Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell gave an update on running back Dalvin Cook during his postgame press conference on Sunday.

Cook left Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury after fumbling on a third quarter run against the Lions. He did not return for the rest of the 28-24 win.

O’Connell said Cook is having tests done and is considered day-to-day at this point.

“Calvin just had a little bit of a shoulder deal that kinda came up on that fumble,” O’Connell said. “Unfortunate with him being three yards away from his first 100-yard day. I thought he was phenomenal.”

Cook was actually four yards shy of a 100-yard day and he scored a touchdown in the second quarter.

  1. Running to the ball tires out the defense and have cousins time to throw at the end when it was essential. A running game is a poor pass blocking offensive lines’ best friend.

  2. Cook and Swift are both great when available. Neither can be relied on to be there for every game or finishing several every season.

  3. The Vikings should not have won. They were lucky. Cousins did not inspire confidence. Before the game, I didn’t think they would cover the point spread and they didn’t. Not a surprise.

  4. “Calvin just had a little bit of a shoulder deal that kinda came up on that fumble,” O’Connell said.

    I know he’s new and all, but shouldn’t the head coach know the name of one of his best players?

  5. On the Lion’s next to last drive, Goff kept snapping the ball, with the game clock running, with between 12-17 seconds left. If he takes 4 of those down to 1 or 2 seconds, the Lions win. Poor play by Goff.

  6. O’Connell said. “Unfortunate with him being three yards away from his first 100-yard day.

    Shouldn’t the Coach know the delicate lead back has exceeded 100 yards on other occasions?

  7. Vikings got 4 calls down 14-0 to stem the tide.
    As a Viking fan, the league can stop trying to prop up this moribund team!
