Will go through MRI subsequent to being not able to complete game, Vikings’ Dalvin Cook endures crotch injury versus Seahawks
The star running back came into Week 5 as the NFL’s driving rusher yet could be set up for a nonappearance
The Minnesota Vikings couldn’t have scripted a superior beginning to “Sunday Night Football” against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5, however now the way in to their hostile achievement could be sidelined pushing ahead.
In the wake of piling on almost 90 yards from scrimmage in a little more than two quarters to begin Sunday’s matchup, star running back Dalvin Cook endured a crotch injury on a second from last quarter get and is set to go through a MRI for the infirmity on Monday.
The injury at first drove Cook away from Sunday’s down and go through a storage space assessment, pushing reinforcement Alexander Mattison into the No. 1 running back spot for the Vikings, who regarded Cook sketchy to return.
The Pro Bowler did, truth be told, re-visitation of the sideline – and afterward onto the field – later in the second from last quarter, yet not for long.
Mattison immediately continued the full remaining burden at running back, with Cook withdrawing to the sidelines after only one more play. Mentor Mike Zimmer said a short time later Cook couldn’t play through the injury.
A 1,000-yard breakout rusher in 2019, Cook entered Sunday night’s issue as the NFL’s driving ball-transporter through about a month, with 424 yards and six scores to his name.
New off a five-year, $63 million agreement augmentation inked in September, he’s been the highlight of Minnesota’s offense throughout the previous two years, scoring a profession high 13 scores in 2019.
Wounds, notwithstanding, are no more odd to the 25-year-old back. Cook missed 19 joined games somewhere in the range of 2017 and 2019, remembering 12 as a newbie and five for his sophomore season.
In the event that he winds up missing additional time in the Vikings’ backfield, the group would figure to depend on Mattison, their 22-year-old previous third-rounder, just as save Mike Boone and veteran fullback C.J. Ham.
