Dalvin Cook shows up on injury report with chest injury

The Vikings may get receiver Adam Thielen back on Monday night. They may not have running back Dalvin Cook.

Cook popped up on the team’s first injury report in advance of Monday’s game at Seattle with a chest injury. He was limited in practice.

If Cook can’t play, or if he can’t take his normal workload, rookie Alexander Mattison would get more work. And while Mattison is capable of doing more, it becomes harder to upset the Seahawks without Cook, one of the very best running backs in the league.

In addition to Cook and Thielen, who both were limited, defensive tackle Linval Josepth (knee), safety Harrison Smith (hamstring), defensive end Everson Griffen (knee), safety Anthony Harris (groin), and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (knee) also were limited. Guard Josh Kline (concussion) fully participated; linebacker Ben Gedeon (concussion) did not practice.

  1. Ouch, that is quite a list. Fingers crossed most of them are well enough to play at a high level. You would hope after a bye week you would be getting healthy but…….,

  2. Vikings are scary at full strength

    ++++

    During the current 6 wins out of in 7 streak, the wins have come against teams with a combined record of 21-45.

    Better than that, yes, but not scary.

  3. Soo…im not a fan of Garrett but at this moment he is the escape goat for Dak Prescott

    Kellen Moore playcalling is very basic. Dak is not even remotely close to a 20million dollar man
    Garrett cannot discipline or step up when his coordinators can’t produce.
    Jerry, time to draft a kicker for once?
    Special Teams Coach has been lucky because of Garrett but he needs to go after last weeks game for sure

  4. In the last 5 years the Vikings have the most wins in the NFC.

    And yet eight teams have more playoff wins over the same period. (Just in the NFC). Hmm.
