Former second round pick and stud rookie running back Dalvin Cook was off to a great start this season, but it looks like it could be cut short. He suffered a non-contact knee injury and the Vikings public relations department has confirmed he is out for the game:
Here is video of the incident:
You can see him grab his knee immediately as he goes down and he seems to know it’s pretty serious. He had 66 rushing yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in this game.
Cook had 82 receiving yards and 230 rushing yards to go with a touchdown coming into the game against the Detroit Lions.
The Patriots lost Julian Edelman for the year in the preseason to a similar injury. It was also non-contact and it turned out to be a torn ACL. Of course, we hope that’s not the case for Cook, but it doesn’t look promising as of now. Our thoughts and prayers are with him at this time.
