Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen wouldn’t have practiced for Vikings on Monday

After handing the Lions their first win of the season on Sunday, the Vikings have some injury concerns heading into their Thursday matchup against the Steelers this week.

Minnesota’s Monday injury report was an estimate, but running back Dalvin Cook is again listed as a non-participant with his shoulder injury. Cook’s shoulder issue kept him out of Sunday’s game.

And after suffering an ankle injury early in Sunday’s contest, receiver Adam Thielen wouldn’t have practiced either.

Rookie offensive lineman Christian Darrisaw and linebacker Blake Lynch (hip) also would not have practiced.

Linebacker Anthony Barr (knee/hamstring), linebacker Ryan Connelly (quad), safety Camryn Bynum (ankle), and linebacker Eric Kendricks (biceps) were listed as limited.

Cornerback Mackensie Alexander (ribs) and cornerback Bashaud Breeland (groin) would have been full.

  1. All the linebackers and secondary players should be able to play. They play so deep they don’t have to run a lot just let them come to them.

  2. Now I’m no football expert, like the crack coaching staff of the MN Vikings, but it seems to me that whenever you’re playing a winless football team, you really want to keep them winless.

    Well said

  4. I’d love to see the Vikings turn it around in time to qualify for the postseason. I wish the best for my Viking fan friends, neighbors, and family. I’d like to see the Vikings do it. I’d like to see them earn the last ticket to ride…..by beating the Packers at Lambeau, on Sunday, 01/02/2022, at 7:20 PM CST. The Packers are already in, so, no skin from them. There’s still time Viking fans. Don’t give up. Be there when they need you, no matter what. Many current Packer fans have lived through two decades of Packer Dark Years. That experience is what made us one of the strongest fan-bases in the game today, because we stuck around. Your time will come. Great things come to those who persevere. I mean it, all of it. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
