Dalvin Cook injury update: Vikings RB says leaving game vs. Seahawks was precautionary

first_imgVikings running back Dalvin Cook went to the locker room midway through the third quarter of Monday night’s 37-30 loss to the Seahawks and didn’t play another snap, but he said after the game he was held out for precautionary reasons. Cook had popped up on the Vikings injury report Thursday with a chest injury that he said occurred last week against the Broncos and limited him in practice. He practiced fully Friday and began Monday’s game without issue, but the injury was aggravated against the Seahawks. Dalvin Cook said he got hit on the chest injury he’d sustained against the Broncos, but added he could have gone back in the game, saying he sat for precautionary reasons. He said he’ll be good to go for Detroit.— Ben Goessling (@GoesslingStrib) December 3, 2019On his final play of the game, Cook was trying to recover his own fumble but had his arm pinned behind him by a defender. He walked to the locker room, was listed as questionable to return, came back to the sideline quickly but never put his helmet on or re-entered the game. The fumble gave Seattle a key possession late in the close game.  Minnesota wide receiver Stefon Diggs was also hurt on the play, but he quickly recovered and was in on Minnesota’s next drive.MORE: Updated NFL playoff pictureHere’s the Diggs & Cook injuries pic.twitter.com/O9pAqUAy8u— Vikings Blogger (@firstandskol) December 3, 2019Without Cook, the Vikings relied on backup Alexander Mattison, a rookie with 394 yards on 82 carries entering Monday and added 22 yards on four rushes against the Seahawks.last_img read more
