Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook said after injuring his shoulder in Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks he’ll definitely be ready to play in Week 14 against the Lions.
“At the end of the year, there’s some bumps and bruises, but I’ll be alright,” said Cook h/t Adam Schefter before adding he’ll “definitely” be ready when the Vikings host the Lions.
Cook went into last night’s game with a chest injury and injured his shoulder during it. As reported here on NFLNews.co, Cook had to come out of the game in the third quarter after aggravating his shoulder he originally injured in the second quarter.
On Monday night, Cook was limited to nine carries for 29 yards and a touchdown. He added three receptions for 35 yards. He fumbled twice and lost one, the latter occurring on the play that ultimately caused him to leave the game.
The Seahawks won the game 37-30.
Cook has still had a stellar season and the 8-4 Vikings will hope he can play through the pain as they continue to chase the 9-3 Packers in the NFC North. The Vikings play the Lions at home, where they have not lost this season.
