Frazier says Chris Cook will play

As the Vikings try to continue a late-season run that could result in a playoff berth, they’ll be getting back one of their key players on defense.

Cornerback Chris Cook, a high second-round pick in 2010, will be activated from injured reserve on Saturday.  He’ll play in Houston on Sunday, when the Vikings face the Texans.

“He’s far enough along that we’re going to for sure play him,” coach Leslie Frazier said, via Dan Wiederer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.  “It’s just a matter of how much.”

A.J. Jefferson and rookie Josh Robinson have performed well in Cook’s absence.  Still, the Vikings need all the help they can get in the coming weeks, with receiver Andre Johnson on the docket for Sunday and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers looming.

    I imagine we’ll see a much healthier dose of Arian Foster than Andre Johnson.

    AJ Jefferson has actually been horrible in his absence, even fumbling his only kick return. It will be nice to have Cook back on D.

    It doesn’t matter.

    The first vikings choice in the 2010 draft has missed more games than he has been on the game day roster.

    Combine that with his 2 arrests since joining the vikings and no other team would trade for him.
