NFL: NOV 28 Vikings at 49ers

A report last week indicated Vikings running back Dalvin Cook would miss the team’s next two games with a shoulder injury, but he took a step back toward the field on Tuesday.

Cook was listed as a limited participant in practice for the first time since getting hurt in Week 12. Wednesday will bring another practice and an injury designation that sheds light on whether Cook will make it back sooner than expected or if he’s getting a head start on Week 15.

Wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) missed his second straight practice and looks doubtful to play against the Steelers on Thursday. The same is true of left tackle Christian Darrisaw (ankle).

Linebackers Anthony Barr (knee, hamstring) and Eric Kendricks (biceps) both moved from limited to full participation on Tuesday. Barr said on Tuesday that he will play after missing Sunday’s game.

  1. I don’t really blame the refs for this. However I do suspect they were behind that ugly mess with Everson Griffen.

  2. Doesn’t matter, Mattison can do it on his own…more important is getting Thielen back and not having Zimmer and Kubiak throw away games by leaving points on the board through bad coaching. Even if they do make the playoffs, time for Kubes, Zimmer and Cousins to hit the road, Spielman too, if possible.

  3. With Darrisaw likely missing another game, I’ll be interested to see if Zimmer admits his mistake and starts Rashod Hill instead of Oli Udoh at left tackle. Hill is the backup left tackle and started five games there this year. Instead of inserting him in the lineup and moving on with everything else as usual, they took Udoh, a career right tackle who has been failing as the starting right guard, and moved him to left tackle. Then they moved the center to right guard and put the benched center back in. Continuity is incredibly important to an offensive line but Zimmer made three changes when he could have made one, including putting a guy in a position that he’d never played before.

  4. Did everyone know that in the Lions game they played Bradbury at center, Mason Cole at guard and Udoh at left tackle? The coaching staff got together and instead of making one change, Rashad Hill for injured Darrisaw, or even Brandal for Darrisaw, THEY MAKE THREE CHANGES to the line (60%), in a game they desperately need. Do me a favor, don’t risk further injury to Cook, Darrisaw and Kendricks. The next coaching regime is going to need them. You coaches go back to playing Russian roulette with no empty cylinders and the gun pointed at your foot.

    There was a reason for the position switch. Most of the line is garbage. Hill is junk as well.

  6. I’m still a little bit concerned about Dalvin’s misogynistic attitude and disgusting actions towards women.
    The latest pictures and text messages were disturbing to say the least.

    Unfortunately, the league and team have decided a blind eye is the best course of action moving forward, and the fans seem content to just blame the refs as usual.
    A really sad and disappointing situation.

  7. Let me know when we get a NEW head coach, a NEW defensive coordinator who doesn’t play a “We don’t want to hurt your feelings defense”, a NEW offensive line coach, a NEW defensive line coach-the NEW head coach will be a former offensive coordinator from either the Buffalo Bills or San Francisco 49ers. But until then what’s there ain’t gonna do it=(

  8. Gracelyn Trimble was buried to the ground and beaten with a broomstick.

    Dalvin Cook said “I’m sorry about that. The situation got out of control from the jump.”

  9. I hope he’s not coming back so he can join Thielen and JJ in that ridiculous little girly dance after they score. I mean I know they know they’re Heidis, but come on man!

  10. The season is lost, if the Vikings were smart they’d put Cook on the shelf for the rest of the season and ride & evaluate the remaining backs on their roster. Backs have a limited shelf life and Cook is a talent – so save him for next year. Of course, the Vikings are not smart – they’ll run him into the ground as soon as he’s able to feed himself with that arm.

  11. In Zimmer speak that means he will only carry the ball 20 times or less until they get that 14 point lead then he turns the dogs loose and blitzs on every pass play.

  12. For much of the year the Vikings have been the butt of a few jokes, but after the loss to the Lions, they are the laughing stock of the NFL.
    It’s not even close.
    And no Dalvin Cook return is ever going to fix it.

    Ummmm…..you state Mattison can “do it on his own”, and then you say the Vikings left points on the board. The points that were not scored were because of lousy play calling….on Mattison runs.

    NFL QB sacks taken: Cousins, 18. There are at least 21 nfl QB’s that have been sacked more. Cousins ranks 4th in passing yards and TD’s. He only has 3 int’s. The team is middle of the pack for rushing, which makes sense when your QB is near the top in stats. I’m not going to pretend the OL is great, but the offense sure seems to be doing very well considering you assess them as “garbage”.
