Sprains ankle late in loss
Cook carried the ball 22 times for 131 yards and caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Cardinals. Per Eric Smith of the Vikings' official site, Cook was slowed by an ankle sprain late in the game.
The running back didn't find the end zone, but he otherwise posted huge numbers in a losing effort. The fact that Cook was able to play through his ankle issue suggests it isn't serious, but he could be limited in practice to begin next week as the Vikings try to keep him healthy. Cook has 252 scrimmage yards through two games, a total he should be able to add to significantly in Week 3's clash with a Seahawks defense that just got steamrolled by Derrick Henry.
