Ap is shredding the league, Teams are stacking 8-9 players in the box and Pathetic Ponder cant even make a precision pass to anyone other then the CB’s. Every WR is open at one point in their route, even more so one on one with the box stacked 8 or 9 dudes. Everything is short because he has a noodle arm and teams know it. The answer is clearly PONDER!! Its sad to see ap do all this and the Owner,coaches for the Vikes allow this piece of trash QB we pay the price of admission to see play. I’m disgusted with the Team and any bozo thinking Ponder is the future… Zygi should be slapped, Frazier and Musty Musgrave should be fired. Just watching Ponder is torture!!
